My Metro Vancouver Weekend Sightseeing 2018

Vancouver is a beautiful city to live and visit, and so as the neighbour cities in Metro Vancouver. Even though I’ve lived in this area for more than 11 years, there are still loads of places unvisited or needed to be revisited. I decided to be active this year (2018), enjoy these wonderful parks and restaurants, and broaden my view of this city. This is my list of Vancouver weekend sightseeing for the year. I hope this post will inspire you to visit different places in Metro Vancouver.
