Canada’s biggest city on the west coast, Vancouver is one of North America’s major gateways to Asia, the Canadian interior, and the Arctic Circle. The region is served by no less than four international airports and two floatplane airports in addition to hosting massive cruise ship docks, numerous harbors for private boats, and several ferry terminals. Welcome to Lower Mainland, the nickname locals have given southwestern part of British Columbia dominated by the city of Vancouver.
Accommodation has evolved in the city to suit any kind of traveler regardless of budget. The city is big and busy enough to have every kind of lodging available, and Vancouver’s comprehensive public transportation system of buses and elevated trains makes the city and it’s attractions accessible no matter where you decide to stay.
Vancouver has a global reputation for outdoor recreation, superb scenic views, and a stylish downtown core, but those are the easy answers. Vancouver has a culture that includes a few unique surprises.
Remember to take the seasons into consideration when visiting Vancouver. Summers are warm and sunny, attracting campers and boating enthusiasts. Winter sports are a big draw, while annual events like Cherry Blossom Time and the Winter Solstice celebrations also draw big crowds.
Visited Vancouver, BC in February 2016 and ever since dreaming of coming back here. The fact that you can start the day with a bike ride in Stanley Park, go skiing at Cypress after work by a 30 minute drive from downtown is a dream for adventurers and nature lovers. The people are friendly and very green with their choices. Definitely look
So much to see and do in the city of Vancouver- from wonderful skiing, to water sports, lovely historical events and attractions and so much more.
Family vacation stop over. Our group of 20 just finished an Alaskan Cruise and spent five days here and it was worth it. The food, activities and the beautiful scenery, I just wish we had more time. I will definitely be back .=)
This city is freaking amazing, I don't know where to begin. Depending on how the 2016 elections go I may just move here. Must do: 1) Walk / bike the sea wall. Heck, just walk / bike everywhere 2) Go to Lynn Canyon / Suspension Bridge - just a short and fun ferry ride across the water + one bus ticket (Capsilano suspension bridge is supposed to be awesome too, but I didn't get the chance to go) 3) Spend the extra cash to get a high rise Airbnb with a view. You won't regret it. 4) Go to Granville Island 5) Go paddle boarding on the water 6) In the summer they do yoga at sunset at Kitsilano Beach. Go. You're gonna love your stay. Only downside is that there are no ride sharing services that I am aware of (Lyft, Uber, etc).
