#YVR Vancouver BC - History, Culture, Scenery, Outdoors & Nude Beach
The mighty Fraser River roars down from the mountains, in British Columbia, through the canyon, where Chinese immigrant laborers toiled in the 19th century to complete the "Impossible Railway"...The Canadian Pacific. It passes Chilliwack and Abbotsford and crosses the wide Fraser River Delta. It reaches the Pacific Ocean, at Canada's third largest metropolitan area, east of Toronto and Montreal...It's Vancouver, tourism Gateway to British Columbia and Canada's west coast!
Recently voted the “Best City in the Americas” at "Condé Nast Traveler" magazine's annual Readers’ Choice Awards, Vancouver won the top spot over Victoria and Quebec City. This thriving, vibrant and multi-cultural metropolitan area is set against the north Pacific Ocean, and reaches out into the Georgia Straits. Adding to the picture is the ring of mountains to the north and east of the city. Vancouver was named for the British Navy Captain who explored the straits, which separates it from BC's provincial capital, Victoria, on the southern tip of Vancouver Island.
You can hike the mountains, that encircle Vancouver, during the morning, walk on it's beaches later that day, enjoy real great urban trekking and take in the restored historical districts and downtown then take in the cities famous nightlife and varied ethnic cuisine and fabulous brew pubs. Vancouver has been the home of a World's Fair, in 1986, and also hosted the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.
