It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Vancouver

Peak Season: June to September

Book well in advance for accommodations and popular restaurants, and be prepared to get in line for top attractions. Summer is the perfect time to explore; Pacific breezes keep temperatures tempting, although the waters are less balmy.

Off Season: October to December

Skyscrapers, Christmas lights, and ski slopes twinkle in the shorter, darker days, when temperatures inch down to the low 30s. December events keep the city surprisingly popular with visitors.

Sweet Spot: January to May

Take advantage of lighter crowds to see museums and galleries and to sample Vancouver’s multicultural menu offerings. Note though that December is Vancouver’s wettest month, with the other winter months close behind.
