Rainy Days in Vancouver

Rainy Weather Doesn’t Stop Vancouverites, Don’t Let it Stop You!

Fall has arrived and winter is not far behind, shorter days and rainy weather in Vancouver means it’s time take it indoors to get active, learn a thing or two and take in some exceptional exhibits at some of our best attractions.


Families should check out Science World at Telus World of Science, for a hands-on experience where interactive displays let kids and grown-ups explore the wonder of science.  Burn a little more energy when you visit the BC Sports Hall of Fame at BC Place Stadium, dynamic exhibits tell the history of sport, and BC’s sport heroes while the participation zone lets everyone test their athletic abilities.  Add a Behind the Scenes Tour of BC Place for a truly unique experience. Book these two great family attractions now and save 20% on your admissions, add a visit to the Beaty Biodiversity Museum at UBC, BC’s only natural history museum housing over 2.1 million specimens to discover, and save 25% on each attraction.

Horticulture Training at the Garden

With around 6000 taxa of plants distributed over 10 different gardens, UBC Botanical Garden is a bona fide source of biodiversity in Vancouver. Helping maintain it is a small army of horticulturists that regularly incorporate new members into their ranks, some of whom come from the Garden’s Horticulture Training Program (HTP). Launched in 2012, it is the only full-time program of its kind in Metro Vancouver north of the Fraser River, and aims to teach the skills necessary to enter the field of horticulture through eight months of instruction, from late summer to spring.
