Vancouver Lands in Top 10 Travel Destinations for 2014

Dec 19 2017, 4:44 pm

Vancouver has been considered a great travel destination for quite some time now and as the city matures, so does its appeal. In the annual Lonely Planet travel rankings, Vancouver placed in the number 7 spot.

Here is what they had to say about our fair city:

Vancouver delivers on nature’s eye-candy – visit, and you’ll never be too far from spectacular mountain vistas, rambling evergreen parks and protected sandy beaches. You’ll appreciate the big-city-look/small-town-vibe the moment you arrive at the airport. Situated neatly on the Burrard Peninsula, a hotchpotch of office towers and hastily planned condos compete for the best of some of the world’s most expensive views, earning the nickname ‘City of Glass’. People live here because they love to run, bike, swim, ski and play. Boredom is not permitted here. If you simply can’t take any more of how good it gets, or it won’t stop raining, or you’ve run outta cash, head for the hills: Cypress, Seymour and Grouse Mountains and the world-famous Whistler (ski) and Blackcomb (snowboard) areas are within easy reach.
