A stunning, full-colour souvenir book highlighting Greater Vancouver's best attractions.

With its spectacular setting between sea, mountains, and sky, Vancouver is one of the world's most beautiful and liveable cities. This showy keepsake, featuring stunning photographs, captures the diverse neighbourhoods and attractions of Vancouver, and its outlying areas, in their best light. Discover Point Grey, the downtown area, and the beaches, parks, and markets all along the city's encircling seawall. Visit the stunning artifacts in UBC's Museum of Anthropology, the vibrant art and food scene at Granville Island, and the Vancouver Aquarium in the heart of world-famous Stanley Park. Then head across the Lions Gate Bridge to the North Shore and check out the Capilano Suspension Bridge, Grouse Mountain, and the quaint seaside community of Horseshoe Bay. Other highlights include the tony Westside neighbourhood of Kerrisdale, the historical fishing village of Steveston in Richmond, and the eclectic shops and eateries of Mount Pleasant.
