One of the nicest places to go for some Christmas atmosphere in Downtown Vancouver has to be the Christmas Market at the Queen Elizabeth Plaza next to the Playhouse. Open from Nov 22 - Dec 24th from 11am to 9pm, you can drop in for a tasty lunch, or grab some lovely warm mulled wine with friends after work. Reminiscent of traditional holiday markets in Europe, the plaza comes alive with wooden cottages filled with European ornaments and delicacies. The centrepiece is a huge Christmas Tree perfect for sitting around and taking some festive photos.
Once you buy one entrance, register the season pass they provide and you can come and go as many times as you like. So make the most of it! Grab some friends and make a night of it. See you there!
