The city of Burnaby isn't usually top of mind when it comes to the most exciting places to stay when in British Columbia—but it should be. This growing city has a major shopping center, it's an escape from the energy of the downtown core, and it has one of the most underrated music venues in the lower mainland. 

Deer Lake Park is a hidden gem known only to avid concert-goers and those who live in Burnaby. The concert stage is set to a stunning backdrop of trees, mountains, and a beautiful lake. The peaceful and serene venue offers a natural amphitheatre as the sound wondrously echoes above the water.
