Summer solstice in Vancouver -Revel in the longest day of the year in Vancouver. The summer solstice welcomes a little more than 16 hours of straight sunshine, in which you can spend the day gallivanting around the city. As the first hint of sunlight creeps over the horizon, beat the lines at Harmony Donut Shop. After fueling up at the quirky eatery, bike ride through Stanley Park, and don’t miss the annual Rio Tinto Alcan Dragon Boat Festival. There’s no better way to experience the seemingly endless sunshine than by searching for treasures at Front & Company, noshing on the famous Japadogs, and sipping on Spiced Gimurettos at the apothecary-inspired Keefer Bar. Soak up the remaining rays of sunshine before catching the late-night sunset at Cambie Street Bridge just before 9:30 p.m.
