Things to do this spring break 2021 in Vancouver
We all know travelling and vacations are off the table but just because we’re still in a pandemic, doesn’t mean you can’t have fun. There are a ton of fun and family-friendly activities you can do this spring break in Vancouver. So, go ahead and scroll.
Enjoy the fresh air and explore.
BC is home to gorgeous sceneries and landscapes. Here are three parks that have stunning views and easy trails.
A hidden gem located in Richmond, BC, just beyond the YVR airport. It’s a beautiful place to enjoy a picnic, go for a run, take a stroll on bikes and watch the sunset.
You’ve probably heard this one before, but it’s still an awesome park to visit. It has a breathtaking view of the Burrard Inlet and mountains. Parking is ample and washrooms are available.
This park is located west of Horseshoe Bay! Whytecliff Park is famous for underwater diving, something you can do as well. It has a series of hiking trails with spectacular views. You can definitely capture those insta-worthy photos. Parking is limited, so just make sure you get there a little earlier.
I highly recommend wearing proper footwear to prevent injuries and soreness. And remember to pack snacks and water!
Grab some dessert
After all that hiking, walking or running, you definitely deserve a treat! Vancouver is home to a variety of delicious and delightful desserts places that will satisfy your sweet tooth.
This place is for you, cake lovers! Sweet Revenge has a selection of cakes including chocolate mousse and tiramisu. All their pastries are baked entirely from scratch and made with organic ingredients. Combine your cake choice with tea or coffee to get the full sweet experience.
This doughnut shop is located in the heart of Chinatown. Their decadent brioche doughnuts are heaven on earth! It’s fluffy, gooey and feels good. I’m obsessed and you will be too! They have a ton of flavours like salted caramel, matcha, lemon curd and so much more! There is always a line-up out the door, so definitely pre-order to get some of those bad boys.
Of course we had to add an ice cream place! This dessert shop is located in Commercial Drive.
They have asian inspired ice cream flavours, like vietnamese coffee and HK milk tea. Yes, they have bubble tea frozen desserts! Bubble tea and ice cream is one of the best duos out there - name a better combo, I’ll wait. Also, on the weekends they offer a boba toast box and bubble tea latte.
