What’s happening in Vancouver this upcoming May?
Lots going on in and around Vancouver this upcoming May especially since our beloved Vancouver Canucks are not in the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, here are some great and fantastic ideas for you to do while visiting Vancouver this spring.
Where do we start? Did we mention that there will be a lot happening in Vancouver this May?
Tourist season is fully underway where the city will soon be filled to the brink of visitors from here, there and everywhere.
From the Vancouver Whitecaps playing in MLS soccer action to concerts to children’s festivals and so much, much more! Make sure to check out our calendar for more details and to see all that’s happening in and around the Sunset Inn.
Colonel Chris Hadfield, known as Canada’s “man on the moon” and the “most famous astronaut since Neil Armstrong” will be speaking at the Orpheum Theatre on Monday May 6th.
Did we forget to mention that there is a Star Wars Day on May 4th as well — “May the Fourth be with You.” Cruise ship season officially gets underway in early May and this promises to be one of the busiest cruise ship seasons in Vancouver yet. You can find a listing of all the cruise ships arriving and departing from Vancouver here.
Davie Street – Also known as the food and restaurant street of Vancouver has a lot of new and exciting restaurants worth trying. From Italian to Chinese to some of the old local favourites! Davie Street is now becoming the “full-time” hub for everything for a foodie’s delight. If you’re craving something in particular, it’s almost a given to find it along Davie and all of it is just a stone’s throw away and a small walking distance away from our hotel.
Here is a small taste of some of our favourite places to grab a bite. You will also find a much larger selection in our Guest Directory found in each of our rooms or alternatively, you can always pop by the Front Desk and our staff will be more than glad to give you some of our ideas:
