During the holidays, VanDusen Botanical Garden is a pretty magical spot, and one of the best places to see holiday lights in Vancouver. Earlier this week, I took two kids to the garden. They loved the Lego display, Gingerbread Wood characters, and decorated trees. And though we missed Santa, the lights choreographed to music made up for it.
But you'll have to hurry to catch the garden in its holiday finest. The Festival of Lights is only on through New Year's Day -- next Tuesday!
