Vancouver Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia

 

Vancouver’s breezes carry the scents of nature and aromas of all the urban delights you’d expect from a city regularly voted, “the Worlds most livable”.

The city takes its name from the British navigator who landed here in 1792. The original settlement was called “Gastown”, in honor of Gassy Jack, who built the city’s first tavern. Gassy Jack and his makeshift pub may be long gone, but in the historic neighborhood of Gastown, his spirit lingers on.

Vancouver’s early history continues at Waterfront Station, the western terminus of the Canadian Pacific Railway. The railway’s construction brought Chinese workers by the thousands, whose descendants have enriched Vancouver ever since. Experience this interweaving of cultures in Chinatown, where the fusing of Oriental flavors with local seafood has helped earn the city the title, “the Culinary Capital of Canada.”

After visiting Vancouver’s central highlights, ride the ferry to Granville Island. Stock up on provisions at the Granville Island Public Market and sample craft ales at Granville Island Brewing. From Granville Island, head to Queen Elizabeth Park on Little Mountain, a peaceful oasis high above the city.

When it’s time to answer the call of the wild, cross the Lions Gate Bridge to The North Shore, a wilderness where bears roam and salmon-filled rivers flow through old-growth forests. Less than a two-hour drive from the city is Whistler Blackcomb Resort, the largest ski resort in North America. The beautifully connected runs here cater to all skill levels and attract elite skiers and beginners from all over the globe.

    1. Hannah Tubbs I’ve lived in Vancouver all my life and while it is truly a stunning city to look at in the summer (when mostly all the clips in this video were taken) the rest of the year is incredibly dark, dreary, rainy and downright depressing basically 8 months out of the year. The video also fails to mention how ridiculously expensive it is to live here because foreign Chinese millionaires buy homes here and then leave them vacant for the property value. So you will never own a home here unless you have $1.5 million + to spare. People here are somewhat snobbish and there is no sense of community in my personal opinion, and if you’re from Oklahoma where I expect most people are white, you will quickly become a minority here as like 70% of Vancouver population is asian. Not that that’s a bad thing but it can be a bit of a shock if you don’t know. I’d suggest doing some serious research before just up and moving here after seeing a really good video. The video doesn’t lie but it’s doing its job – promoting a city in the best possible way and painting a picture for potential travellers about what it’s like. I don’t hate Vancouver but I honestly do not like it. There are much more livable and exciting cities in the world, like New York, London, San Francisco, Portland etc.

    1. Good, Japanese are very weak and easy to knock the life out of making them mindless zombie drones. We will come for everyone in Vancouver soon. We hate thieves. We consider everyone in Vancouver, the lower mainland, and those on Vancouver Island to be thieves (especially the Chinese who used a commie revolution to not repay their debts. They have no money.). true slavery beacons since you chose to betray and steal from God. Tao = Tau = Tau are us = Taurus = the bull of yin and yang = all taoists are the bull for the Christians to slaughter. Coming for all of you in your special cities. 😀

    1. Healthy living is a priority for many Vancouverites, and they all seem to love animals vegan restaurants are everywhere and yoga studios. As a vegan myself for health and animal care reasons, I spent so much money on all the delicious vegan fare I discovered at the vegan restaurants, and it was worth it can’t wait to go back.

    1. I like SF more than Vancouver. But the outskirts of Vancouver are beautiful! If you go to Vancouver, avoid gastown, it’s complete trash. Stanley park is nice, but a bit underwhelming, I don’t think you need a whole day there. The capilano is expensive, but I enjoyed it! I think the further out of the city you go the better it gets honestly.
