The days are longer, the weather is warmer, and there’s so much to do! This is the perfect opportunity to plan a day trip to see the tulips in bloom, or to check out Art Vancouver 2019 for some inspiration. 

Bloom Abbotsford Tulip Festival 

The perfect day trip - located about an hour east outside of downtown Vancouver - the Bloom Abbotsford Tulip Festival is happening daily from April 15 to May 17. Pack a picnic basket and your camera and bring the family for a day outside amid the blooming tulips. The rainbow-coloured fields are an awe inspiring sight, and you can bring some of the magic home by purchasing a bouquet of fresh cut tulips from the on-site flower market. In order to avoid disappointment, buy tickets in advance to guarantee entry! 

Ariana Grande: Sweetener World Tour

One of the most popular musicians is making her way to Vancouver on the Sweetener World Tour. On Saturday, April 27, 2019 Ariana Grande will be performing hits from her critically acclaimed albums at Rogers Arena. As one of the most magnetic and successful pop performers of today, this concert isn’t one to miss. While it’s bound to be a sold out show, there are still some verified resale tickets available and it’s worth trying your luck 24 hours before the event to see if any last-minute tickets have been released. 

Art Vancouver 2019

If you’re in the mood for creative inspiration, this artistic event should be a stop during your stay. The Art Vancouver International Fair is returning to Vancouver Convention Centre for its fifth year presenting the best in contemporary and modern art. The event attracts artists, galleries and exhibitors from over 12 countries and includes a variety of activities such as artist talks, demonstrations, free guided tours and a city-wide Art Gallery Crawl. The event will take place from April 25 to 28, and program details and ticket prices are available on the Art Vancouver website

Whether you’re stopping by for a concert or need a home base between tulips and downtown Vancouver, Holiday Inn and Suites in North Vancouver is the perfect spot. We are located 20 minutes away from the core of Vancouver, while also being accessible to some of Vancouver’s top nature attractions and hiking spots. 

As the weather gets warmer and the travel season gets busier, book your stay to secure your plans!
