    Duck and 'couver – visiting vibrant Vancouver

    Pack your bags and save room for the poutine – you're going to Vancouver! With more than 2 million residents in the metropolitan region, Vancouver's a big city and one of the most populous in all of Canada. A serious arts and culture hub, you can find everything from operas, symphonies and ballets to lively local bands and stand-up comedy most nights of the week. It's easy to get around throughout the city, and you'll find loads of Vancouver vacation rentals within easy reach of local landmarks like Stanley Park, the Vancouver Aquarium and the Vancouver Art Gallery.

    To market, to market – Vancouver's shopping and beyond

    Feeling outdoorsy? Then head to Stanley Park, where you'll find more than 400 scenic hectares of wooded walking paths and beaches along Vancouver Harbour and the Burrard Inlet. Whalewatching's popular, too, and you can catch regular tours during the migration season. For a more cosmopolitan turn, check out the funky boutiques and eateries of Gastown, a hip countercultural hub that's home to some of the city's best nightclubs, bars and music venues. After that, you can sample the wares at the bustling Granville Island Public Market, where you can score local produce, hand-made crafts and other goods.

    Vancouver's sights, from paintings to pinnipeds

    Make no mistake, Vancouver's a major city – no matter how long you're in town, you'll never run out of things to see. Culture vultures can get up close with works by local and regional artists at the Vancouver Art Gallery, a sprawling museum whose permanent collection is packed with more than 10,000 works. Or you can take a deep dive into marine life at the Vancouver Aquarium – a big hit with families, the aquarium boasts all manner of sea life, including seals, sea lions and otters, plus more fish, amphibians and reptiles than you can shake a flipper at.

    Rain or shine – temperate times in seasonal Vancouver

    One of Canada's warmest cities, Vancouver boasts an oceanic climate with warm summers, mild winters and plenty of rainfall throughout the year. Average summer highs peak around 22 degrees in July and August, although spikes into the 30s aren't unheard of. The city's temperate winters average between 4 and 7 degrees in December and January. Most of the city's rain falls between October and June, with occasional snowfall between December and February. Summer is the busiest season to visit the city, and you'll have the best luck finding killer deals on Vancouver vacation rentals during the cooler winter months.

    Vivacious Vancouver's varied, vibrant vistas

    Nestled between the Burrard Inlet and Vancouver Harbour, Vancouver lies on a broad peninsula on Canada's southwestern coast. On clear days, you can spot the aptly named North Shore mountains to the north, while the snowy peaks of the Cascade Mountains can be seen in the southeast. Vancouver itself is urban and densely populated, with sleek skyscrapers and high-rise hotels all along the city's skyline. Stanley Park's forests and beaches provide habitat for countless species of birds and other wildlife, and you'll find loads of Vancouver vacation rentals within a short walk, drive or bus ride from the park.
