INTRODUCTION TO VANCOUVER
The city of Vancouver seems to have everything, it is a cosmopolitan city with great shopping and a trendy coffee culture, renowned restaurants, bars, clubs, theatres, museums and eye catching skyscrapers. At the north edge of the city lies the Pacific Ocean which is home to numerous water sports and activities and you can stroll along west of the city and discover the woodland oasis of Stanley Park. The ocean cradles the park and is home to three beautiful beaches where you can sunbath and relax away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
The city of Vancouver has all this and the amazing backdrop of the mountains. The scenery in and around Vancouver puts anything you have seen in books and television in the shadows as nothing can prepare you for this kind of scenery, it is truly breathtaking. This coupled with the relaxed, friendly atmosphere, will be part of the reason Vancouver Canada is repeatedly voted the best place in the world to live.
There are so many things to do and see in and around Vancouver. If you are energetic and like to keep active there are plenty of things to keep you busy from hiking, skating, kayaking, sailing, fishing, mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding and much more. If you prefer to take it easy there are eleven beaches, three of which are actually downtown. You can visit Vancouver Aquarium and take a leisurely stroll around Stanley Park whilst taking in some magnificent views and stopping off at the beaches along the way.
You could also take a boat trip to see the whales or go on fishing trips from the harbour. There is also a skyplane which takes you to see some fantastic views. Vancouver BC seems to have everything from the mountains down to the beaches so what ever type of holiday you prefer there seems to be something to suit everyone. There are not many places where you can go skiing in the morning and then chill out on a beach in the afternoon.
Come and experience Vancouver, we know you will love it.
