Additional Location Information
Vancouver's natural assets and temperate climate make it one of the best cities in the world in which to live, says the annual quality of life survey released by Mercer Human Resource Consulting. The survey placed Vancouver third out of 215 cities. Vancouver's climate helped it rise in the rankings, according to Mercer spokeswoman Danielle Bushen. The only two places that beat the West Coast city were Switzerland's Zurich and Geneva.
As the largest city in Western Canada, Vancouver, BC, is the ideal place to visit. There are very few places in the world that offer the same kind of grown-up playground as Vancouver, BC. For one, where else can you sunbathe on an ocean beach in the morning, go skiing in the afternoon and play a round of golf after a 5-star dinner at one of the many exquisite restaurants, and then catch an NHL game, go see a Broadway-quality show and stop by one of the city's excellent live venues to catch some music and dance, all in one day? In Vancouver, BC, all this is possible and more.
Vancouver lies in a region of more than 2 million people, which makes it the largest city in the province of British Columbia, and it is currently the third largest city in Canada. Vancouver is framed by ocean on three sides and is nestled inside white peaked Coastal Range mountains that rise behind the city to more than 1,500 m. Vancouver has one of the mildest climates in Canada with temperatures averaging 3°C in January and 18°C in July. It does rain quite a bit in Vancouver in winter, but this also adds to the high quality skiing in the surrounding mountains, some as close as a 20-minute drive from downtown.
Vancouver is a playground for children and adults alike. Indulge in the award-winning restaurants and eateries. Stroll down the streets of one of the many trendy fashionable clothing areas of the city. Visit some of the best antique stores, museums, art galleries and theatres in the world. Some of Vancouver's most popular destinations are its public parks, such as the world famous Stanley Park, sandy beaches like Kitsalano beach, and natural splendour, such as, the grouse mountain or Capilano Suspension Bridge, which are all easily accessible from Vancouver. Come to Vancouver, you will not be disappointed.
Vancouver BC is easily accessible by car, by boat, by plane and by train. Vancouver International Airport offers non-stop departures and arrivals from most of the world's primary airports. Driving to Vancouver from the US is simple as it is located at the top end of Interstate 5 which runs all the way to San Diego California down the western coast of the United States. Driving from within Canada is also simple as Vancouver is almost the end of the TransCanada highway. Getting here is easy, visiting here is a pleasure. Come and check it out!
