A city where you can snowboard and sail around at the same time. Covered with snow and forested mountains dropping down to miles of sandy sea shores, Vancouver is a place no one shouldn't miss. One can enjoy a huge variety of sophisticated restaurants, leafy parks, lively, earthy brewpubs, and sassy youthfulness. One can hobnob with the club swarm on out-of-control Granville Road downtown. Hip Yaletown offers up chic mixed drink bars and clubs. Join the relaxed beach crowd at various watering holes in Kitsilano for more laid-back surroundings. In summers, outing in Stanley Park and watch Theater Under the Stars. In Victoria, stop for 16 ounces at a convivial waterside brewpub, or visit the cool bar in the Fairmont Ruler for blue martinis with hot jazz. And why does not everyone dream of visiting Vancouver because even a bad day in Vancouver is better than a good day elsewhere?
