Why Meet in Vancouver
If a city is judged by its diversity and culture, we're proud to say that Vancouver neighbourhoods take top honors. No less than a dozen different enclaves invite visitors to stroll colourful sidewalks, savour spectacular settings and soak in a wide range of urban vibes. And the bonus for visitors is that so many of the neighbourhoods in Vancouver are located so close to each other, making it possible to see many sides of this complex and diverse city during your visit.
Unparalleled outdoor adventure is within easy reach, yet the urban landscape is ripe for exploring as well. You may want to enjoy the wide-open spaces, the sandy beaches, majestic rainforest and rugged West Coast Mountains. Others come to try their hand at skiing, golfing, kayaking, scuba diving, fishing or hiking. Still others come to enjoy world-class cuisine and some of the finest and most eclectic shopping around.
There is absolutely no shortage of restaurants in Vancouver, and we’re confident that we have the best in the world. Best seafood, best cocktails, best chefs and, of course, best views. Dining at a restaurant with a great view is simply icing on the cake, and in Vancouver, it’s turned into a quintessential experience.
