This seaport city was completely destroyed when the locals started a fire to clear an area by Main Street in 1886. The fire got out of control and the city burned to the ground. But like a phoenix rising from the ashes, it was rebuilt to become the third most liveable city in the world. When you visit Vancouver, you can go sailing, skiing, biking, and golfing...all in the same day. At the end of the day, you can swim and relax in the longest swimming pool in Canada. It is bigger than three, Olympic-sized pools and is filled with heated, fresh salt water.
Vancouver is the 10th cleanest city in the world and has the 4th largest cruise ship terminal. Its nickname is Hollywood North because it ranks second only to Los Angeles for TV productions and ranks third for feature film productions. It is also home to Greenpeace, the world’s oldest environmental group. And, last but not least, the California roll was invented in Vancouver.
