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
Water, water everywhere! Vancouver is most definitely a maritime city, surrounded on three sides by water: the Fraser River to the south, Burrard Inlet to the north, and English Bay to the west. The water is fairly chilly most of the year, but not more so than at 2:30pm on New Year's Day, when some 2000 hardy souls plunge into English Bay. Vancouver's Polar Bear Swim, started in 1920 by restaurateur Peter Pantages, is one of the oldest and largest in the world.
