More About The City

About Vancouver, BC

As the commercial center of British Columbia and one of North America's largest ports, Vancouver is dynamic, modern, and growing at an unparalleled rate. In fact, statistics show that it's the fastest-growing city on the continent and that it boasts an ethnically diverse population. In spite of such rapid growth, Vancouver is a picturesque town, surrounded by snow-capped peaks, Burrard Inlet and English Bay. This spectacular setting is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts, who also enjoy scenic getaways at Stanley Park, Grouse Mountain and the area's various beaches. But Vancouver is chic as well as beautiful. Robson Street has been called the Rodeo Drive of Canada, and the city's cultural and performing arts are vibrant and sophisticated. In addition, Vancouver has become the third-largest film production center in North America affectionately dubbed 'Hollywood North.'
Vancouver, BC Factoid
What was that noise?? Well, if it's 9pm in Vancouver, it was probably the Nine O'Clock Gun. Here's the story: A little over 100 years ago, an old British sea cannon was installed at Stanley Park. Every evening at 9pm the cannon was fired to remind local fishermen of fishing time limits. That purpose is obsolete now, of course, but Vancouver continues the tradition anyway, and you can set your watch by it!
