One of the largest cities in Canada, Vancouver has seen a sharp rise in tourism over recent years. Though partly down to the rich cultural scene the city boasts, it also has something to do with the rugged mountains that loom over the city center. As a result, you don’t have to travel far to experience all that nature has to offer. When staying in a place such as this, it’s a great idea to rent one of the best places to stay. This way, you can enjoy nature to its fullest, even as you sleep. Head to English Bay for stretches of Pacific coast and for whale watching opportunities, and see the unique green space of Stanley Park, which also offers city views. A short way out, Pacific Spirit Regional Park has hiking trails to be explored.
