Vancouver is one of the world's premiere and most beautiful city destinations. It is a young, hip and friendly coastal city which is surrounded by wild and spectacular scenery with ocean in the foreground and a backdrop of incredible snowcapped mountains. Vancouver was recently listed as one of the top 50 places of a lifetime in the world by National Geographic Traveler and a top city in Lonely Planet's 'Best in Travel 2010' list! Readers of Conde Nast Traveler magazine have also recently voted Vancouver as the "Best City in the Americas". There isn't a city in the world quite like Vancouver!
Vancouver is a warm and welcoming city, a multicultural metropolis that combines cosmopolitan chic and world class fascilities with a laid back fun filled vibe. Explore the hip streets of artsy Granville Island, cool Yaletown, heritage rich Gastown or relaxed Kitsilano. Contemporary museums and attractions are ripe for the picking, check out the Capilano Suspension Bridge, one of the highest and longest on earth - or visit the Treetops Adventure.
Take a walk on the wild side as Vancouver is also a mecca for those who want an urban adventure with an outdoor twist. The city is an all-season outdoor paradise offering activities- on land, on water and in the mountains - and wildlife opportunities. Vancouver is well-known for its lively outdoor spirit and visitors can engage in nearly every imaginable pursuit. Where else in the world, and in a city, can visitors go snow-shoeing at the top of a mountain, hike through lush temperate rainforests, kayak coastal coves and shorelines, cycle picturesque seawall paths and zipline.
If a city can be judged by it's culture and diversity, Vancouver is able to claim top honors. No less than a dozen different neighborhoods invite locals and visitors to walk the colourful footpaths and soak up a diverse range of urban enclaves with their roots coming from many different ways of life and cultures. The bonus for travellers is so many of the boroughs of Vancouver are so close together, so that it possible to experience the many flavours of the city in a relatively short space of time.
