THE ULTIMATE OKANAGAN
Vancouver is a beautiful city to visit any time of the year. It is always lush green and vibrant!
There are some special facts about Vancouver that I discovered during my last trip: in 2009 Vancouver began working on Greenest City in the world action plan. The mission of this project is to make Vancouver the greenest city in the world by 2020! Currently Vancouver is working on another exciting program: Zero waste by 2040 through reducing, reusing, recycling steps.
This fills me with pride for my province, for my country.
My website is about discovering places, getting to see the most attractive places for families on a budget.
The most significant place representing Vancouver would be a Seawall. What can be better than a long walk along the sea, breathing in a fresh sea air? Vancouver has the world's longest uninterrupted waterfront path. The 28 km Seaside green way is an uninterrupted pathway, including the Stanley Park Seawall, that extends from the Vancouver Convention Center to Spanish Banks Park. Perfect for a walk, cycle, or jog, it is the most popular recreational spot in the city.
The Seawall is divided in to two clearly marked sections - one for walkers and joggers (closest to the water), and one for cyclists and inline skaters (inside path).
Second "must visit" place in Vancouver is Stanley Park. Stanley Park is a magnificent green oasis in the midst of the urban landscape of Vancouver.
Stanley Park is the 400-hectare natural West Coast rain-forest. Please visit this park during your visit to Vancouver and enjoy scenic views of water, mountains, sky, and majestic trees along Stanley Park's famous Seawall. Even during the winter months park is alive!
The third "must have experience" would be a place to eat in Vancouver based on your preferences. I couldn't resists a small local ramen restaurant with long line in front of it (line was long during day and night hours). However Vancouver can satisfy cravings for any cuisine of the world, you name it! It literally has everything!
