Vancouver, British Columbia

Vancouver offers every imaginable big-city attraction and is among Canada's densest, most ethnically diverse cities. Boasting mountains and ocean as a backdrop, it's always topping the lists of most livable, greenest, cleanest and healthiest cities, and lauded as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Explore the Museum of Anthropology and the Vancouver Art Museum for culture. History flourishes in the Gastown district, which boarders vibrant Chinatown. Or enjoy a beak from the bustle in Stanley Park, one of North America's largest urban parks.
