Your international passport may be collecting dust, but luckily, Vancouver provides many opportunities for you to be a local tourist!
Events & Adventures, the social club for singles in the city, is hosting a Local Passport Challenge, in which their members will be asked to participate in challenges that will take singles to many different parts of the city and get them participating in many different adventurous activities.
As shown by a few of the following challenge ideas, the Local Passport Challenge will present a great way for Vancouver singles to explore the city, support local businesses, AND connect with other singles!
Order from your local restaurants
Dine in by getting pickup or delivery from your favourite neighbourhood restaurants and cafes. Or better yet, choose a dish from a cuisine that you’ve yet to experience.
You can also shop at your favourite local groceries, bakeries, liquor stores, and other food and drink suppliers to get fresh, locally-sourced ingredients for cooking, baking, and cocktail making at home.
Every month, Events & Adventures hosts virtual cooking workshops and dinner and drink socials for singles to get together. Ordering take-out is a great opportunity to try new dishes while supporting local restaurants as you bond with other singles over your shared love of food and drink.

Visit the local ski hills
We’re lucky to live in a city where we’re just a quick drive away from amazing ski mountains such as Cypress, Seymour, and Grouse.
As the ski season starts to wind down, head over to these Vancouver slopes for skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and other snow sports to get some exercise and have some fun with other singles from the Events & Adventures community who love winter activities!
Take a stroll at your local parks
Metro Vancouver is filled with a vast amount of green spaces that are perfect for walking, running, cycling, and relaxing.
This spring, you can do the loop along the Stanley Park seawall for scenic views of the trees, ocean, and mountains beyond. Or, venture to the forest within the city at Pacific Spirit Regional Park, which is also dog-friendly for those who want to take their furry friend with them.
It’s the perfect time to get some fresh air and go on a socially-distanced stroll or ride with Events & Adventures members at one of the city’s many parks!

Volunteer at your local food bank
More than ever, families and individuals within our city are in need of the support of the community.
By volunteering your time with non-profit organizations such as the Greater Vancouver Food Bank (GVFB), you can help these important programs keep the distribution of food and other essentials going for those in need.
It’s a great way to give back and have quality human interaction with the community and other volunteers, and not to mention a worthy activity for singles to do together. In fact, Events & Adventures and their members have been proud supporters and volunteers of GVFB — especially over the past year.
Sign up for a virtual social
On days when you can’t get out, why not socialize at home?
All year long, Events & Adventures hosts several fun online events, ranging from trivia nights and movie nights to wine and whiskey tastings and creative arts and crafts workshops, with other Vancouver singles.
For a guaranteed good time, members can join in on games like What Do You Meme, Catan, and the latest craze, Among Us.
This March, join in on the exciting activities and socials Events & Adventures has planned for their members as part of the Local Passport Challenge — designed to connect Vancouver singles to their city and to one another.
