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
History break: The time is June, 1886; the place, the newly incorporated town of Vancouver. A minor brush fire on the outskirts of town gets out of control, and within 30 minutes, the entire city burns to the ground. Mayor and real-estate mogul M.A. McLean quickly sets about rebuilding, using more fire-resistant material. A good idea, as it turns out, because much of that construction has lasted to this day.
