Vancouver BC Travel Guide
Welcome to Vancouver!Situated along British Columbia's coastline, Vancouver is a 'Pacific Pearl'. Lying between the Coast Mountain range and the Pacific Ocean, Vancouver is one of the most scenic cities in the world. Vancouver's mild temperatures and bounty of rain are also owed to its location, making even the most urban of areas lush year round. Stanley Park—occupying 400 hectares (1000 acres) just north of downtown—is a flourishing example of how Vancouver balances nature with its urban identity. A quintessential west coast city, Vancouver appeals to millions of denizens and visitors who bask in all it offers, from its soothing beaches to its bustling streets. Its cosmopolitan character is reflected in areas like the very urban Robson Street—Canada's version of Rodeo Drive—contrasted by trendy Granville Island with its mix of cobblestone streets, artisan studios and eclectic market. The Vancouver International Airport is located in Richmond, just south of Vancouver proper.
The Vancouver Aquarium is much more than just a place to see fish.
Hotels & Motels
The Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre is located in the heart of the city's financial and entertainment district.
From a Banff, Canmore, Kananaskis Country or Lake Louise day hike to a multi-day helicopter-assisted backcountry trip at Mt.
