Planet Lazer Richmond

On the last day before school started up again, my friends and I decided that to get out all of our nervous energy we were going to go play laser tag. Now, all of us live in Vancouver and the closest place is in Richmond, it’s called Planet Lazer. To get there we collectively took transit which took a bus, a sky train and then two other buses. Now, the place in Richmond is a large plot of land with several big recreation activity buildings you can try. They have swimming, trampolines, a movie theater and of course, laser tag. […]

6Pack Beach

Lets face it Vancouver is known as Raincouver. It rains so much during the winter that there is not a lot of activities you can go do outside without getting wet. But Vancouver has this place where you can get a small taste of feeling like you or outside on a beach. There is this place called 6Pack Beach, located in Richmond, and yes it is an indoor beach. I first heard of this place through my church group. The youth were trying to organize an outing and they told us we were going to play indoor volleyball but to […]

Zone Bowling/Big River Restaurant

Being a girl from the suburbs my friends and I have a few typical hang out spots in Coquitlam that we absolutely love and find to be reasonable in price. One of the places we love to go to is Zone Bowling. Zone bowling is located right beside the movie theatres, and it is one of the largest bowling alleys. They also have a second location in Richmond so if you do not want to trek all the way to Coquitlam you can go to Richmond instead. The reason why we love going bowling there is not only because bowling […]

Burnaby Village Museum

The first full week of my daughter’s summer vacation has ended and it was a busy one.  I took care of her and one of her friends during the week, and we trekked to various activities around the city. The day we chose to go to the Burnaby Village Museum was the only rainy day all week.  The rain didn’t bother us, as most of the exhibits were indoors.  The museum is celebrating its 40th Anniversary this year, so gate admission is free. The Burnaby Village Museum is meant to give visitors an idea of what life was like in […]
