Planning a staycation for this Victoria Day Long Weekend? Don’t worry – You can still get out of the city, soak up B.C.’s natural splendours and be home in time for dinner.
Here are five long weekend daytrip ideas. All of these options are within a 90-minute drive of downtown Vancouver and emphasize the great outdoors. Got more ideas? Please comment below.
- Whytecliff Park: This 15-hectare waterfront park in Horseshoe Bay is only 30-45 minutes from the concrete jungles of downtown Vancouver. It features a small, sandy beach, cliffs plunging dramatically to the brisk waters of Howe Sound and even a little island you can swim to that sits just offshore. For families, there’s a large grassy picnic area with changing rooms.
