Here on Vancouver’s North Shore, we love Spring! In fact, some might argue that this is our favourite season! The cherry blossoms start to come out, the temperatures warm up and sure, it might rain a little in the Spring, but nothing on the North Shore is stopped by a little rain! In fact, there’s so much to do this Spring, on Vancouver’s North Shore, that you’re not even going to notice the weather!

PLAY

Spring Break

Spring Break kicks off on March 14, and for kids this is the start of 2 weeks of freedom and fun. To keep them entertained (and to keep parents sane) there are lots of cool activities taking place around the region. Whether you live on the North Shore and plan to enjoy a “stay-cation”, or if you’re visiting from out of town, there is something for everyone! Click here for a great write-up of all the fun things scheduled for Spring Break.

Snowshoeing | Mt Seymour

Fun in the Snow

How about a little fun in the snow? All 3 of our local ski hills, Grouse Mountain, Mt Seymour and Cypress Mountain, usually stay open well into April, which means that you are only ever about 20 minutes away from an afternoon of fun in the snow! Now you just need to pick your activity: skiing or snowboarding, snowshoeing, tubing or sliding.

EXPLORE

North Shore Art Crawl

Celebrating the creative energy of local artists and striving to make art approachable and accessible to all, the North Shore Art Crawl is celebrating it’s fifth year. Established in 2011 by two North Shore artists, Norman Vipond and Sandrine Pelissier, ‘The Crawl was a success from the get go with 100 artists displaying their work in 40 different venues across the North Shore. This year the event takes place on March 5 and 6, with over 250 artists and 72 venues spread across the North Shore from Deep Cove to Lions Bay.

Geo-Caching

Are you into geocaching? This modern day treasure hunting is fast becoming a popular way to explore new areas. North Vancouver’s Arts Office has combined the thrill of the hunt with a celebration of public art with their series of Public Art caches. There are currently 11 active caches hidden in areas across the North Shore, surrounded by wonderful examples of public art. All you need is a GPS (the one on your phone works just fine), access to the geocaching website for the coordinates and clues and swag for trading.

Easter egg hunt

CELEBRATE

The Easter Bunny hops into town on the last weekend of March this year and if you’re visiting or simply don’t want to channel your inner Easter Bunny, the North Shore has your Easter weekend activity needs covered! From epic Easter egg hunts and brunches to the baby bunnies and visits with the bunny himself, there is something for the kid in all of us!

North Vancouver Craft Breweries

Vancouver’s North Shore is home to a growing number of craft breweries, and many of them are releasing their Spring Seasonals, which can only mean that it’s time for a pub-crawl! Start your tour (with a designated driver of course) at Deep Cove Brewers & Distillers and head west, with stops at Bridge Brewing, Green Leaf Brewery and Black Kettle Brewing. Click here for more information about craft breweries on Vancouver’s North Shore, and stayed tuned for news on when the tasting room for the newest addition to the craft beer scene, Hearthstone Brewing, will open (rumors are early 2016).
