Why We Love It

Vancouver, an environmentally friendly and walkable city, is a culturally diverse town with an outdoor lifestyle. Surrounded by the beauty of snow-capped mountains and the blue sea, its mix of Stanley Park, Grouse Mountain, Pan-Asian cuisine, bee conservation and, of course, their beloved Vancouver Canucks, make it a unique haven for both city and nature lovers alike.
