The Big Backyard Adventure List

Are you finding that every weekend is the same? Perhaps it’s time for a change! At The Thirsty Tourist, we consider our personal “Backyard” to be the whole entire world. However, realistically, it is Vancouver, British Columbia. With our 9-5 jobs, we can’t be jetting off on Round The World trips all the time. We believe that every weekend and our vacation days are the best times to unplug from our smart phones, computers and other tiresome routines, so we can get outside and explore.

To make sure you are making the most of your downtime, we’ve put together a list of activities you should be able to do, no matter where your Backyard is. Some of them may require a little traveling and effort, but all of these ideas are feasible within Canada and United States, even if it’s on a smaller scale. Need some ideas? We are here to help.
