Fall is that magical time of the year where the leaves change colour, the air is crisp, and everything is just a little bit more cozy.
Here are just a few of the reasons why Fall is the best in Vancouver.
The streets and parks of Vancouver transform into a sea of orange and red. Is there anything more picturesque? (With the exception of cherry blossoms in Spring, of course). Stanley Park is the perfect spot to soak it all in!
Pumpkin spiced lattes. It’s like Thanksgiving in a cup! This seasonal treat is worth the wait. Check out Starbucks or Blenz to get your fix.
The fashion. Get outside and enjoy that fresh Fall air and the fashion the season brings with it. Scarves, boots, and sweaters…oh my!
Comfort food. There’s the classic turkey dinner for Thanksgiving, but also tons of other Fall favourites like stew, chili, and yes, pumpkin pie. Try the bourbon pecan pumpkin pie from Vancouver’s Pie Hole.
Can still enjoy outdoor activities. When it isn’t raining, the weather is still mild enough to get out and go for a bike ride along the seawall or an easy hike such as Lighthouse Park or Quarry Rock.
Oktoberfest. It’s easily one of Vancouver’s best events for Fall. Celebrate the season at Harvest Haus, which transforms the Queen Elizabeth Plaza into a mini Munich festival.
Not feeling guilty about staying in. Sometimes you just want to stay on the couch and binge watch your favourite show on Netflix all weekend. It’s a lot easier to do when the weather is a bit chillier outside.
Pumpkin patches. Tis’ the season to check out one of Metro Vancouver’s many pumpkin patches, having some apple cider and going on a hay ride. Also check out the corn mazes and make a day of it!
Fright Nights. One of Vancouver’s most anticipated events for Halloween. Visit some of the spooky haunted houses that will be at the Playland fair grounds this year.
Halloween parties. Vancouver always has a ton of Halloween events whether they’re in a club, at a hotel, or on a cruise. Find a costume, drink up and hey, now you have an excuse to splurge and pig out on Halloween candy.
