Are you a snowbird with nowhere to go this winter due to the pandemic? Then consider Vancouver. Not only is it in Canada, which means you still have access to healthcare, but it also happens to have a milder climate than any other part of the country. Beyond the climate, the city is filled with art, culture, quality dining, and natural beauty at every turn. Keep reading to discover a few reasons why you should make Vancouver your home base this winter.
What attracts many snowbirds to Vancouver is its mild climate. It has the warmest winter climate of anywhere in Canada. It is not often that the city sees snow, so if you’re someone that detests harsh winter weather, Vancouver is for you. In addition, the average daily temperature between December and February is around 7 degrees (much more comfortable than the -20 degrees that is so common in provinces like Manitoba and Saskatchewan). In fact, the weather in Vancouver is so mild you won't even need to bring your heavy duty winter coat or snow boots with you.
It is well known that Vancouver is filled with excellent dining options. From fine dining to take out or delivery, there are so many spots for foodies. A few spots we recommend include Forage, a local farm-to-table restaurant, Cardero’s for a beautiful waterfront setting and fresh seafood, and Jam Cafe for a delectable brunch.
Last but not least, Vancouver is a vibrant city filled with all kinds of exciting attractions and activities. If you’re into arts and culture, then check out the latest exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery. If you prefer spending time outdoors, you can still do that owing to the milder weather. Go for a run or bike ride around Stanley Park or even for a winter walk along one of the city’s many beaches. Alternatively, if you’re into skiing or snowboarding, you’re surrounded by mountains in Vancouver.
If you’re a snowbird who is currently stranded, then we recommend making Vancouver your home base this winter. Book your stay at the Holiday Inn & Suites North Vancouver, the perfect jumping off point for exploring this beautiful Canadian city, while escaping the harsh and snowy conditions of most other provinces.
