Staycation Away in Vancouver with Mazda Canada CX-50

Our family is so unbelievable lucky to live near one of the most cities in Canada, Vancouver British Columbia. Sure it has it’s rainy days, hence the nickname Rain-Couver. But you know once you’re kinda used to the rain everyday, you literally make the most of it and enjoy your day either way. Our most recent staycation to Vancouver gave us some good rainy and hail days. It didn’t leave us bored in the weather department that’s for sure. Racing to the Mazda CX-50, jumping in quickly and turning on the seat warmers, keeping us all comforted from the down pour.

Because we do live so close to Vancouver, we quite often enjoy treating to the kids to a little staycation whenever the timing is right. We love Vancouver and love the energy. We really just love getting away. There are so many things to do while you’re there, rain or shine. I’m sharing with you some of our favourites that we always love to stop by and some that were brand new to us! Being able to drive in style and comfort on the way to each of these things in the brand new Mazda CX-50 was the cherry on top of it all!

Date Night Done Right | DiBeppe The Burrard & FlyOver Canada

Drew and I could hardly remember the last night we had the chance to sneak away overnight alone, with no kids. It’s been at least a couple of years. So when we actually got the chance and lined daycare up to help us , we were beyond excited. Like, countdown excited!

Annnddd the last time we actually went out overnight in Vancouver was defiantly before children so yah, 11 years ago at least.

Needless to say we had a great time. Traffic was great. Timing was perfect. Each little thing we visited was awesome. We couldn’t complain at all. It was the best night away with each other just enjoying our company in peace!

Our first stop…

The Burrard

This was my third time visiting this city’s gem The Burrard Hotel, and of course Drew is always hearing about it. So I was very happy that I could finally take him and show him what it was all about. He loved the vibes and the quietness. The cool retro feel and colours just as much as I do. It’s close enough to downtown and everything around it! Made touring around a breeze.

FlyOver Canada

If there’s one fun thing you visit at Canada Place, well it HAS to be FlyOver Canada. It was one really cool experience. Even kids can enjoy! Owens been and he loved it and honestly was a little jealous he couldn’t come this time. But this trip was just for mom and dad. Inside once you enter, there is a really cool 6 minute light show along the walls of the room. Then you enter into another dark room where you learn all the safety procedures before seating into your seat.

It’s about 10-15 minutes once the ride starts. This specific one takes you through all over Canada (hence flyover Canada) It mists you, and helps you actually feel like you are flying over Canada. With Mountain tops, Canadas beautiful lakes, cities and more.

I can’t even describe it to as beautiful as it really is, it’s defiantly something that you need to go, to really understand the full effect of it. I love it and I’m excited to announce that there will be a new FlyOver Iceland happening in Vancouver August 29th and I’m even more excited that we are giving away two tickets below for you chance to see it!

DiBeppe Restaurant

Then of course we ATE> This is always something that makes it’s way into date night. And the thing I love most about Drew is his love for food and trying new restaurants with me. He never complains and loves the love put into each dish and place we visit.

DiBeppe is the cutest gem located in GasTown. On young Italian restaurant with an old Italian feel. With a whole Italy feel delivering a restaurant and attached cafe. We dug into our meals so fast. Everything from the appetizers to the full pizza and pasta were excellent. Defiantly had dessert, gelato and lattes.

It had such sweet charm and character to it. The staff was so genuinely nice and so helpful because of course we had lots of questions! We just enjoyed the best dinner here and really recommend anyone out on the town looking for a new place to dine at visit here. And would highly suggest reservations if it’s possible. It did get quite busy and for good reason!
