A vacation in Vancouver
, British Columbia
is a veritable feast for the senses. The beautiful city on Canada’s west coast is a melting pot of ethnicity and culture. Vancouver consistently is in the top five of the list of the world’s most livable cities. A moderate climate, well-planned infrastructure, and a friendly environment all help to make Vancouver a wonderful city to visit.
Vancouver’s diversity is not just cultural, its proximity to both mountains and beaches makes it possible to ski in the morning and sunbathe on a beach in the same afternoon. Vancouver has earned the nickname “Hollywood North
,” because so many movies and television shows choose the city as an ideal place to film. Add in Vancouver’s excellent theater and arts district, plentiful seafood, and unique shopping experiences, and you have a magical city of contrasts.
For a fun day trip that offers a change of pace, take a short ride aboard the ferry to Vancouver Island
. There is a delightful mix of quaint fishing villages, picturesque landscape, unique cities and enchanting wildlife. The friendly locals will make you feel right at home as you enjoy the slower tempo of the island. You can enjoy a peaceful day at the ocean shoreline, take a tour of family owned vineyards complete with wine tastings, and enjoy delectable farm to table cuisine at local eateries.
