Dreaming of a winter getaway? We feel you, and we want to help. Although many Canadians are used to going south for the winter, Vancouver provides the perfect alternative. With its mild climate, natural beauty, and vibrant culture, there are so many reasons to make Vancouver your winter destination this year.
Vancouver is known for its mild weather, which makes it a particularly attractive destination during the winter months. Typically, the city sees very little snowfall with temperatures rarely dropping below zero. In fact, the average daily high between December and February is 7 or 8 degrees, with the low being around 3 degrees. This makes it an ideal spot for snowbirds that wish to stay active throughout the winter and who hate having to bundle up every time they leave the house.
Just because the weather gets colder, doesn’t mean the fun stops in Vancouver. Since the weather never gets too cold or snowy, many outdoor activities continue year round. Cycling, jogging, walking, and golfing are all popular activities during the winter months. If you’re into golfing, be sure to check out Fraserview Golf Course and Langara Golf Course, both of which offer tee times all year.
Food and Culture
While Vancouver is known for its natural beauty, the city has plenty going for it in the way of food and culture. From sushi restaurants to fresh seafood by the waterfront, there are so many incredible dining options in the city. There are also several great art galleries and museums, including the Vancouver Art Gallery, the Contemporary Art Gallery, Science World, and the Museum of Anthropology, located on the University of British Columbia’s campus.
If you’re a snowbird whose usual travel plans have been hampered, then why not spend winter in Vancouver? Book your stay at the Hotel BLU Vancouver, the perfect jumping off point for exploring this beautiful Canadian city, while escaping the harsh conditions of most other provinces. We combine top-notch accommodation and luxe amenities, with an unbeatable location in the heart VanCity.
