Maybe you’re like we once were, and you think that Vancouver is not really a worthwhile tourist destination on its own. While it’s true to some extent – mainly because so much natural beauty surrounds the city that you just don’t want to miss it if you’re already here -, Vancouver does offer a lot and deserves your time.

It has an astonishing seaside walkway with epic skyline views and some of the best urban parks in the world! Add some beach sunsets, canyons, creeks and waterfalls, exciting museums and a diverse food scene, and it turns out that even though Vancouver lacks cobbled streets, pastel colored historical houses and Gothic cathedrals, it’s still a pretty awesome city to visit.
