Vancouver City Travel Guide

Vancouver City Travel Guide

Vancouver, one of the world’s most spectacular cities, welcomed the world as host city of the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. Named “Top City of the Americas” in Condé Nast Traveler Magazine’s 2009 Readers’ Choice Awards, Vancouver offers travelers both outstanding opportunities for outdoor adventure and the sophisticated amenities of a world-class city.

Renowned for its scenic beauty and endless opportunities for outdoor activities, Vancouver is also a cosmopolitan city with all the urban amenities — fine dining, shopping, museums, galleries, music and theatre.

Hit the nightclub scene or wander through ethnic enclaves. Relive memories of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games with attractions and activities related to the Olympics. Visit the aquarium, take a city tour or stroll through Stanley Park, the city’s urban wilderness, or explore the surrounding area on an interesting driving route. Don’t miss the year-round markets or fail to take in a hockey game. Festivals? There is always something to celebrate in Vancouver. If all else fails, there is always that fabulous outdoor life the city is renowned for.

There are more great restaurants in Vancouver than we can shake a salad at so we have chosen some unique views from the Lookout! at Harbour Centre.

The Top of Vancouver Revolving Restaurant, in downtown Vancouver is stunning. Luckily, the dishes served up at the revolving restaurant atop the observation deck are good enough to compete with the million-dollar vistas. Steak, seafood, pastas and 360°.


Espana Restaurant brings a taste of Spain to Vancouver’s West End. Like any good tapas joint, there’s an array of dishes to choose

Yew Seafood + Bar has exceptional fine dining and stellar service. Special features include a contemporary raw bar, a pastry chef that creates heavenly desserts, and a solid wine and cocktail program. YEW has a seafood heavy menu that’s promotes sustainability.
