A city that always finds itself near the top of the world's best places to live, and it's no wonder. It has one of the most dramatic geographical backdrops of any major city in the world: at the edge of the pacific, sheltered by the Cascade mountain range, on the fringe of great Canadian wilderness. This is a city that has not lost touch with the nature that surrounds it, and it takes total advantage of that awesome disposition. The coastline is immaculately developed to connect with the ocean, and achieves great views of the towering land formations of lower British Columbia. Stanley Park is among the great parks of the world, with more natural character than any city park has to offer.
Vancouver is a city of high rises, mountains and sky trains. Lower to the ground, the city bustles with change.
