One of my favourite weekend adventures is heading out to Steveston, a cute historic fishing town near the river, and a quick 30 minute drive from Vancouver. The one or two streets of the town are fun to wander, but my favourite thing to do there is to bike the dyke trail and get fish and chips!
The dyke trail is flat (my kind of biking!) and runs alongside some gorgeous houses (I love looking at real estate!) and is near the airport so there’s tons of planes taking off and landing to watch (reminds me of childhood outings with my dad to the airport to watch the planes take off). There’s so much to look at that you almost forget you’re biking! You can bike as far as you’d like, and then turn around and come back to the park where there’s a little fish and chips stand.
J and I like to bring a few beers and a blanket, grab our fish and chips, and relax on the grass. A perfect Sunday afternoon!
