British Columbia’s Pacific Coast city blends ultra-modern skyscrapers and Pacific Rim flair with nature. Just blocks from downtown, you can sea kayak, hike, or bicycle.


Listel Vancover
Delve into the culture of Canada’s First Nations tribes at this smoke-free boutique hotel. Ask for the “Coastal Cool” package: Stay in a room featuring native art; sip Pinot Noir from a local Osoyoos winery; go sea kayaking; and dine at Liliget Feast House, which serves First Nations delicacies. 1300 Robson St. (800) 663-5491

Fairmont Warterfront & Vancover Airport Hotels
These elegant hotels have recycling bins in every room and towel and sheet reuse. At the Waterfront, a compost-fertilized kitchen garden (near the chlorine-free pool) provides fresh herbs. The Airport Hotel offers an entire floor of hypoallergenic rooms with individual air filtration systems. Fairmont Waterfront: 900 Canada Place Way. (877) 441-1414.


Stanley Park
This 1,000-acre urban oasis is laced with hiking trails and circled by a ten-kilometer shoreline path. Cyclists, in-line skaters, joggers, kayakers, birdwatchers, and swimmers flock to the beaches, forests, playgrounds, and story (“totem”) poles located throughout this park.
