Perched on Canada’s West Coast, the city of Vancouver offers spectacular landscapes and a virtual outdoors-lover’s playground. Originally named Gastown, this large metropolitan area has more than just the sun. In fact, you can take in the rays on the Pacific Coastline, embark on a skiing adventure, and relax in one of the city’s many parks, all in the same day. Vancouver’s most popular parks are Queen Elizabeth Park, with amazing gardens, and Stanley Park, with high lookouts over the entire city while soft, low key music plays in the background. This place is a can’t-miss for any Canadian vacation.
