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.

3. Hiking

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)

Strolling in downtown Vancouver

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.

6. Shopping

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

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!
