Paris in springtime has nothing on Vancouver in the fall. When the leaves start turning in this neck of the woods, it’s time to fall forward. Summer is over. In Vancouver, fall is a time for a fresh start, and it doesn’t get any fresher or more invigorating than British Columbia.
Vancouver has some fun-filled fall events that are both entertaining and delicious. If you’re looking to be reinvigorated, autumn in Vancouver is a place to find renewal. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Your first step in locating the right hike is to log onto outdoorvancouver.ca. There your find all the details of the many nearby trails before you set out. There is nothing like these hikes anywhere else. Choose between a full-on excursion like Grouse Grind, or a stroll in Stanley Park, either way, you’ll be afforded fresh air and a photo-op of autumn colours that can only be found here.
We love our maples, and there is no better place to see what they do in the fall. Visit the Alma VanDusen Meadow Garden. The fiery red Japanese maples are on display. From heathers, autumn crocus, hydrangeas, and much more, the fall colours here are breathtaking. This is the ideal fall landscape.
If you prefer the cozy indoors and want to stay out of the cold fall air, there is beauty to be found indoors. Vancouver Art Gallery’s rich collection includes historical, contemporary, local, and renowned artwork that will make your visit an experience to be remembered. While there, visit one of the city’s top cafés, a natural for discussions about your visit over one of their delicious coffee drinks.
Fall also means Halloween. The full flavour of this holiday is in Vancouver. Fright Nights take over the amusement park with spooky exhibits, live shows like the Monsters of Schlock, and our special fire performances. All the rides are still there, but if those don’t scare you, there are no less than 7 haunted mansions that might.
Fall in the city is the time for the Vancouver International Film Festival. Visit 80 countries in one place. This festival has been critically acclaimed as “an unspoiled celebration of world cinema.” You shouldn’t miss this; it is one of the biggest film festivals in North America.
