Now, there’s nothing wrong with coming to Vancouver and enjoying all the cultural highlights, such as the museums and art galleries, during your trip. But we will say this: it’s pretty terrific to be outside in Vancouver during the summer, because there’s simply so much stuff to do. If you’re visiting with your family, then look at leaving the cultural spots to one side until your next trip, and make this one all about enjoying all of the fun outdoor activities. You’ll love it, your kids will love it. Below, we take a look at just three of the activities that are waiting for you.

To the mountains

Anyone with any aspirations to enjoy the outdoors in North Vancouver has to check out the mountains! There’s not one, not two, but three options: Grouse, Cypress, and Mount Seymour. Grouse is probably the most family-friendly, with hiking, biking, ziplining, and more activities on offer. 

At the beach

One of the best summer activities involves doing...very little! A day at the beach is always fun. You can soak up the rays, splash in the water, sit back and read -- anything and everything, so long as it’s relaxing. Kitsilano and English Bay beaches will be two you don’t want to miss. 

Cycling around

Ready to work up a sweat? Then rent some bicycles and go for a family bike ride around Stanley Park. It’s beautiful -- and especially so first thing in the morning. 

After all that activity, you’ll want to ensure that you’re returning to the best hotel in North Vancouver for a good night’s sleep. At the Econo Lodge Inn & Suites North Vancouver, you can choose from a range of room types, and will also enjoy amenities that include a complimentary hot breakfast buffet, free wireless internet, and access to our seasonal outdoor pool and hot tub.

Easy Hikes Hikes in North Vancouver

November in most places tends to have below 0 degrees weather, lots of snow, and makes you want to hibernate inside until Spring comes. Luckily, in Vancouver, that is never the problem because we have mild winters which leaves plenty of room to explore what the west coast has to offer! In North Vancouver, there are so many hikes that you can do even in the autumn despite your fitness level!

Quarry Rock  

Located in Deep Cove, Quarry Rock is definitely a favourite for tourists and for locals. It is the perfect hike no matter what the weather is because you are covered by the dense trees all the way up until you reach the lookout. This hike is definitely perfect because no matter how fit you are (or unfit) you will definitely be able to do this hike! With a bit of an incline at the beginning, you can definitely go for a light stroll or run your way up! The view at the end of the hike is definitely rewarding so make sure to check this hike out!

Lynn Canyon

Whether you are looking just to check out the suspension bridge and the pools or getting lost in the thick trees that make up Lynn Canyon, there is a hike for everyone! You can hike all the way to Lynn Peak if you want to an intense hike that guarantees beautiful views, or you can just walk around and enjoy the beautiful sounds of Lynn Creek.
If you’re looking to explore around North Vancouver and enjoy the beautiful weather of the Pacific North West, then you definitely need to stay at Econo Lodge Inn and Suites in North Vancouver. It’s a family-friend hotel that is close to the outdoors so you can definitely experience all the beautiful sites, parks and weather.
