VIBRANT URBAN LIFE & THE ESSENCE OF NATURE
Vancouverites have long known why their beautiful city is regularly invoked as being among the world’s most livable urban areas. Simply put, few cities are as clean, friendly, multicultural, modern, active, eminently walkable, safe, and exciting. It’s Canada’s version of West Coast Cool. As the gracious host of the 2010 Winter Olympics, Vancouver is no stranger to hospitality. Nestled between the Coast Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, this zestful city is destined to be experienced.
BC’s blend of world-class cities and Olympic-class attractions can hardly be topped, and there’s no lack of sightseeing opportunities to explore it all.
WHISTLER Some things are beyond our control, like falling in love with the Whistler Mountain and its mile-long list of diversions, such as indulging in outdoor sports on over 8,000 acres of skiable terrain from November through July. Home to the 2010 Winter Olympics, this awesome mountain resort town has earned its bragging rights for a lifetime with: • 8,000 acres of North America’s largest ski terrain, with 38 lifts carrying skiers to 12 bowls. • 17 mountain restaurants, over 200 trails, and North America’s highest vertical drop.
• Vancouver is a foodie paradise, and there are several gourmet tours that introduce you to the famous Granville Island Public Market as well as several of the city’s most acclaimed restaurants, with tastings included. • Flexible hop-on/hop-off bus tours introduce you to the sights and sounds of Vancouver, including English Bay, Stanley Park, Granville Island, Yaletown, Gastown, Chinatown, Robson Street, and the Entertainment District. • Take the Grouse Mountain Skyride to the top of the famous mountain overlooking Vancouver. And don’t miss the breathtaking Capilano Suspension Bridge, suspended 230 feet above and 450 feet across Capilano River and connecting to Treetops Adventure, a series of suspended walkways above the forest. • Soar over the glacial streams and rugged terrain of the picturesque forest valley between Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains with Ziptrek Ecotours, who pioneered the zip-line adventure concept in North America.
VICTORIA Victoria – known as the “City of Gardens” for its green parks and flowery show gardens – is also a gold mine of venerable architecture. The semblance of British ancestry lives on in its enchanting Butchart Gardens, chivalrous horse-drawn carriages, double-decker buses, and historic Inner Harbor. Climb 87 stairs of the charming Craigdarroch Castle for spectacular views of Victoria.
BRITISH COLUMBIA EXPERIENCES • In Vancouver, explore Stanley Park’s natural urban oasis and marvel at the iconic First Nations totem poles. • Ski the same breathtaking slopes as the Olympic champions at Whistler-Blackcomb Ski Resort. • Have brunch in downtown Vancouver, then ski the slopes of Grouse Mountain, just 15 minutes away! • Hop onto a boat at Victoria’s Fisherman’s Wharf for an afternoon of whale-watching. • Lose yourself in the colorful fragrant cornucopia of annuals, perennials, and unique shrubs of Victoria’s Butchart Gardens. • Fruits, veggies, chocolates, baked goods – you’ll find lots of goodness at Vancouver’s Granville Island Public Market! • Fire up a snowmobile and traverse the groomed trails, frozen lakes, and remote wilderness areas of Whistler. • Dance the night away in Vancouver’s Yaletown, Downtown, or Granville Island. • Savor a taste of history in Gastown, accessorized by modern fashion, trendy restaurants, and remarkable architecture.
