When to go

Vancouver has some of the best weather of any Canadian city -- in summer, that is. Winter, while not as cold as much of Canada, can see wet spells that last for days on end (which becomes a perk if you drive ... Read more
into the mountains for some skiing). Summer’s ample sun and temperatures in the low 70s (21-23C) mean that Vancouverites and tourists alike head outdoors to get a tan on the city’s beautiful beaches and participate in myriad festivals and events. Spring and fall are a little cooler, with temperatures ranging from 48-65F (9-18C), but you can still take a walk in Stanley Park, kayak in the English Bay, and get much better deals on lodging.

Seattle

There is so much Vancouver has to offer. Lots of outdoor adventures as well as what seems like unlimited options for foodies and plenty of shopping. The sky tram was also easy to use and convenient.

I love Vancouver. Such a beautiful mix of outdoors, culture and food. We came for our anniversary and went biking, hiking, kayaking and ate in amazing restaurants. I came away wanting to live here.

Vancouver is the city most Canadians want to live in. The natural beauty, temperate weather and great food scene makes it the best Canadian city on the west coast.

Vancouver offers so much in terms of natural beauty and city life. The Stanley Park is my favorite place to visit. The food scene is very vibrant with a new wave of restaurants that spoil our stomach and stimulate our taste buds. Similar to San Francisco, Vancouver is one of my favorite cities on the West Coast.

It only took one day for me to fall in love with the city of Vancouver - one of the most beautiful cities in the world. This hip and modern city melts into nature via the gorgeous mountain backdrop along with the tantalizing Pacific ocean. Instead of destroying and conquering, the exquisite extension of nature by ways of the mankind makes this city a heaven on earth. To the North of Vancouver, the nature scene is backed by the natural wonders of Canadian Rockies and the city itself marked by a Seawall that's built all around the downtown area alongst its shorelines marks its unique personality as a city in nature. The Stanley park is easily one of the most impressive urban parks, the hip and vibrant Gastown breathes cultural and nightlife, the grandeur amount of exquisite Asian restaurants can be found at every corner, next-to-asia quality. The city itself breathes life and wonders.

Vancouver is a city of 600,000. Rain or shine it's a great place for people watching and full of beautiful parks and bridges.

An Indian Affair is a culinary treat for those who carve a taste of India. Located in Langley it offers a wonderful choice of fine authentic Indian dishes that will make your mouth water and bring you back again and again. I especially recommend the Butter Chicken which will melt in your mouth.

Located on the bay close to Vancouver Island and Whistler, the ski and hiking resort Vancouver offers natural and urban attractions. Definitely one of the most beautiful cities in Canada.
