See the city from above at the CN tower, wander the halls of the Royal Ontario Museum, witness the passion of an ice hockey game and at the end of the day, recline with a cocktail in the Entertainment District. Though it may be home to luxury hotels and famous film festivals, even in Canada's largest city you can take a 90 minute drive to one of the world's most famous natural wonders, the thrilling Niagara Falls.
Vancouver is the beating heart of British Colombia. Young and vivacious, Vancouver is a place many dream of living in, and it's easy to see why.
