According to Conde Nast Traveller’s recent Reader’s Choice Awards for 2017, Vancouver has once again placed in the top 10 best cities in the world and it’s obvious as to why: mind-blowing outdoor scenery, rich multicultural diversity, a dizzying array of cosmopolitan as well as a hipster dining experiences and of course, a thriving visual & performing arts scene.
It’s time to shed those down parkas and woolly toques; after what has been an unbearably long, cold winter, a profusion of pink cherry blossoms punctuate the city landscape and herald the return of spring to the West Coast.
Both visitors and locals alike would agree that Vancouver is visually picture postcard perfect, especially when it boasts mountains and an ocean nearby for a handy backdrop, but this world class cosmopolitan city in the Pacific Northwest is absolutely captivating when she’s all glammed up for the holidays.
It’s time to enjoy longer stretches of drier weather, beautiful blossoms and pleasant strolls in one of the many gorgeous parks in and around downtown Vancouver: spring is in the air!
An exceedingly pleasant way to see the city as well as to get across False Creek with an exceptional view from the water involves climbing on board one of the little blue boats that glide effortlessly on the waterways: False Creek Ferries is probably one of Vancouver’s best kept secrets as a notable and interesting mode of transportation.
