Vancouver, British Columbia, is the Canadian gem of the Pacific Coast. The city offers plenty of beautiful natural surroundings and opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts to explore everything from mountains to beaches. Beyond its pristine surroundings, travelers will find plenty of things to do in Vancouver including top-notch museums, fine dining, cultural diversity and excellent shopping – the makings of a world-class vacation destination. Marriott Vancouver hotels allow guests to enjoy both the city’s natural beauty and its urban charm.
The first stop on any sightseeing tour is Stanley Park, one of the top sights in Vancouver. Hotel guests will be impressed by this urban oasis, home to fir trees, gardens, wildlife and walking trails. Get a feel for the artistic style of the region with a trip to Vancouver Art Gallery. Another equally impressive attraction is the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden. Visitors can take informative guided tours of this authentic garden designed by artisans from China. History buffs will enjoy a trip to the Museum of Anthropology, dedicated to art of the Pacific Northwest and various indigenous cultures.
After a day of sightseeing, patrons of our hotels in Vancouver can enjoy the nightlife in neighborhoods like Gastown or on Granville Street, home to the city’s best nightclubs and pubs. Authentic Greek dining can be found on Fourth Avenue, and Vancouver’s Chinatown, the largest in Canada, is home to a number of authentic eateries. If you’re visiting in the summertime, don’t miss the city’s premier summer event, the Celebration of Light. Held every year at the end of July/beginning of August, this international fireworks competition is surely worth the trip. No matter what draws you here, one thing is for certain—Vancouver is a unique multicultural destination that you won’t soon forget.
