To my Vancouverites,
Have you guys been to the River District near SW Marine Drive? It is pretty easy to get to, as long as you hop on the 100, which takes you down SW Marine Drive.
I went for the second time today, but the first time I was there, it was at night and nowhere near as pretty as today. Today was very hot, reaching 27 degrees in Burnaby where we were. But it made for a nice day to go out for a stroll, and enjoy the parks around there.
I went to Romer’s Burger Bar for the first time, and their burgers were very delicious. They also had a wide selection, with the best sauces. These burgers came a-la-carte, but they had fries that you could order for the entire table to share. We did this, and also got their featured drink, which was a Mango Mint Iced Tea. Having a cool drink on such a hot day felt amazing.
After lunch, we walked along the river. There was not a cloud in the sky and the green green grass around us made for a very picturesque scene.
Doing some research, it turns out that during summer, the River District has a Farmer’s Market every Saturday! It would be interesting to check that out one day!
If you have been to this area, let me know what you thought of it! Or if you have any other recommendations!
Till next time 🙂

Glad you enjoyed Romer’s. It was a recent find for me too – back in March. We also went for a work lunchtime break last week and the tugs were moving the log booms around. Interesting to watch.

Yeah I also found watching the river relaxing (though the water was not the most attractive of colors)! If it wasn’t for the heat, I think I would have enjoyed it even more!
I’ve been to Romer’s too. What a nice looking burger bar. That whole area is night and day compared to a decade ago. Farmer’s markets are pretty rad. Haven’t been to the one down there but will check it out. If you’re into Farmer’s markets, there’s one at Trout Lake. I like it. You might too!
Oooo thanks for the suggestion! Hope I’ll get to check it out this summer!
