Vancouver is Canada’s burlesque capital. There are so many famous performers that have come from Vancouver, such as Burgundy Brixx, April O’Peel, and Precious Metal. Why not channel your inner diva and go to a class? Burlesque in Vancouver has lots of classes available to suit everyone. A great way to get out of your comfort zone and make some new friends.
Vancouverites love to kayak, especially in the summer. You can kayak along Vancouver beaches, around Stanley Park, and through False Creek. If you’re a beginner, you can take a lesson or a tour with Deep Cove Kayak.
Go for a Cycle
Going on a bike tour is the perfect way to see the beautiful city of Vancouver. Bike Tour Vancouver goes to lots of great places around the city, check out the murals on Main St! Tour guide Jeremy is a third generation Vancouverite who has a great passion and enthusiasm to show off the history of Vancouver. It’s a great way to meet people, especially those visiting the city, or new to the city.
Bring Your Own Best Friend for a Walk
Who knew there were so many dedicated dog parks in Vancouver? Emery Barnes Park is just one of them. So why not bring your little fur baby out for a walk and while you’re making friends, let them make friends too! Your dog will enjoy making new friends in Vancouver.
