Located on the west coast of British Columbia, Vancouver is known for its stunning natural beauty and vibrant cultural scene. The city is a magnet for travelers from around the world and has hosted landmark events such as the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. It is also of the most ethnically and linguistically diverse cities in North America.
Vancouver has consistently been rated one of the world’s most livable places. A city plan that promotes building density, the use of sustainable energy, and an extensive public transit system preserves its open green space. Unsurprisingly, Vancouver is a haven for bicycling and outdoor enthusiasts.
Summer in Vancouver offers clear sunny days with fabulous views and outdoor festivals. Although some form of precipitation (rain or snow) is bound to fall November-March, don’t let the wet weather discourage you - the landscape remains green and beautiful in every season, and the surrounding mountains receive epic snowfalls. You can experience world-class skiing and snowboarding at Whistler Resort and the North Shore Mountains as late as April.
The temperate climate and diverse geography - encompassing mountains, ocean, forest, and parkland - make a Vancouver a natural destination for outdoor activities like hiking, mountain biking, distance running, and climbing year-round. Explore 1,001 acre Stanley Park, one of the city’s treasures. In early spring, check out the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival, when tree-lined streets become a fairyland of pink petals.
The city is also a foodie paradise, with dining options to fit every budget. Historic Chinatown – one of the largest in North America – is also a popular destination. Enjoy the public market and fine arts scene on Granville Island, a short ferry ride from downtown.
Vancouver offers a range of performing arts, from theater and dance to classical music. There is also a lively folk and jazz scene. Experience great indie bands at nightclubs in the Granville Entertainment District. There is also a strong independent film scene. Referred to as “Hollywood North,” Vancouver is a major production center for movies and television. There’s a good chance your favorite show was filmed here!

On the North Shore – West and North Vancouver – you can sate your appetite for upscale retail shops. Yaletown is Vancouver’s trendy renovated warehouse district.
