It’s that time of year again when we celebrate being Canadian, and there’s no better way to do so than to get outdoors. Our Savvy Guide to July is designed to ensure that you do just that (and create some summer memories while you’re at it).
Wear daily moisturizer with SPF
Why? Because UV levels are higher than usual this year due to record ozone loss above the Arctic last winter. It’s also the best way to set an example for our kids.
To Summer Live in Stanley Park July 8 to 10
Why? It’s Vancouver’s 125th birthday celebration, and who doesn’t love a birthday party? With live music, canoe races, family drop-in sports activities, a KidsZone, giant robots and much, much more, this is one party you’ll be talking about for some time.
A good hat
Why? Because fedoras aren’t just for men these days, you know. We like this wide-brimmed one from Tilley.
Create some log cabins out of sticks
Why? Because you can make a whole nature village. Collect the sticks and break them up into even lengths. Stack them in a square for the walls, then lay horizontally for the roof. Decorate with flowers and other nature items.
