 I went to Vancouver in September, all information provided will be biased to September.

Here is some insight into the weather for September

  To picture this if you are not familiar with coastal areas allow me to try and describe this. Vancouver's climate imagine sitting in a cafe it's not hot it's not cold now your outside with fresh air a slight breeze beautiful clouds in the sky the constant circulation of air helps your body maintain a nice temperature you might enjoy a light jacket.

 Something to consider sunscreen or an umbrella if you are concerned with getting sunburned there are times of the day where the sun will pierce through the clouds long enough to burn you.

Want a couple Videos of Vancouver? I got those as well!
