A Quick Look at Vancouver
After a quick look at Vancouver you'll be planning your vacation to the home of the next Winter Olympics (at Vancouver and Whistler in 2010).
The City of Vancouver
Is a pleasing combination of world class city and community minded neighborhoods surrounded by natural and splendid views.
You'll notice when you arrive that the city has a good mix of cultural diversity. It's a favorite Canadian city both among people who live in other parts of the country and newcomers who come to live in Canada.
A lot of that has to do with the fact that Vancouver has mild weather. It's basically a metropolitan city in a temperate rain forest with protected areas and nature reserves like Stanley Park and burns bog wetland close to the city.
You will find all the great things you want in a world class city like fine dining, professional sports teams and shopping.
Comes in many forms. There is outdoor sports and recreation like whale watching, learning to kayak, playing a round of golf at one of the many Vancouver golf courses or skiing at a local mountain (Cypress Mountain, Grouse Mountain)
Vancouver Neighbourhoods and Municipalities
After a day or two of roaming around town looking at Vancouver Sights and Attraction take a day trip to one of our neighbouring municipalities. If you go North and West and you'll go along the magnificent Sea to Sky Highway and get to Whistler�or go South and stop for great fish and chips in the Village of Steveston.
All the together the neighbouring municipalities surrounding Vancouver make up what is called the Greater Vancouver Regional District (GVRD). The population of the GVRD is expected to reach 2.6 million people by the year 2020.
