Live, breathe, eat Vancouver

Consistently voted among the best cities in the world to live in, Vancouver is visually stunning, from its snow-capped mountains to its sandy beaches on the edge of Pacific waters. Despite its laid-back culture, there is a genuine fizz of creative energy, which can be seen in the constant building work and artistic endeavour across the city, not least in its kitchens. This young city has much to offer everyone, from shopping to skiing, to just sightseeing, plain and simple.

Observatory, space center and planetarium Editors' Note

The Pacific Space Center is the perfect place to head for space fans. The center features laser shows and educational programs in the planetarium. The planetarium is domed so the shows there allow you feel surrounded by the universe. There is also an interactive display available for kids.

You might want to try taking the simulation ride through space, if you’re feeling adventurous. There’s no shortage of things to do at the Pacific Space Center and it is educational for everyone in the family.
