Introducing Vancouver

It’s no wonder that Vancouver frequently tops the list of ‘World’s Best’ lifestyle cities. Location, location, location—that alluring combination of surf and snow has proved an intoxicating mix for Vancouverites who are first to expound their city’s world-renowned attributes. Few places combine the cosmopolitan verve of a modern city with sandy beaches, forests and an outstanding ski resort less than 85 miles away. It wasn’t until Vancouver played host to the Winter Olympics in 2010 that the city established itself on the radar of the world’s adventure loving urbanites. From the historic streets of Gastown to the salty seafront of Kitslina, the funky enclave of SoMa, and the expansive Stanley Park—where walking or cycling the seawall is an initiation rite—Vancouver is hip, yet unpretentious, a city that balances work and play, the cerebral and the corporeal, with flair. Across the water, far removed from the shimmering glass and steel of downtown you can graze your way through the city’s culinary heritage at Granville Island’s Public Market. And, when it comes to fine dining, Vancouver boasts some of the most eclectic and sophisticated cuisine in North America. From creative seafood dishes to mouthwatering sushi and piquant Thai, even fish and chips at Spanish Banks Beach, Vancouver has nurtured with aplomb its vocation as an epic culinary destination.
