Where to go in Surrey.. Royal Canadian Circus..

Yesterday we had the opportunity to enjoy the Royal Canadian Circus show! After a long week, I wasn’t planning to do absolutely anything, However, my longtime friend Alejandra was in town and performing on that show, so I had to make an exception and take the kids for their first circus experience, and I’m so glad I did because it was a huge success for the whole family!!

Mia was super excited when she saw the little ponies and was amazed at all the performances! Matias couldn’t stop clapping and even Francisco was dancing lol!

I wasn’t sure if the kids would make it to the end, but the lights, the music, etc. Kept them entertained for the whole 2 hours! ( yeeeeep! And my kids would not stay seat in a restaurant lol! ) if you are staying in town during this long weekend, they are located at the Guilford mall! For a sneak peak of what you’ll see, go to my insta stories!

Where to go in Gastown

Gastown is without a doubt, one of my Favourite neighborhoods of Vancouver! It’s full of restaurants and cool stores, so it is impossible to get bored in there! Today I want to share our MUST stops with you, so next time you are there, you can give them a try!

The Local

Here you can find the best brunch in town, as it is the place that has the best huevos rancheros in town! I promise, as a Mexican, I haven’t even try something like that not even in my own country lol! And their mini smoothies are our kid’s favs!! Hands down to this restaurant and their excellent service!

Steam Clock

The famous Steam clock! Built in 1977, this antique-style clock is powered by steam and whistles, and everyone stops there for a pic! ( as you can see lol )

Canada Place

I’m not sure if this is considered part of Gastown, but it is a must stop for me! It is just something magical about walking there with that amazing view. If you haven’t done the FlyOver Canada, you HAVE TO!

Tacofino

If you want to skip the brunch and go directly to lunch, Tacofino is the place to go! Their fish tacos are my favourite as they remind me of the ones I love from Guadalajara! Yumm Yumm!
