It doesn't matter whether you're coming to stay in a Vancouver holiday let on a romantic break, a historic getaway or an outdoor adventure holiday, you'll always find what you're looking for nearby. There's a reason why this city is voted one of the top destinations for travellers, year on year.

In fact, there's plenty to do closer to your Vancouver holiday rental, like kayaking along the harbour or cycling along the water's edge in Stanley Park.

How to get around

Getting around Vancouver is a breeze

If you've nabbed one of the Vancouver holiday lets in the downtown area, you're in luck. It's one of the most walkable cities in Canada and you'll have no trouble hitting the attractions or the shops on foot. That said, there's plenty more to see further out, but thankfully, there are always taxis to be hailed. Alternatively, score yourself one of the rentals at the airport so you can have the freedom to explore the city and the surrounding countryside at your own pace. Then there's the clean and cheap public transport, like the TransLink buses or the overground rapid transit trains.

Food & drink

Sample the world's cuisines on the doorstep of your holiday let

More than 40% of Vancouver's population hails from outside Canada and when you get such diverse residents there's only one outcome – mouthwatering cuisine. You can hardly walk down any of the main streets in the city without tantalising aromas catching your attention and, if you follow your nose, you'll have no trouble scoring some of the most authentic Indian, Filipino and Vietnamese food this side of the Pacific. Throw in some of the most enviable produce in North America – both from the land and the sea – and there's no doubt you're going to eat well.
