JUL 1 Canada Day kicks off festivities across the city, many of them glorious and free. Swing over to Granville Island for live music courtesy of the Vancouver International Jazz Festival (page 73), or to Canada Place, where hopeful percussionists attempt to set a new Guinness World Record for most nationalities in a drum circle. Stick around for crowd-pleasing concerts and a fireworks finale. Need Canuck swag? Indigo (page 38) is a treasure trove of True North–themed souvenirs.
