Nature everywhere: You can always see the ocean and mountain peaks, whether you're on the Stanley Park Seawall or in the middle of downtown
Seafood satori, from fresh-harvested spot prawns to upscale sushi to the ultimate fish 'n' chips
Alpine playgrounds like Grouse, Cypress, and Seymour Mountains are just a hop, skip, and ski-jump away—and Whistler is only 90 minutes by car on the scenic Sea-to-Ski highway
What To Skip
Chinatown's lousy dining spots (although there is an exception or two)—instead, head to Asia West, the new postmodern Chinatown in Richmond, with over 500 Asian restaurants
What For:Family, Food + Wine, Green + Eco-Travel, Nightlife, Outdoors + Nature, Ski + Snowboard
When To Go:July, August, September, October
