A city packed full of fascinating neighborhoods, diverse eateries, several cultural sites, outdoor activities, and stunning natural scenes on its outskirts, it’s no wonder that Vancouver is named one of the top five worldwide cities for livability and quality of life. The third-largest metropolitan area in Canada is famous for its vast cuisine, hub of culture, and the ease of flittering between snow-capped mountains and sun-drenched beaches. Sitting on nature’s doorstep, Vancouver combines the pure white of skiing slopes, golden sunlight of sandy beaches, and emerald green of several parks into one brilliantly colorful kaleidoscope. Colloquially known as “Hollywood North,” Vancouver has the third largest movie and television industry in the world, after Los Angeles and New York. However, if you want to see something a little less glamorous and more down-to-earth, check out the city’s hub of culture, with everything from toe-tapping music to eye-wateringly brilliant theatre shows. Whether you want to mountain bike, museum hop, or attend indie festivals, everything you want in a holiday can be found in Vancouver.
