Getting to know Vancouver—it's a shore thing

Set on a peninsula on the west coast of British Columbia, Vancouver is a bustling cosmopolitan city with a profusion of international cuisine, plenty of scenic outdoor space, and a thriving arts scene. It's also a popular stopover for cruise passengers en route to Alaska. Visitors are drawn to the city's culture and entertainment, and you can find loads of independent shops, eateries, and nightlife destinations in the trendy Gastown district. Your Vancouver vacation rental will put you close to must-see Vancouver sights like Stanley Park, VanDusen Botanical Garden, and the Vancouver Aquarium.

Opt out(doors) in Vancouver's scenic parks

The city's ample shoreline includes a number of beaches, but the area's relatively cool summer weather means visitors typically prefer the bounty of boating, kayaking, and paddle boarding options available. In Stanley Park, you'll find more than 1,000 acres of preserved waterfront wilderness just outside of downtown Vancouver. Here, you'll find more than 17 miles of trails through the park's towering forests of spruce, hemlock, and douglas fir. The park's harborside sea wall serves as a popular spot for running, biking, and fishing, and you can also find swimming pools, sports facilities, and an open-air pavilion that hosts regular summer concerts.

There's nothing vanilla about vivid, varied Vancouver

With everything from art and entertainment to sprawling gardens and natural history exhibits, you'll find plenty to rave about near your Vancouver vacation rental. At the VanDusen Botanical Garden, you can stroll 55 acres of landscaped grounds featuring plants from around the world. Visitors of all ages will enjoy the Vancouver Aquarium, where you'll find marine life of all sorts, including dolphins, otters, and narwhals, as well as countless types of fish. At the Vancouver Art Gallery, you can get face to face with works by local and international artists.

Vancouver—Canada's coolest coastal climate

Boasting one of the mildest winters in all of Canada, Vancouver has a marine west coast climate, featuring warm, dry summers, and cool winters with plenty of rainfall. Summers average a high of 72 degrees in July and August, while average winter temperatures range from just above freezing to the mid 40s from December through February. A popular destination all year round, the city's busiest season is summer. You'll find that prices for Vancouver vacation rentals tend to be somewhat lower during the city's less frenetic winter months.

Park it for a while in natural Vancouver

The most densely populated city in Canada, Vancouver lies on a sometimes-flat, sometimes-hilly peninsula that's bordered on the north by the Burrard Inlet, and on the south by the Fraser River. To the west of the city are the Strait of Georgia and Vancouver Island, and the North Shore Mountains are only a short drive away. The city's 1,000-acre Stanley Park boasts majestic second- and third-growth forests of hemlock and douglas fir. It's also home to a number of lakes and ponds, and you can spot local wildlife like beavers, coyotes, and bald eagles.
