Dream Vancouver summer day: Go get waffles with the kids as soon as Scandilicious opens up at 7 a.m. Go for a walk on Commercial Drive and let the kids run around at Grandview Park. Go home and nap while the kids magically entertain themselves. Go for lunch at the Fish Counter, then let the kids run around in the waterpark at David Livingstone Park. Go home and nap while the kids magically entertain themselves. Pack a picnic and set up shop at English Bay. Be periodically visited by most treasured friends and family. Grandparents take my kids home while my wife and I go for dinner at La Quercia. Go see Radiohead play at the Vogue. Have a nightcap at the Billy Bishop Legion. Sleep for 10 straight hours with no interruptions.
Best summery Vancouver thing I’ve never done: I think it would be great to do an entire day of walking along the seawall. Start at Spanish Banks, work your way to Science World, back around Stanley Park and all the way east toward New Brighton Pool. Google Maps says it’s about six-and-a-half hours on foot, so build in time to stop for meals and coffees. Sounds like a pretty amazing day.
