Yet another city is not meant to be an insult; I would say the same thing about Austin, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo, Buenos Aires, and even New York City. It’s just that it’s another city.
When you are grinding the 9-5 M-F commuting back and forth in a city your thoughts do not wander around what it would be like to sit in traffic in yet another city. Well except for what it would be like to have a great infrastructure of mass transportation with true multi rail lines or dedicated divided bike lanes. But in general, NO, my thoughts tend to head towards mountains, oceans, beaches, trails, vistas and the absence of people.
So why travel to Vancouver? For the same reason you travel to Denver, it’s the gateway to the mountains! Plus during the dead of summer in Texas heading anywhere north is a vacation in it’s own. With any new location you do get a sense of excitement and anxiety as you navigate a new town. So we checked out the top highlights from wikitravel and tripadvisor and got to hitting the sites.
