Vancouver has the warmth of small neighborhoods and "old world charm", but also has beautiful modern skyline and high end couture. A lovely city to visit...gardens, mountains, ocean, rivers..beautiful area.

Vancouver is a "walking" city with great public transit. Whistler is a great little town, but if you only have one day, I would skip it as it's quite a drive there & back. Instead, I would enjoy Stanley, Granville Island... More
