Vancouver Attractions

Some people come to Vancouver to get away from it all and to leave the stress of work and city living behind. Some come to enjoy the wide-open spaces, the sandy beaches, majestic rainforest and rugged West Coast mountains. Others come to try their hand at skiing, windsurfing, scuba diving or inline skating. Some come with families in tow excited about visiting the Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre, Science World and the Kids Only market. Still others come to enjoy world-class entertainment, fantastic cuisine and some of the finest and most eclectic shopping around.

Vancouver's attractions are endless. It doesn't matter what time of day it is or what time of year it is. It doesn't matter whether you want to be indoors or outdoors. Spending a lot of money or none at all. Seeing the sites or seeing a show. Whether it's bird watching or people watching, Vancouver is the place to do it all. Vancouver English Centre often arranges tours to Seattle, Whistler and Victoria.

 

Vancouver's Parks

Stanley park, the largest and probably most beautiful urban park in Canada, is within walking distance of downtown Vancouver. Located on the edge of English Bay, Stanley Park is surrounded by beaches with panoramic views of the Vancouver area.

 

Vancouver Climate

Warmed by Pacific Ocean currents and protected by a range of mountains, Vancouver enjoys mild temperatures year-round. From high 70°s Fahrenheit (low 20°s Celsius) in summer to a mild mid 40°s Fahrenheit (0° to 5° Celsius) in winter, the climate is always hospitable. Our winters are wet, but it rarely snows, except on local ski hills.

In 1995, the Corporate Resources Group in Geneva, Switzerland, released a ranking of 118 major cities in the world based upon living and environmental conditions. The City of Vancouver won a silver medal as the second best city in the world.
