Vancouver summary

Swimming in the ocean, head in the clouds, Vancouver is nestled in the slopes of the surrounding Coast Mountain Range. While this sea-level port city is known for its temperate climate, the surrounding snow-covered slopes are the venues for winter sports and breathtaking views of the city twinkling below. Vancouver is one of the few places in the world where you can ski in the morning and sail in the afternoon. Named the world's "Most Liveable City" by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) in 2005 and a Top 100 World Destination pick in Trip Advisor's 2008 Traveller's Choice Awards, Vancouver offers travellers both outstanding opportunities for outdoor adventure and the sophisticated amenities of a world-class city.

Stanley Park

If you only do one thing in the city, cycle or stroll along the Stanley Park seawall, a paved 10-km loop with every moment of it privy to magnificent mountain, ocean, forest and city views. While you're in the park, pay a visit to the internationally-acclaimed Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre, one of North America's five largest aquariums. .

Grandville Island

If you're downtown, hop on one of the small passenger ferries that can actually appear like bathtub toys as they cruise through False Creek to the island, famous for its year-round indoor farmer's market, boutique micro-brewery, street buskers, artisan studios and live theatre

Grouse Mountain

While many people prefer to hike up to the top via the Grouse Grind, also known as "Mother Nature's Stairmaster," a scenic (and saner) option is to ride up on the 100-passenger tram, appreciating breathtaking panoramic vistas of the Lower Mainland en route.

Robson Street

Every major city has a famous shopping and cruising strip; ours is Robson Street. Head here for the high fashion, trendy restaurants and bars, the coffee-shop culture and even a little star spotting; don't forget, this is the Hollywood of the North, and Robson Street is a favourite spot for visiting stars to shine.
