How to Do March Break in Vancouver

Spending March Break in the City

March Break Activities in Vancouver

With our loonie in the tank, staying in Vancouver is a great way to stay afloat this March Break. It will be easy to keep boredom at bay with these fabulous activities right here in YVR.

Hit the Slopes
Skiing on local mountains is a rite of passage for BC residents. Choose from Grouse Mountain, Cypress Mountain, and Mount Seymour and spend a day shredding on our substantial snow base. Grouse and Seymour also offer snow tubing, while Cypress offers over 50 km of cross country trails besides its downhill skiing, and all three mountains offer snow shoe trails. If you have a hankering for a road trip, make a day of it and head to Whistler Blackcomb, a mere hour and a half in the car will take you to the best ski terrain in North America. Go play in the snow.

Lights, Camera, Action
If you have a budding actor on your hands or a dedicated fan of ABC’s hit television series Once Upon a Time, check out YVR Shoots for filming times and locations. Filmed in Steveston, spend a day watching the filming and then grab fish and chips at Pajos while you’re there (the wharf location is open 11 am-4 pm, weather permitting). Check the website for updated filming information, usually released a couple of days in advance. 

The fun doesn't stop there. Keep clicking to see the rest of our fave March Break Activities in Vancouver.
