Things to do This Fall in Vancouver

The leaves are falling and autumn is calling, and it is our favourite time of year at Vancouver Extended Stay!  Many Vancouverites know best, this is the perfect time of year to get out and explore. If you are visiting, let us help you kick off the season with a roundup of our favourite October activities throughout the lower mainland.

Pumpkin Patch
Our favourite pumpkin patches are officially open for the season! Fun for the whole family, get in the Halloween spirit by picking your perfect pumpkin, visiting the farm animals, and finishing your trip with a tractor-pulled hayride. Check out Southlands Heritage Farm or Richmond Country Farms for tickets and availability.


Hallowed Eves at Playland

Every October, Playland transforms into a Halloween-themed experience, including thrill rides, creepy decor, spooky characters, and live performances! Due to restrictions, the haunted houses will not be operating this year, but there are still a ton of rides to get spooked on. Opening October 8th, get your tickets here today!
