The Best Cherry Blossom Viewing Spots Near Vancouver Extended Stay

Spring is in full bloom, and in Vancouver, that means one thing: it’s cherry blossom season! 

Vancouver is renowned for the stunning display of pink and white blooms that transform the city streets, park, and gardens every year. As Vancouverites, we know that Spring can also bring lots of rain showers and plenty of gloomy days. The cherry blossoms scattered throughout the city light up the streets even on the rainiest days. So, whether you’re a local or you’re staying with us at Vancouver Extended Stay, get your camera ready – here are some of the best places to view cherry blossoms in Vancouver this spring:

The West End – Vancouver’s West End is home to plenty of breathtaking views year round — the mountains, the ocean, and at this time of year, thousands of cherry blossoms! With Stanley Park having over 1,000 cherry blossoms alone, this area is the perfect place to get your cherry blossom photo-op. Whether you are taking a leisurely stroll along Beach Avenue, or a bike-ride in Stanley Park, the West End is the best end for cherry blossom viewing.
