It will get colder in the fall, but that’s exactly what art museums are made for. Vancouver Art Gallery’s 10,000-piece permanent holdings include works from historical and contemporary Vancouver artists and other contemporary art leaders, making a trip here a welcome cultural change from sunbathing at Kits Beach. Plus, the museum boasts one of the city’s top cafés, and chatting with friends over coffee is one fall activity you just have to partake in.
