by Hee from Korea
Hee has been a student and an intern at CSLI for several months. She has contributed immensely to the CSLI blog. She continues to help students with the organizing of the CSLI theme nights every Thursday and is a great source of information about things to do in Vancouver. Here are her top 9 things to do in vancouver on a sunny day.
1. Biking on the seawall
Let’s rent bikes from Robson St. or Denman St. or at the seawall bike shop, and start to ride! You will need ice water, sun block, sunglasses, and long-sleeve clothes. Because when you are riding on the seawall, it can be a little bit cold.
2. Chill at the beach
Bring your blanket and go to the beach! Lie on the beach under the sun, enjoy the sunshine! But!!!! If you fall asleep without any sun protection, you will burn! Be careful.
Go to the mountains if you need fresh air and shade on a sunny day. Some of the most beautiful hikes are in the Lynn Canyon and Deep Cove. There is public transportation there.
4. Wandering the streets (could be anywhere)
Not only the streets downtown, it can be near your house, or somewhere else. I think the streets in Vancouver are so beautiful, have a lot of trees and flowers, and some houses are unique and stylish so it’s good for exploring and relaxing. Furthermore, on Granville or Robson Streets there are a lot of performances during the summer season.
5. Reading books under a tree
Like in the movies!! Bring a book, anything you like, and a soft warm blanket. Invite your girl/boyfriend for a more romantic experience.
Even if you don’t buy anything, just go window shopping. Eat delicious ice-cream, go in and out of shops, and check out the new items. Robson Street and Pacific Center are some of the popular shopping areas in downtown Vancouver.
7. Having a drink with friends on a balcony
If you don’t want to feel busy and around too many people, you can have a party at your house. Buy beer and pizza, put some music on. Sit on the balcony (if you have one), have some beers with your friends, it should be the perfect time in the summer.
8. BBQ at the park
Fortunately, many parks in Vancouver have places for BBQ!! Go with your friends, bring a bbq and MEAT and then just enjoy the sunshine, and eat a lot. But! Remember, clean everything after you enjoy your time and don’t cause a fire!!
9. Outdoor sports
Beach Volleyball, tennis, basketball, baseball, soccer etc. Let’s borrow the sports equipment from school and go to Stanley Park, English Bay, Sunset Beach or any other great beach or park in Vancouver. Whatever you want, anything will go with sunny weather!
