Another annual award, another accolade for Vancouver.

According to TripAdvisor’s Annual Travellers’ Choice Awards, Vancouver ranks number one on the list of top 10 destinations in Canada.

“In its 150 years, Vancouver has grown into a cosmopolitan city nestled in the great outdoors,” TripAdvisor states. “Enjoy the snow-capped mountains, waterfront forests, cityside beaches, Olympic history and the world’s highest suspension bridge. Hipsters welcome. (Don’t worry, they don’t bite.)”

Whistler takes second spot

Right behind Vancouver, in second place, is Whistler.

With its landscape, pedestrian-only Village and “genuine, down-to-earth mountain culture,” TripAdvisor calls Whistler “an unforgettable year-round destination.”
