About Vancouver - Visitors can easily see why Vancouver is consistently ranked as one of the world’s most livable cities - naturally beautiful, outdoorsy, and there’s a laid-back West Coast vibe - it’s a classic Pacific Northwest city. Located at the southwestern corner of the coastal province of British Columbia, it’s well known for its majestic natural beauty, as it is nestled between the Coast Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. That’s why if you’ve watched shows or movies like “Supernatural” or “The Twilight Saga”, Vancouver and its breathtaking backdrop have been the setting of landmarks from your favorite scenes! Looking for a vacation rental for your stay in “Hollywood North”? Owner Direct provides a variety of accommodations for solo travelers or backpackers, couples, families, and friends wanting to spend time in the city.

Where to Stay & Why - Perfect jumping off point for visiting the attractions of Vancouver, there are accommodation options for all types of travelers: houses, condo rentals, suites, townhouses, or apartments. Built with elegant, tasteful furnishings, it’s a comfortable home-away-from-home to rest, read, and enjoy a prepared meal. The homes are not just well equipped to accommodate everyone comfortably, they can also walking distance to bars, restaurants, and boutiques along the main streets.

Pick a condo rental with just one bedroom and one bathroom, or choose a vacation rental home with more room so everyone can have their own space. In some, you’ll find a cozy open concept living and dining room with a fireplace that features panoramic views. The kitchen is well-equipped with appliances, cooking utensils, and some owners even provide basic supplies like coffee, tea, sugar, and spices.

You could enjoy your favorite drink outside the quaint private balcony off the main living area with views of the North Shore mountains and lovely upscale neighborhood or spend the afternoon at the garden with seating areas and a grill. Other amenities can include an in-suite washer and dryer, iron and ironing board, towels, hair dryers, cable, and internet. The vacation rentalsare in convenient locations, ready to see what Vancouver has to offer? Let’s go!

What to See & Do - This mitten-shaped city on Canada’s western edge draws travelers who love hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, whitewater rafting, and skiing. Looking for a little R&R? Try lounging along the 11 miles of beaches or in one of the numerous parks. During the cold weather, you can duck inside one of the top-notch museums or swing your kids by one of the family-friendly attractions, like Granville Island or the Capilano Suspension Bridge. Add excellent shopping, dining, and nightlife scenes to the mix, you’ll see why many praise Vancouver as a go-to getaway for the multifaceted traveler.

Where to Eat & Drink - Thanks to its seat along the Pacific Coast, Vancouver boasts its share of delicious, quality seafood. Two of the city’s favorite seafood restaurants is Blue Water Cafe + Raw Bar and Rodney’s Oyster House. Cuisines from other parts of the world are available here too. Just some of it is Chinatown and Punjabi Market - an Indo-Canadian neighborhood in South Vancouver. There’s also a lot of restaurants that provides a picturesque backdrop, like the Teahouse in Stanley Park, for a romantic dinner.

In keeping with the old frontier spirit, this is a big drinking town, and Vancouver nightlife is full of local microbreweries (like Big Rock Urban Brewery), craft cocktail hot spots (the Shameful Tiki Room), and wine bars (UVA Wine and Cocktail Bar).

How to Get Here & Getting Around - If you’re arriving by air, you’ll most likely be flying into Vancouver International Airport which is just 25 minutes from downtown. Other international airports are Abbotsford, Seattle-Tacoma, and Bellingham. If you want the flexibility to take your time and stopping along the way to enjoy the view, driving is the way to go! Highway 1, the Trans-Canada Highway, accesses Vancouver from points east. Vancouver is only 3 hours north of Seattle. Take the Interstate 5, which becomes Highway 99 at the US-Canada border. You can also take the bus, the BC Ferries, and the train.

Vancouver is ideal for walking, so the best ways to get around is on foot, by bike, and via public transportation.

When to Go - The best time to visit is from March to May and from September to November - the weather is mild and the crowds are thinning. Summer here is crisp and clear, making it a popular season just like winter. Vancouver makes a great home base for winter sports enthusiast wanting to challenge the powder at Grouse Mountain, Cypress Mountain or nearby Whistler.

Vancouver News and Events

Vancouver, HelloBC.com

Vancouver was recognized as the top city in Canada inTravel + Leisure magazine's 2014 World's Best Awards.

The city was also named the Top Destination in Canada in TripAdvisor's 2014 Travellers' Choice awards, and was chosen as the world's "Most Liveable City" in 2010 by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), a title it has been awarded eight times since 2002.
