12 Reasons Why Vancouver Should be on Your Rainy Season Destination List

1.) Festivals

You can’t count how many festivals go on in Vancouver during the summer months. Paid music festivals, free music festivals, cultural festivals, block parties, car free days, etc… If you try to go to every one of them during one summer, you will feel burnt out afterwards. All of the sunshine in Vancouver is reason enough to throw parties and celebrate.

2.) Beach Bumming

Vancouver has so many beaches for you to enjoy; just don’t expect warm waters and white sand beaches. They are not perfect like the beaches in the Philippines; but they are still great places to laze around, relax, read a book, and soak up some Vitamin D.

4.) The Great Outdoors

If you like hiking, Vancouver is the place to be. Hiking trails from easy to very challenging are everywhere around the city for you to conquer. The best part is that these hiking trails usually come with a great view in the end, so it makes the hike even more worth it.

One day of outdoor fun not enough for you? Campsites can also be found everywhere around Vancouver, but take note that most outdoor enthusiasts also have the same plan. As such, it would be highly advisable to book a place in the woods weeks (or even months) beforehand. Campers also have the option to go glamping with actual toilets and shower rooms, or go one level down with outhouses or even do it the real cowboy way without toilet facilities.
