Vancouver: City of Glass

According to the Economist Intelligence Unit, Vancouver is the first city ever to rank among the top ten of the world’s most livable cities for five years in a row. Sprawled across the eastern coastline of the Strait of Georgia, this thriving Canadian metropolis has acquired a reputation for spectacular architecture, unmatched cleanliness, beautiful city gardens, and vibrant nightlife. Vancouverites famously adore their city and unite impressively on several civic issues, including the protection of urban parks and a continued emphasis on developing public transit systems.

Vancouver boasts three major theater companies and countless smaller ones, as well as a symphony, an opera, and a flourishing local musician culture. As the third-largest film and television production hub in North America, this city has also earned the nickname “Hollywood North”. Vancouver features an outstanding public transit system, close proximity to three major ski areas, eighteen kilometers of beaches, and the Granville Entertainment District, a concentration of bars and clubs comparable to Bourbon Street in New Orleans, Louisiana and 6th Street in Austin, Texas.
