Food

Best Quick & Clean Food – Eternal AbundanceLocal fare and fresh juices, Eternal Abundance is a great place to fuel up before or after class. So good, you won’t even realize it’s entirely vegan!

 

Best Brunch Spot – Medina CaféExecutive Chef Adam Perrier and team have won several awards for Medina Café, which is no surprise to the locals. With incredible belgian waffles and comfort food in cast-iron skillets, this is the place to go before taking on the city.

 

Best Dinner – You Choose! With so many incredible places to dine, we thought we’d direct you to a list of some of TDM Vancouver’s top choices.

Back in the day, Katharine Hepburn, Nat King Cole, Marlene Dietrich and Gary Cooper used to frequent Rosewood. Today, it is home to a beautiful tucked-away terrace serving hand-crafted cocktails and delicious food.

Get Your Greens

Best Park – Stanley Park

Designated a national historic site of Canada, it is a magnificent green oasis amidst a heavily built urban landscape of Vancouver. On Tuesday nights on 3rd Beach, you can join the drum circle, for the love of unity, rhythm and community – a free-spirited event for all ages!

Best Bike Ride – the Seawall, which loops 10km around Stanley Park.

Best Tour – Granville Island

Located across the water from Downtown, Granville Island is home to a huge public market with fresh produce and local artisanal goods.

Best Sporting Event (Outside of Hockey) – Vancouver Whitecaps FC Soccer

Major League Soccer brings with it a vibrant and proud energy. Before and after the game, Whitecaps fans parade through the streets in their blue and white attire. Definitely something to see (and possibly partake in.)

 

Shopping

Best Spot to Shop and Wander – Gastown

Gastown may be known to be a tourist attraction, but there are tons of great restaurants, cafes and locally-owned shops that locals love to visit.

 

Music

Best Live Music – Guilt & Co.

We are not biased just because Guilt & Co. is owned by one of our own instructors and her husband, it truly is the best spot for live music. Featuring everything from Burlesque to Reggae, be sure to get there early or you might not get in at all!

 

 

So, whether on a trip with your family or traveling with your partner for a quick getaway, Vancouver in the summer is sure to win you over.
