Vancouver is known for its natural surroundings. Between the city’s proximity to mountains, the rainforest, the oceans and all those natural habitats, we’re about as close to nature as an urban centre can be.

But a new exhibit at the Museum of Vancouver challenges some of our perceptions about that connection. By looking at the city’s history through a non-human historical lens, Rewilding Vancouver asks just how much European settlement has changed the area, what we’ve lost and what we’ve gained – and what the future might hold.

Sure, beach time is what summer in Vancouver is all about. But if you happen find your brain turning to mush, your creative drive in need of inspiration, or rain on the horizon, duck inside and check out these cool, relatively new summer exhibits at Vancouver museums and attractions.

5 Best Summer Exhibits at Vancouver Museums and Attractions

1) Foncie’s Fotos at Museum of Vancouver, through January 2014
Foncie Pulice, Vancouver’s most prolific and beloved street photographer, took about 15 million photos of Vancouver residents from the 1930s to the 1970s shooting in hotspots along Granville Street and Hastings Street. Museum of Vancouver is offering a rare chance to peek back into Vancouver urban history at their new exhibit of his work: Foncie’s Fotos: Man on the Street.

2) Grand Hotel at the Vancouver Art Gallery, through September 15, 2013
Hotels are a place where it seems like anything can happen. Rock stars, beat poets and actors take up residence in hotels. Hotels symbolize so many things, from seedy to decadent, including easy wish-fulfillment, escape and purgatory. The Vancouver Art Gallery captures these complexities in their fantastic new exhibit: Grand Hotel: Redesigning Modern Life.

3) Science of Sexuality at Science World, through September 2, 2013
From Remy’s coverage: Think Science World is just about sprockets and pulleys, creepy crawlies and whimsical gadgets? Think again. Pushing the boundaries of science education, Science World has just unveiled a provocative new exhibit on the Science of Sexuality (running through Sept. 2).  The self-guided display explores the stages of human sexual development, all the way from conception to first love and beyond.

Dating in Vancouver: Westside Wander

Many of my friends complain about the lack of a singles scene in Vancouver. In fact, when Vancouver Magazine published an article about dating here, my internet was set aflame with comments, emails, Facebook posts, tweets and news stories about the controversial article entitled, “Do Vancouver Men Suck?” The January 2012 article sent many single Vancouverites into a period of navel gazing (my-single-self-at-the-time included). Why was it so hard to meet and keep the interest of potential mates in this city?

It all boils down to actually getting out there and doing things. If your excuse for not clicking on that cute person’s OK Cupid profile is a lack of dating activities in Vancouver, then you’re mistaken.

Our city is bestowed with many date-tastic neighborhoods and activities. Vancouver’s Westside contains endless day or night courtship possibilities. Whether you like beach walks or fine dining, biology explained or sex explored, cool patios or warm barstools, the Westside offers up a range of naughty, nice or nature-inspired possibilities.
