First off is my top outdoor places to see

Stanley Park- Vancouver, BC- -> Run, Walk, Bike the Seawall Link

Capilano Suspension Bridge - Vancouver, BC Link

Sea to Sky Gondola & Suspension Bridge - North of Vancouver, BC Link

Al Habrich's Ridge Trail

Once you get off the gondola there is a gift shop, and restaurant towards your right hand side, along with the suspension bridge. To your left are a choice of different hikes to do. We chose to hike the Al Habrich's Ridge Trail, perfect for the more adventurous spirit! If you want something a little easier there are lots of other hikes to choose from! Link

Jim Haberl Hut-Squamish, BC- We took a helicopter to this hut that's on a glacier.(we went mid March) The people at Blackcomb Aviations are incredible, and the views were pretty cool as well ;)

Restaurants

There are so many awesome restaurants in the area, but I have to share my all time favorite one with you. We go here every time we're in the area. Sometimes even multiple times!

Sustainable Dining, good vibes and amazing food! This awesome breakfast/brunch place is called Forage!

Shopping

Gastown- Vancouver, BC- The Historic Heart of Vancouver (make sure to check out the steam clock!) Link

Robson St.- Vancouver, BC Link

Granville St. - Vancouver, BC Link

Wild and Heart- Squamish, BC- This is a super cute little shop owned by an awesome couple. They make sure to handpick the brands and companies they want to sell in their store, making sure they are original and supporting good brands/companies who are doing great things. This store is a men's and women's clothing and accessories store that has an awesome boho chic/outdoorsy vibe!

You have to check it out! Link

Whistler Village- Whistler, BC- They have a lot of shopping in whistler village, think of an outdoor mall! Make sure to check out the Olympic Rings from when they hosted the 2010 Winter Olympics! Link

Relax and Restore

Scandinave Spa- Whistler, BC- If you are needing some love and attention after all your adventuring; exploring and probably quite a bit of driving, the Scandinave spa is the place for you!

If you are visiting in the winter time they also have a great package that includes a lift ticket to Whistler Ski Resort and a massage with access to all the baths! When we visited we went skiing one day and went to the spa the next, to make sure we get the biggest bang for our buck.

Seriously SO worth it! Link

Here are some pictures from some of these places down below.

Hope You Enjoy!!!

Much Love,

XoMicah
