ONE OF THE BEST PLACES IN THE WORLD TO LIVE
URBAN CHIC, NATURAL SPLENDOR Vancouver, a sparkling city of glass and steel, edged with snowcapped mountains, blends international chic with rugged Pacific Nor thwest grandeur. You won’t feel out of place dressed to the nines, nibbling haute cuisine, but this region’s jaw-dropping topography adds an ear thy under tone. High style is tempered by cour tesy and reser ve. One of the most temperate cities in Canada, Vancouver enjoys warm summer days and cooler nights; winters are mild, and spring comes early amidst a profusion of cherr y and plum blossoms.
Vancouver's urban glitter is balanced with natural splendor. Stanley Park, an oasis of green covering nearly 1,000 acres and crisscrossed by trails winding through old growth forest, is mere minutes from bustling downtown. Four teen unbroken miles of Seawall, the world's longest scenic walkway, allow strollers and bikers to bask in the dazzling vistas, while the city's many waterways allow others to indulge in swimming, kayaking, sailing, and cruising. Vancouver can impress at any time of year, but it excels during summer's spectacular long, humidity-free days filled with plenty of outdoor activities, festivals, and concer ts. Consistently ranked in the top five cities in the world for outstanding quality of life.

Vancouver is a model of urban utopianism, unblemished by freeways and unfettered by architectural precedents. The Modernist buildings of the city ’s West End and Downtown rise and swell like formations of aquamarine cr ystals. An abundance of eateries of fering eclectic West Coast cuisine is just par t of the edgy vibe in Yaletown, an ar tfully conver ted warehouse district now filled with glass towers, boutiques, and 5-star restaurants; or downtown on Alberni Street, you’ll find a nexus for sought-af ter name brands like Gucci, Hermes, and Tif fany ’s mixed with cafés and upscale steakhouses or tempting sushi delights. Evenings and nightlife in this city can feel serenely relaxed or wildly intoxicating.
