Vancouver {5 Places To Visit That You Will LOVE} GIVEAWAY

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Burrard Hotel for IZEA Worldwide. All opinions are 100% mine.V

If you ever visit Vancouver or your in the process of planning a weekend away there. It’s so easy to think to yourself “Where are some cool & good places to check out?” The beautiful part about Vancouver is that there is an endless amount of places to visit and the possibilities are endless. Codi and I had that perfect chance to sneak away for the evening and we were so lucky to get to know some really great places for us to try and of course some that we love to visit everytime we venture into Vancouver. We had a sweet taste of some new places and some go-to’s that I always love to visit!

It’s always such a treat being in great company and having a trip where everything goes right! It’s just magically fell into place for us and we had such a fun time away.

The Burrard 

Our first stop was of course The Burrard. This place is a very fun retro vibe. A converted city motor hotel from 1956. It holds so much fun character and colour. I love it! If you’re ever in need of a low key and relaxing getaway this little slice of heaven is right center of the city giving you that city feel but also giving you a very quiet experience. As soon as you walk into this unique, gorgeous place the rush of the city seems to disappear. The palm trees center court, ping pong table, fireplace and bright beautiful colours is everything that’s needed to make for a chill stay.

Below with easy to get to Elysian coffee and Burgoo Restaurant. It’s the perfect one stop shop for breakfast, lunch and dinner. If your really into it, which of course we were… they have set up the convenience of the bicycles to take for a joyride around the city. Easy to check out and complimentary. It’s super easy to ride a little way down the street and hit up some key city places to visit.

I’m always so happy when we visit that the staff is always so helpful and so nice. Always ready and eager to help wherever they can and however they can. I definitely can’t forget the clean rooms, comfy beds, FREE WIFI, Nespresso Machines in every room and character pictures around the hotel. There’s something fun in every room.

The amenities are literally endless, you can read all of their hotel features here… https://theburrard.com/#amenities

Tacofino Ocho

Tacofino Ocho, this new hotspot was the place to be. So full of awesome energy and friendly staff. And honestly best food ever! Not just saying that because I was very hungry. It honeslty was so delicious! We indulged in a full course meal from Nachos to drinks and desserts. I left with a very full tummy! I loved the location as well, tucked in a quiet street was this totally bustling busy Tacofino. The best!

Medina Cafe

Morning came way to soon, normally does when you spend it kid less! After a deep sleep waking up my first thought is coffee. So off we went to Medina and it was worth every drop. Another really unique and special spot to visit. I loved the old look yet with a very modern twist to it. Serving the best leige-style waffles in the city and menu is full of mediterranean inspired dishes.

Full of healthy items to fill you up and the lattes to fuel you! To me visiting new spots is always a must, but revisiting special places I already adore means a lot to me as well. This trip carried both. And with that I walked away with new favourites to fall in love with. To recommend and to enjoy with the people who are close to me!

Karameller | YALETOWN

For a little afternoon treat we visited Karameller in YaleTown. Love YaleTown. If you ever need a few ideas to visit I would definitely recommend Luxe Spa, House Special, Small Victory, Fine Finds… just to name a few! Karameller is a family favorite so of course we stocked up on these sweet & sour Swedish treats for everyone home. The rows of candy go forever and it’s so nice to choose from recycled bags or jars. Makes for a perfect gift to!

Our Family Day Exploring Destination Cultus Lake

Cultus Lake WaterPark

Well, we kick started this Summer into full gear with a family group waterpark trip to our favourite local spot Cultus Lake Waterpark. It’s one place that we visit every Summer ever since Owen was little and we always leave with smiling faces. This year was a little more special for us because our little Ella could really fall in love with so many rides and truly experience the play areas. She had such a great time exploring the kid area and even getting to ride a few bigger slides herself! Our little girl is growing up.

Our Family Stay At Pacific Sands Beach Front Resort | Tofino

It’s not very often that our family finds the time to go on vacation. With Drew’s hectic work schedule and Owen in school right now it’s almost impossible to find time to sneak away. Somehow the stars aligned and we managed to do it. All thanks to BC Ferries and Pacific Sands Resort. We had the best time the four of us hanging out and just relaxing taking in all the quietness. It truly was exactly what this family needed!…

Fairmont Vancouver for the Santa Claus Parade

Our family visit to the Fairmont Vancouver to watch our first ever Vancouver Santa Claus Parade was by far one of our most memorable family weekends away. To start off I’m not going to get into detail the stress we endured to make it there with rush hour traffic. So lets skip that part! The boys had decided that they also wanted to watch the hockey game at Rogers Arena before hand. The Toronto Maple Leafs (Drew’s favourite team) were in Vancouver for the only time this year to play the Canucks. They had the best time together! It was one of their first games together as well so it was extra special….

Traveling with kids, most of us cringe. It’s a given that it can be stressful, I’ve been there and done that. I have been flying back and forth from Halifax, N.S to British Columbia for the last 10 years. The trips are always just as long as the last! The only difference now is that I fly with my children. Owen is a seasoned flyer he understands and gets it. He loves it! We just recently made a trip from Abbotsford, B.C to Hamilton, Ont thanks to Flair Airlines we got to visit my mom who came from Nova Scotia to visit with us….

Summer Travel With Valco Baby Snap 4

 

SUMMER TRAVEL With VALCO BABY SNAP 4

Things have changed just slightly over here in the past few months. We bought a teeny, tiny commuter car! It’s been kind of great for our family of four, not going to lie. Driving into Vancouver for us and parking a truck was sometimes a little hectic. And not only that, juggling a stroller and fitting something into our squishy back seat was not an option with kids in the back, so if it was a rainy day the stroller got soaked! …
