One of the world’s most beautiful cities, Vancouver is bordered by Burrard Inlet on the north, the Strait of Georgia on the west and the Fraser River on the south, with the mountains and world class skiing less than a 30 minute drive from the city center. The ability to windsurf or sail in the morning and ski the same afternoon attracts visitors from around the world. Vancouver has been named Canada's top destination and repeatedly described as the world's most liveable city.


In Stanley Park at the western tip of the city, there are 1000 acres of woodlands, gardens, flowers, trails, lakes, beaches and wildlife. One of the largest urban parks in North America, it offers quiet trails through the forest; discover Lost Lagoon and Beaver Lake, or bike, skate and walk to circumnavigate the entire sea wall and soak up the beauty of Burrard Inlet and the north shore mountains. You can enjoy several secluded beaches, coves and seaside pool along the way. This magnificent park is also home to the Vancouver Aquarium.

 

Two great locations for sightseeing and shopping are Old Gastown and Robson Street. Gastown is the birthplace of Vancouver, a charming mix of old and new with cobbled streets, Victorian architecture and a unique tangle of mews, courtyards and passages which house boutiques, restaurants, offices and residences.  Robson Street is Vancouver’s answer to London’s Oxford Street and New York’s Fifth Avenue; it is a great place to shop, relax and people watch. 


New Westminster is connected to central Vancouver by major road systems or a twenty-minute Sky Train ride. The oldest city in western Canada, it was the capital of British Columbia between 1858 and 1866. Positioned at the hub of the Greater Vancouver network, today New Westminster has a picturesque waterfront and fabulous Victorian architecture - a vibrant and progressive city with a community rich in tradition and respect for its heritage.
