With TED Vancouver’s 2016 conference, our fair city garnered a massive amount of media attention leading up to the star-studded event. Vancouver even caught the eye of Vogue magazine, and the eponymous fashion publication created a list of what the perfect day might be like in the city.
“We suggest that on your next trip to the city you seek out some stellar sustainable seafood, enjoy a few artfully concocted drinks, peruse some of the laid-back stores, and get lost in an old-growth forest,” writes travel contributor Celeste Moure.
So where are the chic spots in Vancouver, as told by the fashion bible? Well, you start out with coffee at Matchstick Coffee Roasters or 49th Parallel before taking a walk in gorgeous Stanley Park. Hit up Café Medina for brunch before shopping at one of our locally based shops like Oak + Fort or Kit and Ace.
For the afternoon, venture out to Granville Island, and then go to one of our famous breweries for beers. Perhaps fit in a stop at the Museum of Anthropology at UBC before having dinner at Savio Volpe. Finish off with drinks at the new Juniper bar before checking in to your room at the Hotel Georgia.
It might sound like a full day, but hey, our city has a lot to offer. It seems we’ve been getting a solid amount of international press lately: English Bay was on The Guardian’s list of the 50 best beaches in the world and Kit and Ace ranked as one of the 50 most innovative businesses globally by Fast Company.
If ever there was a time to show pride in Vancouver, it’s now.
