One of the world’s most liveable cities, Vancouver has activities for every kind of visitor. Surrounded by water, mountains and home to healthy living citizens the city is easy to navigate. Our local guides can take you from Granville to Grouse Mountain and everywhere in between on a tour of Vancouver.
Vancouver is constantly voted as one of the worlds most liveable cities (frequently being our home town of Melbourne). The city centre of Vancouver is surrounded on three sides by water. Burrard Inlet to the north, False Creek to the south and English Bay to the west. The north western corner of the city is home to Stanley Park, one of the largest urban parks in the world. Vibrant urban neighbourhoods make up the downtown core. These include Gastown, Chinatown, Yaletown and the West End.
Easy to navigate, Vancouver’s main thoroughfares generally follow a user-friendly grid pattern: streets run north to south and avenues run east to west. The avenues, for the most part, are numbered – 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc. – and the streets are named. Broadway is the main exception to the avenue numbering rule – it should be 9th Avenue.
B.C.’s biggest metropolis has been a hotbed of sustainability for decades, befitting the home of one of the world’s largest urban parks and the historic spot where Greenpeace was founded. Recognised as having the smallest carbon footprint of any major city in North America, Vancouver has committed to becoming the world’s greenest city by 2020.
