  Vancouver is the largest city in British Columbia. It is situated at the mouth of the Fraser River, and with the ocean views and the backdrop of the North Shore mountains, is arguably one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

The downtown core is the western terminus of CP Rail and CN Rail, and is a deep sea port. The West End is mostly high rise apartment buildings, and adjacent to the down-town business core.  Stanley Park is 1000 acres of mostly treed land. There are two salt water swimming pools in the park, and it is home to the Stanley Park Zoo.
