Vancouver

 
Sea sand to boutique to mountain peaks
Vancouver, British Columbia
The mild ocean climate and mountains nearby mean that anything is possible in Vancouver all-year around. Golf and sail on the same winter day that you escape to the mountains to ski.

Catch the Olympic spirit in the host city

Vancouver has Olympic fever and you can get it too. See the neon lights of the rebuilt Granville Mall. Dine on the water and look up at the night-skiing lights on local mountains where Olympic events will take place. Visit the amazing 800 foot long Olympic Speed Skating Oval in Richmond.

Boutiques on Robson, then the sunset in Stanley Park

Shop at the elegant stores on Robson Street or Granville Island. Then walk over to Stanley Park and "do" the seawall. Afterwards, stop at one of the restaurants in the park and watch the sun go down over the ocean, while you dine on delicious local fare.

Ski the local mountains and admire spectacular views

Grab your gear or rent it there. Ski one of three local mountains day or night. Enjoy spectacular sunsets looking from the peaks out over the ocean, and then ski or snowboard until you are ready for a delicious, mountain-top dinner.

If you have one week...

Head up to Whistler for skiing and adventures. Stay in a luxurious mountain resort with world-class restaurants. Or take a ferry to the Sunshine Coast or Bowen Island and feel your pace slow down as you relax at an oceanside resort.
