Vacation Overview

Vancouver, located on Canada's West Coast, is one of the most beautiful cities in North America. Surrounded by water, parks and the coastal mountains, the city provides a stunning natural environment perfect for the pursuit of almost any recreational activity.

There aren't many other cities where you can have a round of golf in the morning, go sailing in the afternoon, then hit the slopes for night skiing - if you're ambitious.

Vancouver is the largest city in the province of British Columbia, yet it hasn't lost its community feel. Meanwhile, there are abundant restaurants in which you can sample a plethora of foods of all ethnic varieties.

A strategic location on the Pacific Rim and the US-Canadian border has helped Vancouver take a leading position in Canadian business and trade. Meanwhile, Vancouver has emerged as one of the top biotechnology hubs in the country, with exciting initiatives stemming from the University of British Columbia and elsewhere.
