Vancouver, British Columbia, is two cities rolled into one with interests for one and all. For an outdoor lover, this western Canadian city is a nature paradise, with miles of scenic hiking and bike trails that sweep along the Strait of Georgia, the tree-lined waterway that connects Vancouver with the Pacific Ocean. For urbanites, Vancouver is a sophisticated destination, with thriving immigrant enclaves, an ever-expanding restaurant scene, quirky neighborhoods, distinctive shops and lively bars that party all night. Part of the fun is weaving your way through Vancouver’s two sides, and realizing that’s why the city ranks as one of the world’s most livable places. Visit Tourism BC to find out more about Vancouver.
