There are a select band of cities where you can ski in the morning and hit the beach in the afternoon – and Vancouver is counted among them. The coastal seaport city in British Columbia is studded with natural beauty, including snow-dusted mountains, sandy beaches, forest trails, kayaking routes and green spaces.
But the people, too, are at the heart of what makes Vancouver such a special place. There is a creative and entrepreneurial spirit here, evidenced in a thriving local art scene and craft-beer industry that rivals the best in the world. They kick back in style too, with snow sports, mountain biking and rainforest exploration daily pastimes that can be enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. Nocturnal attractions are also aplenty, with bustling bars and pubs dotted across the city and an impressive culinary scene.
But don’t make the mistake of thinking that downtown Vancouver is where the attractions start and end. Walk or jump on some public transport and within minutes you’ll be hanging with the locals in one of the city’s distinctive suburbs. To whet your appetite, we’ve condensed the city into twelve unique and diverse attractions.
