Vancouver is a land best experienced out of doors, with giant mountains, vast forests, and powerful ocean. The unspoiled wilderness is allowed to run riot, and the Vancouver Island Mountain Range spans the length of the island. The innumerable active adventures to choose from, the many glorious sights to visit, and some of the most beautiful hikes and trails in the world means Vancouver is more of an experience than a destination. The city of Vancouver itself is also a feast for the senses, with a thriving art, theater, and music scene. It also is extremely diverse in so many ways, and is a true melting pot of culture. So sample the best of all of this with these places to stay near Vancouver, and wake up to glorious views, clean air, and a full to-do list!
