VanDusen Botanical Gardens Festival of Lights
It's not Christmas in Vancouver until you've attended the Festival Of Lights at VanDusen Botanical Gardens. Walk along the network of pathways found within the garden grounds and explore the magical multi-colored twinkling creations. The lights surrounding the pond area are coordinated to dance along to musical numbers that illuminate the setting even more. The likes of Transiberian Orchestra fills the crisp winter air while you sip on hot chocolate and munch on roasted chestnuts - be sure to leave room for a maple flavored waffle provided by one of the best seasonal food trucks in Vancouver - Dr. Waffles!
The Shaughnessy Restaurant inside is the perfect venue to warm up and unwind after doing the tour and the gift shop across the hall gives you the opportunity to pick up some unique gifts and/or stocking stuffers for loved ones, yourself included.
Make the Festival Of Lights at VanDusen Botanical Gardens a long standing tradition for your Christmas in Vancouver.
