Why Vancouver Is Always An Attraction For Tourists

Author : Shane Kruger

Vancouver is the most famous and popular city of Canada. Vancouver is also known for its lots of attractive and beautiful sceneries. There are many people who visit this city every year. Vancouver is always a great attraction for tourists. Here are some reasons of why this city is so much popular in all over the world.
1) Exciting and Attractive Atmosphere:
First and the primary reason of why mostly visitors visit this city is because of its climatic conditions. Whether you are visiting this city in winter or summer this city offers you lots of excitement and adventure during your vacations.
2) Surfing:
Surfing in Vancouver is also a great entertainment. Many people visit this city because of its surfing adventure. A 24 hour board rental in Tofino is going to set you back $20-25. If you're a complete Newb to surfing, there are a variety of lessons you can take. Pacific Surf School and Surf Sister both offer lessons. Pricing varies, but expect to pay $65 for a Surfing 101 class, while a multiday course is going to cost roughly $175. A wetsuit would be one of the smarter decisions you could make for your day on the surf, water is cold year round. So unless you're accustom to the frigid waters of the North, or maybe just drank too much of that Wine from Reason 1, don't be foolish. Take the wetsuit.
3) Whale Watching:
One of the more touristy things you can do on the Island. But well worth it if the whales decide to make an appearance. From May to October, boat after boat filled with eager tourists leave Victoria in search of the megalithic creatures. Should Moby Dick bail on your group, try not to cry, or cuss, or pollute the sea, normally the Whale Watch Tours include a visit to the haunts of Elephant Seals and Sea Lions. Not quite megalithic, but chubby none-the-less, and well worth the day out. Expect to pay $80-90 on a Whale Watching Tour.
4) Scuba Dive:
Vancouver Island has several world renown Scuba spots. Jacques Cousteau himself said "Vancouver Island has the best temperate water diving in the world and second only to the Red Sea". Though a little pricey for the everyday backpackers budget, if you've got the money, and Scuba is your vice, dive in (Oh yea, I went there) - Vancouver Island is home to several famous Artificial Reefs. Including The Saskatchewan, a 110m ex-Canadian Navy destroyer escort (75,000 %2B dives) & The Cape Breton. Check out Diving BC for more information on dive sites & costs
5) Vancouver Accommodation:
Vancouver accommodation is so much popular in all over the world. Here you will find luxury and furnished suits, condos, Vancouver vacation rentals and apartments. Whether you are staying here for long term or short term Vancouver offers you different types of luxury and standard Vancouver vacation rentals for your stay.
6) Wine:
Last but not the least; Wine is also another specialty of this city. Vancouver Island will not only educate, it will also open your eyes to the colorful community of Wine-growers, Wine-Enthusiasts, and Wine-Drinkers out there. This place has the longest grape-growing season in Canada. If the taste tests aren't enough, and total emersion is what you're after, check out the three-day Cowichan Wine & Culinary Festival.
