Vancouver is the most visitor-friendly place in the whole of Canada. It’s long been called the most beautiful city and the best place of all to live because of all the amenities and the climate. Come prepared when you travel in Canada to Vancouver, your days and nights are going to be very, very busy.
Where else can you experience the great outdoors while in the middle of a thriving metropolis? A combination of fun and sophistication, commerce and nature, this can only be found in Vancouver.
Eco-travelers would be especially interested in this city as they pride themselves in being one of the most green. As an example, take a look at their newest Harborside Convention Center, constructed in a fully green manner and flaunting the fact with a green expanse of grass on its roof.
And the harbor is a great place to just sit back and watch the city go by, too. There are sea planes landing and departing continuously, with numerous boats and ships bringing in people and cargo or just trolling around.
As it has welcomed many cultures that now call this city home, you will find just about anything here that you desire and maybe some things you never even thought about as well! Unique shops, unusual food, diverse celebrations, these are what makes up Vancouver.
Just within the city itself, you’ll be able to take a dip either in English Bay or on Second Beach, take a kayak up False Creek, or ride magnificent horses in Southlands. It’s like being in the country, except you’re not. A mere twenty minutes takes you up to North Shore mountains, where there are hiking and biking trails open in the summer and ski trails available in the winter.
If skiing is what you love, then you are in luck. Whistler is only about one hundred twenty kilometers away and reachable by plane or by train. The site of many ski resorts and also of some of the games of the 2010 Winter Olympics, it’s a side-trip that should not be missed.
