Vancouver is one of the most popular, busiest and ethnically diverse cities in Canada. When it comes to tourism the city has a unique advantage geographically: shielded by the Pacific Ocean on one side and the North Shore Mountains on the other it is a top destination for hikers, snowboarders, and road trippers alike. Vancouver is also home to many wonderful restaurants, museums, and concert venues.

The downtown core can be easily explored on foot, by Skytrain, or even using water taxis. As a visitor, you can spend a few days delving into the local craft beer scene, go on graffiti tours, eat your heart through a diverse variety of cuisines, or simply make it a temporary home for a change of scenery. No matter your reason for visiting, these Airbnbs put you close to the action.
