Planning a visit or staycation in Vancouver this fall? Then you’ll want to take advantage of the gorgeous fall scenery. From going on a hike around Stanley Park to visiting the city’s very own botanical garden, there are so many ways to enjoy fall in Vancouver. Keep reading to discover our top three fall activities in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Go on a Hike
Vancouver and the province of British Columbia as a whole is known for its many parks and hiking trails. However, we truly believe there is no better time to go hiking than in the fall. Whether you want to get your heart rate up at Grouse Grind or even just go for a relaxing walk around Stanley Park, the city is never more beautiful than in the fall months. Expect to see brightly-coloured foliage at every turn and feel crunchy leaves beneath your feet.
Visit VanDusen Botanical Garden
Many people don’t realize that plenty of flowers bloom in the fall. This makes Vancouver’s VanDusen Botanical Garden a must-visit in September or October. Autumn crocus, hydrangeas, and heathers will all be in bloom, not to mention the stunning Japanese maple trees that are part of the Meadow Garden.
Spend an Afternoon at Maplewood Farm
Just minutes from downtown Vancouver lies Maplewood Farm. This family-friendly site is part farm, part petting zoo and sits on five acres of land. Visitors can expect to get up close and personal with pigs, donkeys, cows, rabbits, sheep, horses, and goats. Overall, the farm is home to over 200 animals. People of all ages will love getting out of the city and spending time with these adorable animals. Be sure to say hi to Rosie, the farm's Sicilian miniature donkey, and Fluffy, the beloved giant New Zealand white rabbit.
If you’re visiting Vancouver this fall, then you’ll want to book a room at the Hotel BLU Vancouver. Just a short distance from some of the best fall activities in the city, we combine quality service and luxe amenities with an unbeatable location.
