Vancouver in early November

Hello we are from Northwestern Ontario. Thinking of going to Vancouver in early November. Is Vancouver worth going to at this time of year? What would be open/

Whats good to see and do at this time?

Thank you

It'll be cold, almost certainly wet and dark early.

Not recommended.

If you come a little early, Halloween or before, you can check out Fright Nights at the local amusement park - rides in the dark, haunted houses, fire dancers, a maze...it's becoming a very popular Vancouver attraction.

It might also be a good time to catch a hockey game, if you're not a huge fan or have a tight budget you can catch a Giants game for a pretty good price.

November is the month that I would prefer to escape Vancouver! Early November may be ok, but.....Everything will be open, but not much happening that is unique. December would be better with carol ship cruises and Christmas stuff, but November is a big, ugly whole of cold, dark damp!

I agree with other posters... November and February are probably the worst for weather here. In fact, I'm looking to book a trip to Hawaii for November so that I can escape a week of the dreariness. That said, it depends on what you want to do. Museums, shopping, the aquarium, etc. will all be open. But don't expect a pleasant walk around Stanley Park...
