Boasting a glorious waterfront setting Vancouver is consistently voted best place to live in Canada, and once you’ve visited you’ll understand why. Maybe it’s the youth and friendliness of the place, or the vast array of shopping, from chic Robson Street to the latest brands in designer malls. Perhaps it’s the artist’s scene, from the funky hotspot of Granville Island to the eclectic mix of museums. Maybe it’s the natural charm of 1000-acre Stanley Park or the surrounding peaks of the Coastal Mountains or the whale watching in the Pacific Ocean. Visit…and decide for yourself.
