Best of Metro Vancouver

From the North Shore to the oceanfront promenades of Surrey and White Rock…

Metro Vancouver, also called Greater Vancouver, is the metropolitan area surrounding the city of Vancouver. It means the adjoining municipalities in the first place – North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Burnaby, Surrey, Langley, White Rock, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Richmond, New Westminster, Delta, Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows -, but sometimes further municipalities like Mission, Chilliwack, Abbotsford or Squamish are also mentioned as “being in Greater Vancouver”.
