“I've visited Vancouver five times over the past few...”

Written on: 27/01/2010 by Frosteee (69 reviews written)

I've visited Vancouver five times over the past few years and love the place. It's a huge city with about 2m people living there but in many ways it feels like a much smaller town. The locals are very friendly and relaxed. You'll get great service in restuarants and bars too.

In the summer the beach is a nice place to chill out with some beautiful sunsets to watch, as well as the beautiful rollerbladers and joggers! There's lots of outdoor activities in the surrounding forests and mountains - mountain bikes, hiking, zip lining. You can go for a ride in a seaplane too.

In winter you have 3 mountain ski resorts on your doorstep that even offer night skiing with amazing views over downtown Vancouver. Cypress is the best by far. Then you have Whistler 2 hours away - the best snow resort in North America - and NHL ice hockey with the Vancouver Canucks in town. You may have to work hard to get hold of a ticket though - the locals are very passionate about their team!

I always stay with friends so I can't comment on the local hotels, but they certainly look new and clean form the outside just like the rest of downtown. Flights are expensive - try Canadian Affair for charter flights that are cheaper than BA or Air Canada.

Overall I love the city and would recommend it to anyone wanting a different kind of North American city visit with more outdoorsy stuff on offer.
