As they say, March roars in like a lion, and you will definitely hear the crowd roar at the annual Canada Sevens Tournament as the month kicks off. Next, is what to do for spring break? Thankfully, Vancouver is never short of activities and March 2023 is no exception. One of the glorious advantages of living on the West Coast is the ability to enjoy warm weather, while also hitting the slopes. Add to that incredible deals on downtown Vancouver accommodation and various other activities, there should be numerous answers to the dreaded spring break question!
1) CANADA SEVENS
The Canada Sevens rugby tournament is hosted at BC Place Stadium from March 3rd-5th, 2023. The event features 28 of the world’s top men’s and women’s sevens teams.

3) VANCOUVER AQUARIUM
Featuring over 60,000 aquatic creatures, from sea lions and otters to penguins and jellyfish, and everything under the water and in between, the Vancouver Aquarium is the perfect place to spend a day. A 4D experience theater immerses you in the action, while informative and entertaining exhibits and shows provide lots of great information about conservation and nature. Tickets are available on the aquarium website.
4) STANLEY PARK
A 405-hectare sprawling landscape of pristine beauty nestled in the heart of the city leaves a lot of ground to explore at Stanley Park. 500,000 cedar, fir, and hemlock trees round out the park along with various other vegetation and wildlife. A pool, waterpark, miniature railway, and much more make Stanley Park a great place to visit for those looking to enjoy a slice of Canadiana on a budget.
5) SCIENCE WORLD
Built in 1986, Science World in Vancouver is one of the most recognizable structures on the coast. The ‘ball’ is home to an OMNIMAX theater, interactive science displays, and activities for all ages. As Science World is primarily indoors, it’s a great place to visit on a rainy day. Learn more.
6) VANCOUVER PUBLIC LIBRARY
Featured in numerous movies, there’s more to the Vancouver Public Library than just books (although it has those too). The coliseum-shaped building is an architectural marvel, featuring high ceilings and multiple floors. It’s always easy to find a quiet place and nestle down with a good book, or venture skywards and explore the rooftop garden. The library also runs several events and activities during spring break.
