Girls Weekend in Vancouver



Description:

Vancouver is one of those cities that is bursting with energy, life and things to do and is a perfect city to escape the grind. Every now and then, the girls need to pack their over sized suitcase, put on some heels and head out of town for a weekend with girlfriends. Vancouver has everything from drool-worthy shopping, quaint cafes to sit around chatting for hours in, restaurants with naughty nosh and clubs to dance the night away in.

Day 1 - Vancouver


After a hard work week, there's nothing better than arriving to a vibrant city and knowing that a jam packed weekend of entertainment awaits you. Check in to your hotel, the Georgian Court, and make your way up to the ladies only floor. Yes, this is a hotel that has an entire floor dedicated to estrogen. Forgot your flat iron? No problem, they've got you covered. After getting ready, head to Hapa Izkaya for a lively meal. They have many locations around Vancouver, Yaletown and Robson Street being their most popular. After you have filled your bellies with tasty Japanese bites, the Morrissey on Granville is a good spot to catch an attractive crowd, good music and have a few low key nights. You're going to need your energy for tomorrow, so take it easy on Friday and prepare for the rest of the weekend.

Day 2 - Vancouver


Good Morning, gals! Put on those walking shoes and make your way over to Medina. Fortunately, it's only about a three minute stroll from your hotel. Try and get there early, as it's not uncommon for a line up to be waiting along the sidewalk. Go inside and add your name to the list if that is the case. Whether you choose eggs, waffles or any of the scrumptious menu items, you will leave satisfied.

On a lovely sunny afternoon, Hastings Racecourse is the perfect spot to catch some sun, horse races and wear a nice frock. Be ladies what lunch and grab a hot dog and ice cold drink from the pavilion.

After spending some time there, you may want to go back to your hotel room to get ready for the night. When you're ready, head over to Yaletown and stroll around. There are many tempting shops, and who knows, you may find something new to wear that night.

For dinner head to Rodney's Oyster House in Yaletown. The food, waiters and atmosphere are all very much worth your visit. The fun atmosphere sets the perfect beginning to a night of trouble.

After eating too many oysters and crab cakes, catch a cab and make your way down to Gastown and step into Shine to dance the night away.

Day 3 - Vancouver


After a late night out, you may be feeling a little sleepy and not in the mood for anything too high energy. The Naam in Kitsilano is a great breakfast spot to soak up any restlessness with their delicious vegetarian and vegan plates. Spanish Banks is just a quick ride away and if it's a sunny day, make sure to pack your beach towel and suntan lotion.

Otherwise, head back Downtown and do some retail therapy on Robson Street. It is a girls weekend afterall. After you have exhausted yourself trying on shoes and clothes, walk down to Yaletown (where you can do more retail therapy if you like) and stop by Sciué for some of their crave-worthy thin crust pizza, The smoked salmon or boccocini pizzas are must try's!
