How to Pack for a Winter Weekend in the Pacific Northwest

In a few weeks, Berty and I are taking a trip to Vancouver, BC! We are excited to explore around the city as well as the surrounding areas. Since we’ve only been to Vancouver a few times we want to check out some stops along the way, including cheesy ones like Capilano Bridge, maybe a trip out to Stanley Park, and a search for the best breakfast and brunch spots! (any suggestions??) Since I plan everything ahead of time, I’m already sorting *and pinning* what I want to bring with us on this short weekend excursion. I was inspired to create a packing list for anyone who was traveling to the Pacific Northwest during a winter weekend, whether it be your first time or 50th. This list is for urban adventurers who want to explore in and out of the city. Enjoy!

yesterday, we went to have a picnic next to a frozen waterfall. #optoutside
