Vancouver skyline, British Columbia
Surrounded by water on three sides and nestled alongside the Coast Mountain Range, Vancouver is the largest city in the province of British Columbia, with over half a million residents, and it has one of the mildest climates in Canada.
Vancouver was selected as the host city for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
Majestic mountains, sparkling ocean, rainforests and beautiful foliage all four seasons make Vancouver one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It was voted the "Best City in the Americas" for 2004, 2005 and 2006 by Conde Nast Traveler magazine, based on the categories of ambience, friendliness, culture and sites, restaurants, lodging, and shopping.
