The commercial center of Vancouver is located in the north of the city, overlooking the beautiful Vancouver Harbor.

The much lauded Canada Place on the waterfront was constructed for the 1986 Expo and remains one of Vancouver's iconic structures.
To the northwest of the downtown area is the expansive Stanley Park, which presents a wonderful escape with dozens of forested trails. Located within the park is the impressive Vancouver Aquarium and a putt putt golf course. Alternatively, consider investigating Sunset Beach, a picturesque strip on the southwest side where you'll find a great range of Vancouver accommodation. There are a number of other beaches just outside the downtown area of the city including Kitsilano, Jericho and Spanish Banks.
