If you've recently listed your home, purchase or sold your home...you might need to plan for a litle rest and relaxation! We've come up with three awesome day trips you can do in minimal time from Vancouver. You could even spend the night and make a weekend out of it! Leave the showings up to us - and head out on one of these adventures.
1. Whistler & Sea to Sky Gondola
Head up the Sea to Sky to Squamish. Have an enjoyable lunch stop at Howe Sound Brewing. Catch the brewery tour (free) at 1:00pm. Continue the trip to Whistler, check into your hotel and head over to the Peak 2 Peak Gondola, for a stunning view of the mountains, valleys and Whistler Village. Grab some dinner at the ever enjoyable Ric's Grill, or the more casual Sushi Village. Head over to Scandinave Spa when you're done, and enjoy a wonderful, relaxing evening. (You can grab a Peak2Peak/Scandinave pass for $99 here). The morning after, head over to El Furniture Warehouse for some delicious breakfast before you head back to Vancouver.
2. Circle Farm Tour Aggassiz & Harrison Mills
Ready for some gorgeous Fraser Valley sights? Check out the Circle Farm Tour, a collection of locally owned and operated farms, restaurants and cafes where you can purchase, taste and learn all about farming in the Fraser Valley. Highlights include Sparkes Corn Barn, operating from June to September. Book a room at Rowena's Inn. Head to Harrison and have lunch at Muddy Waters Cafe. Then make your way back to your favourite stops on the way back to Rowena's Inn, following the Circle Farm Tours map. Enjoy unwiniding upon your return in Rowena's pool and spa, and then wake up to a delicious farm fresh breakfast before heading back to the city.
3. Bowen Bliss
Bowen Island is a hidden gem that is so easily accessible, going for one evening is really enjoyable. Park your car at Horseshoe Bay and walk on, or bring your bike. (Bring your bike!) Head over to the island in the morning and once you arrive, check out Crippen Park for some great beachcombing and time near the ocean. Grab lunch at Doc Morgan's pub and then take the 4km trail to Killarney Lake and take in the sights! Grab a room at Bowen Island Lodge, and enjoy an evening kayak ride before settling down to dinner at Rustique Bistro. Wake up and have an amazing breakfast at The Snug Cafe.
