Vancouver

vancouver_kitsbeach2.jpg With the Coast Mountains north of the city creating a majestic backdrop and glass towers and copper-topped skyscrapers ringing two newly-developed waterfronts, Vancouver continues to retain its image as one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Located at the southwest tip of the province of British Columbia on the west side of Canada, the surrounding evergreen forest and an abundant amount of rainfall keeps the city perpetually clean and green. In season, the beautiful gardens both private and public, are impossible to ignore.

Historically, the city is very young. In 1886, nearly one hundred years after visits from Spanish explorer Navarez and British explorer George Vancouver, the thriving settlement, first known as Granville, became the city of Vancouver.

Lumber and fishing boosted the economy and helped the city grow. Today, due to environmental issues these commodities are no longer secure, however, the city's physical attributes assure a solid future in tourism.
