Engulfed by mountains and surrounded by water on three sides, Vancouver is a great place to enjoy a FUN vacation all year round. It’s an especially exciting time to plan a trip to Vancouver now, in time for the Winter Olympics (February 12-28). As Host City of the 2010 Olympic Games, Vancouver is the place to be.
Vancouver is British Columbia’s largest city and one of Canada’s most popular destinations. Rich in arts, culture and history, Vancouver is also a favorite of people who love the great outdoors – it’s not every city that gets to host a Winter Olympics!
There’s so much to do and see In Vancouver – fun museums and art galleries, historic sites, trendy shopping, fabulous restaurants, parks and classical Chinese gardens. The North Shore Mountains – and its three popular ski areas (Cypress Mountain, Grouse Mountain and Mount Seymour) – are located about a 30-minute drive from downtown Vancouver.
During your visit to Vancouver, take a fun Day Trip to Whistler or Victoria, both popular BC tourist destinations. Whistler is the Host Mountain Resort of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics and Paralympic Games.
