There is no prettier city in the world than Vancouver. So lucky to live here!

6400 Nancy Greene Way, North Vancouver, BC V7R 4K9, Canada
Part of the North Shore mountain range, this 4,039-foot peak offers jaw-dropping views of the city. It’s busiest in the winter, when four chairlifts service 33 ski runs, but remains popular in the summer thanks to the steep, 1.8-mile Grouse...

350 W Cordova St, Vancouver, BC V6B 1E8, Canada
Jennifer MacKay’s clothing boutique is the go-to store for fashionable locals, who know they’ll find pieces exclusively in her shop. I have a weakness for the shoes. (604) 685-8885. As told to Rhonda May. This appeared in the September, 2012...

1001 W Cordova St, Vancouver, BC V6C 0B7, Canada
I shouldn't eat ice cream, yet I do. Being lactose intolerant, naturally I was born addicted to ice cream, sorbet, and gelato. I will be bold and say that it is the best gelato in Vancouver if not the country. After all, the owner went to school...

45 Blood Alley Square, Vancouver, BC V6B 1C7, Canada
This little hideaway in a back alley, with its communal tables and chalkboard menus, is where I go with friends when we want to share snacks. They match wines to "tasting trios" selected from their cheese and charcuterie cellar. It’s best to let...

Mount Seymour, North Vancouver, BC V7G 1L3, Canada
Mt. Seymour on the north shore of Vancouver has a great network of snowshoeing trails that lead you up up up to the ultimate pay off...stellar views of Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. Bring some nuts or birdseed and the whiskey jacks will be...
Save Place
Lions Gate Bridge Rd, Vancouver, BC, Canada
One of my favorite things about Vancouver is the Lions Gate bridge, the three-lane thoroughfare that links the downtown core to that nature lover's paradise known to locals as the "North Shore." It's no Golden Gate, but the Lions Gate Bridge has a...

801 W Georgia St, Vancouver, BC V6C 1P7, Canada
Originally opened in 1927, Vancouver's Hotel Georgia was the celebrity haunt of everyone from Elvis and the Rat Pack to Errol Flynn and Katharine Hepburn. The hotel closed in 2006 for a multimillion-dollar restoration project, and reopened as the...

909 Burrard St #100, Vancouver, BC V6Z 2N2, Canada
Le Crocodile has been in Vancouver for an impressive 26 years and is the result of chef Michel Jacob wanting to create a memorable dining experience for foodies such as myself. The traditional plates in this small bistro call 1930s Paris to mind,...
Save Place
450 Denman St, Vancouver, BC V6G 3J1, Canada
You won't just drop a line and twiddle your thumbs while on a fishing charter in Vancouver– island hopping, spotting sea life and taking in incredible views are all part of the adventure. My favorite charter company, Bites-On, lets you: fish for...

508 Taylor St, Vancouver, BC V6B 6M4, Canada
Visiting Vancouver's Chinatown is truly a moveable feast--there are so many good things to eat as you walk the blocks of this Pacific Rim city. This particular bakery-window especially caught my eye--a whole family of little piggies, happy to be...

Celebrity chefs Vikram Vij and Meeru Dhalwala serve brightly spiced dishes at their flagship restaurant—often hailed as one of the world’s finest for Indian food. Their wine-marinated lamb popsicles are legendary, but their menu has other...

6393 NW Marine Dr, Vancouver, BC V6T 1Z2, Canada
Part of the University of British Columbia, this museum houses one of the finest collections of Northwest Coast Aboriginal art, including bentwood boxes, feast dishes, totem poles, and canoes from the Haida and Coast Salish people. Some of...

325 W 11th Ave, Vancouver, BC V5Y 1T3, Canada
Peg Steley travels the world, collecting baubles and objects to use in her exquisite jewellery designs. Specializing in necklaces, Peg's designs can be found at a couple of city retailers, but as she works from her home studio (which is tucked...

315 Carrall St, Vancouver, BC V6A 0A7, Canada
The owners at this breakfast and lunch spot make almost everything from scratch and by hand, from grinding chickpeas for their hummus to making almond milk for the granola. They even offer vegan butter. (604) 681-5776. As told to Rhonda May. This...

788 Denman St, Vancouver, BC V6G 1C9, Canada
Tiny Kintaro often has a line around the block but it's well worth the wait. Select from lean or fatty pork and light, medium, or heavy broth and receive a delicious bowl of ramen far larger than anyone should consume in one sitting.

261 Powell St, Vancouver, BC V6A 2Z1, Canada
Cuchillo is one of the latest entries to Vancouver's skyrocketing dining scene. Although it's in a slightly less desirable neighborhood, the Downtown Eastside, the space and the menu more than make up for it. We had a selection of small plates,...

530 Robson St, Vancouver, BC V6B 2B7, Canada
Japadog is one of those odd and wacky combinations of a hot dog with Japanese toppings, but it works! I had the Terimayo, a teriyaki-drenched dog topped with seaweed. Not substantial for the $5 price tag, but a good snack. The location on Robson...
