Get out and explore a little.

In this series of the 30 Best Patios in the Lower Mainland I’ve had the opportunity to explore, explore and explore some often forgotten and less written about parts of our city. It reminds me that there is more to Vancouver than just Vancouver. When my friends at Shaw TV’s The Rush with Fiona Forbes found out what I was doing they asked if I’d come on the show and share with their viewers some of the hidden patio gems around Vancouver. Of course I said yes and with my buddy Steven Schelling we will be highlight 4 regions and their awesome patios. First up are the must visit patios in New Westminster and Burnaby. Bet you didn’t think there’d be some great patios there did you.
