buy wine

Hi

What are things to do for a 17 year old in Vancouver? He doesn't seem to be interested in visiting neighborhoods like Gastown, museums or Parks?

Thanks

Are your dates still 18th July to 8th August?

What kind of things is he interested in? What does he like to see and do when visiting a new place? I would think a 17 year old could explore the Things to Do in the top green bar, make 3-4 selections and get feedback here on the forum?

Playland at the PNE is open. He can check to see if that means weekends only or daily, now that school is out.

There is ziplining up Grouse. Admission to take the gondola up, then the cost of the rude.

Oops the header was not changed from my previous post.

The weather has been raining since 2 days and not helping. I was told it's not worth it to go up to grouse mountain or whistler in this weather

Maher_DxB, what does your 17 year old want to do? What has he expressed interest in?

Definitely get HIM to cruise the things to do and pick out activities and make decisions for himself. Otherwise, any choice you make could be doomed "lame" before it even starts.
