What a summer it has been so far, wow! To be able to get outdoors with the family and spend time on the boat, go hiking and explore the amazing greenery we have around us, check out new attractions like the new EAGLE COASTER at Cypress Mountain (you have to go; it is so fun) and enjoy indoor/outdoor dining again has been amazing.
We mentioned the Eagle Coaster earlier, a 1.7 kilometer track that has a vertical drop of 279 meters and gives you some of the best views along the way, and it has turned into a must-do this summer! After you have tried the gravity-fed roller coaster (which goes up to 40/km an hour, by the way), you can sit back and talk about everyone’s crazy ride at the Crazy Raven restaurant, which is open until 6pm.
Playland is now open!! There is nothing more fun than enjoying time with the family at the PNE with games, attractions, good mood food, and family fun every which way you turn. There will be significantly reduced capacity, which is great because that means NO LONG LINES! Be sure to purchase tickets in advance and check out the new feature exhibit, Adventures in Happyland!
You think you have seen fireworks? Just wait until you see what the celebration of light is planning; wow! Set to light up the sky over English Bay for 3 nights, the festivities (SHOREFEST) will be held at Sunset Beach, where bands will start playing in the early afternoon and get you excited for the main event later in the evening.
One of the most spectacular air shows we have seen, this years’ event will be like a drive-in movie except WAY bigger and more awesome. Featuring the CF Snowbirds, US Air Force F-22 Raptor, RCAF CF-18 Hornet and much more, it is a show that you will not want to miss! Make sure you buy your tickets in advance!!
We have always enjoyed the Ambleside Farmers’ Market, especially this year more than ever, as it is a way to help support your local farmers and businesses! Now located near the foot of 13th Street in West Vancouver, there will be a great selection of prepared foods, entertainment, and vendors! Visit their website for more information.
