Planning the Perfect Long Weekend

The Labour Day weekend is right around the corner. Make the most of your extra time and create a plan for the perfect weekend that’s as busy and bustling—or as restful and relaxing—as you want.


Take a hike

It’s called beautiful British Columbia for a reason, right? Use your extra time this long weekend to explore your own backyard. Plan a hike with friends and family and enjoy the scenic views or opt for a more relaxing (and less strenuous) nature walk around your neighbourhood or local park. Be sure you’re well prepared with plenty of water and don’t skimp on the sun protection like a stylish hat, sunglasses, and of course, extra sunscreen.


Take a dip

Sweating? It’s time for a swim. There’s no better way to cool off in the summer heat than with a dip in the lake, a jump in the pool, or even a run through the sprinkler in the yard. Did we mention it’s also a great excuse to invest in a new swimsuit or pick up a few fun floaties to lounge in?


Take in a flick

There’s never been a better time to go to the movies. Whether you’re feeling nostalgic for Barbie or ready to settle in for Oppenheimer, a trip to the movie theatre (and a large popcorn) is a perfect way to unwind this weekend and put your feet up with friends.


Take a nap

Tired? Take five and catch some shut eye. If relaxing is more your vibe, get extra cozy this long weekend and settle in for an epic nap. Create a calm and quiet space on the couch, stretch out in bed, or even lay in the shade and enjoy the fresh air.


Enjoy your extra time this long weekend, and happy Labour Day!
