Top Things to do in Vancouver

Below are the top six things to do in Vancouver in May.

Treat Mom out to brunch, lunch or dinner for Mother’s Day at any of Metro Vancouver’s best restaurants, and combine it with a family walk at one of Vancouver’s Best Places in Parks and Nature, or just make it a picnic.

Visit Fort Langley – over the May Long Weekend will be one of the best times to visit the fort as they celebrate Queen Victoria’s birthday.

Head over to Victoria on Vancouver Island for the May Long Weekend and take in the Victoria Day Celebrations over there.

Go camping on the May Long Weekend at Alice LakeRolley LakeAlouette LakePorteau Cove or Cultus Lake, but make your reservations months in advance and take your rain gear just in case.

Go for a bike ride, especially during Bike to Work Week towards the end of the month. Also, check out Vancouver’s Best Places for a Jog, Walk or Cyclefor suggestions on leisurely cycling routes.

Typical May Vancouver Weather

Summer is close and the beautiful weather is finally here, at least normally. May is typically one of the nicest months of the year in Vancouver – definitely in the top five.

The days in May are long, the temperature is getting warm, and the sun seems to shine more often than not. It still rains, but less than eight of the other months of the year.

Average high temperatures in May are 16 degrees C (or 61 F) and the lows are in the range of 8 C (or 46 F). It usually only rains about 60 mm (or less than 2.5 inches), which in Vancouver is something to celebrate.

Oddly, the weather almost always seems to be nicer in May than in June – nobody really knows quite why.

Recommended May Activities

Spring flowers are in full bloom around Vancouver in May, and all the trees finally have their leaves. This, plus the increasingly sunny weather and all the snow still usually on the mountain peaks, means that Vancouver is visually at its most spectacular.

May is a great time to check out Vancouver’s beautiful gardens, especially those at Stanley ParkVanDusen GardenQueen Elizabeth Park and Sun Yat-Sen Garden, or any of Vancouver’s sandy beaches or other best places for nature.

The Cleveland Dam and Capilano River Regional Park in North Vancouver can be especially picturesque this time of the year, with all the green everywhere, but still snow-covered peaks on the Lions mountain peaks in the background.

With the snow-melt run off, Shannon Falls (not far from Squamish) and Bridal Veil Falls in the Fraser Valley can also be especially large and spectacular. If it’s a sunny day, then May is a good month to be almost anywhere outside!

Typical June Weather

Summer finally arrives in Vancouver in June, even though the weather is probably just as good or even better in May.

As Vancouver is pretty far north (if you come from anywhere other than Canada), the days are fabulously long, with the sun not setting until after 9 pm. Average June high temperatures are a balmy 19 degrees C (or 66 F), and the lows are close to 11 C (or 52 F).

Statistics suggest it usually only rains about 45 mm (or less than 2 inches) in the month, but many years it feels like way more. Although June’s weather can be a bit unpredictable, it’s still more often than not a fine month to be in Vancouver.

Recommended June Activities

Being a summer month, June is definitely a month to be outside (except for on the rainy days). With the ski season long past and forgotten, Vancouverites focus their attention solidly on outdoor summertime activities. These can include hiking and camping in the region’s various parks, canoeing and kayaking in places like Deep Cove, picnics throughout the region, and hanging out at beaches like English BayKitsilanoJerichoSpanish Banks, Stanley Park(Second and Third Beaches) and Ambleside (in West Vancouver).

Being the last month of the year before schools let out, Vancouver really starts to come alive in June. The region’s night markets are in full swing and all sorts of live entertainment and other events start springing up everywhere (or at least in lots of places).
