Vancouver has countless opportunities for those of us who love exploring the great outdoors, not to mention the breathtaking mountain and ocean views that can be seen from virtually any part of town.
|Eek! Don't look down!|
|What a view!|
|Vancouver's beaches are also definitely worth visiting. At Jericho Beach, you can sit on the sand or play in the waves but either way, you get to appreciate some of Vancouver's natural beauty.|

The beautiful natural setting of British Columbia's West Coast serves as inspiration for some pretty amazing art. Artists often just have to look around them for subjects to paint, photograph, sketch, or sculpt.

Artists among the Haida Nation, one of the First Nations peoples of British Columbia, often have a recognizable style of art. Usually depicting local fauna, many of the pieces refer to cultural stories and legends that have been told for generations.
Happy travels everyone!
