Get your holiday shopping done early the Circle Craft Christmas Market

Vancouverites love the November long weekend, not just because of the extra day, but because that’s when the Circle Craft Christmas Market takes over the Vancouver Convention Centre. Give yourself some piece of mind for the holidays by a) getting your holiday shopping done all in one go; and b) support local and Canadian artisans while you do it.

Hit the slopes of the North Shore mountains

Winter-sport enthusiasts can’t come to Vancouver in the winter and not strap on a snowboard or some skis. Mountain sports are also excellent cardio. Cypress MountainGrouse Mountain and Mt Seymour are all short drives or an easy transit ride from the downtown core. Choose your adventure and zip down the mountain with tree and city skyline views.
