Vancouver

WOW, WOW, and WOW! There is quite possibly not another city as naturally beautiful and diverse as Vancouver. Surrounded on three sides by water and nestled along the Coast Mountain Range there is hardly a view that isn't breathtaking. Soft adventure seekers - you've found your paradise. Fishing, hiking, kayaking, rafting, biking, skiing, snowboarding and ice skating are just a few to choose from.

Stanley Park is the largest urban park in North America and a perfect place for relaxing and watching the clouds roll by. Take an aerial skyride to 'The Peak of Vancouver' at Grouse Mountain. The mile-long journey offers an incredible view of the city. Another great view is from the 50th floor of the Vancouver Lookout atop the Harbour Center Tower. The observation deck offers 360 degree views and on a clear day you can see across the water to Vancouver Island over 30 miles away.

Ready to explore the city? Gastown is your first stop. This historic district was the birthplace of Vancouver and its cobbled streets and 19th century buildings give an insight into the people and events that shaped the city back in 1867. Still in downtown, Granville Island is a bustling area of fresh bakeries and one-of-a-kind stores all located in narrow walkways and lanes.

Vancouver is consistently ranked one of the top three most liveable cities in the world. That alone is reason enough for a visit. Incidentally, Vancouver is hosting the 2010 winter Olympic games, so the next few years will show the city at its best as preparations gather pace - a perfect time to see it for yourself!

"Vancouver is probably the only place in the world where it is possible to ski, play golf, and go sailing all in the same day."
