Vancouver is an emerald on British Columbia's Pacific Coast, boasting a plethora of cultural attractions, a dense and modern skyline, and within minutes of its urban center, outdoor playgrounds that stretch from ocean islands to the Coast Mountains.

Warm, moderate summers and mild winters offer adventure seekers the opportunity to ski down world-class slopes, raft, and hike or climb rugged peaks. It is famous for its mountain biking. Exploring the city's neighborhoods takes you through trendy boutiques of Yaletown, cobblestone streets of Gastown, and ethnic enclaves of Chinatown and Greektown. A strong mix of international cultures has created an acclaimed culinary scene with foods that range from local Pacific Northwest dishes to exotic Asian flavors.

Vancouver also has the distinction of being the third-largest film production center in North America behind only Los Angeles and New York City.  It's no wonder the city is not just the best among cities in British Columbia, it has been recognized as "one the world's most desirable places to live" and was chosen to host the 2010 Winter Olympics.
