Deer Lake An around-the-lake walk­ing trail, pic­nic spots and boat rentals make Deer Lake a popular spot to soak in the out­doors—but it’s also home to popular cul­tural stops, in­clud­ing the Burn­aby Art Gallery, the Shad­bolt Cen­tre for the Arts and the Burn­aby Vil­lage Mu­seum (pic­tured above). In sum­mer, it’s also an ideal venue for out­door con­certs, this year fea­tur­ing Ms. Lau­ryn Hill, Bon Iver and Por­tu­gal the Man.

Me­trop­o­lis at Metro­town The ’80s still echo through this mega­mall, but with nearly 400 stores and ser­vices, Me­trop­o­lis at Metro­town is still B.C.’s big­gest shop­ping cen­tre and the third largest in Canada, draw­ing more than 27 mil­lion cus­tomers an­nu­ally. (West Ed­mon­ton Mall and Mis­sis­sauga’s Square One are num­bers one and two.) Burn­aby council just ap­proved ma­jor re­de­vel­op­ment plans for the area, which could mean big change for the 32-year-old shop­ping mecca soon.

Burn­aby Moun­tain No mat­ter which way you travel, it’s quite the hike to get there, but perched atop Burn­aby Moun­tain is Si­mon Fraser Univer­sity’s Arthur Erick­son–de­signed main cam­pus, it­self a cul­tural and ar­chi­tec­tural land­mark that houses the SFU Mu­seum of Ar­chae­ol­ogy and Eth­nol­ogy, the SFU Art Gallery and other wor­thy stops, and the univer­sity o ers myr­iad cour­ses, work­shops and talks. Out­side, the Burn­aby Moun­tain Con­ser­va­tion Area is per­fect for cy­cling, hikes and stun­ning sun­sets at the “Play­ground of the Gods.”
