When to go
Vancouver is arguably most famous for being the wettest city in Canada. However, unlike other cities, it doesn't get that cold in winter and only experiences small amounts of snow. The best time to visit is during the summer months, when the weather warms up considerably. The months of June, July and August are also the driest, but be sure to pack for light rain and chilly breezes, especially if you're heading up to the mountains.
