About Vancouver

Roof Colours

Cradled between the Coast Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, Vancouver is a vibrant, one-of-a-kind city perched right on the edge of nature. As soon as you set your eyes on Vancouver, you’ll understand why its reputation as one of North America’s destination cities is so well deserved. Beautiful in its own right, Vancouver sits on the doorstep of some of the most stunning natural landscapes on the continent.

It’s a city that surprises visitors with a mild climate created by warm Pacific Ocean currents. A city where you can snowboard, windsurf, and golf all in one week. A safe, diverse, and walkable community that is consistently rated as one of the best places to live in the world. And best of all, BC Place is located at the heart of downtown Vancouver’s entertainment district.


Getting around Vancouver is simple thanks to the region’s extensive and easy-to-navigate public transportation system. This includes the unique SeaBus and SkyTrain, both giving riders panoramic views of the city and mountains. A direct SkyTrain trip from Vancouver International Airport (YVR) to Downtown Vancouver takes only 25 minutes. See our Getting Here page for a stress-free arrival.


Metro Vancouver currently has more than 28,000 hotel rooms, around 13,000 of which are within walking distance of the stadium. The downtown entertainment district offers an unparalleled variety of options to suit every guest’s budget and service expectation.


Dining in Vancouver means endless discovery thanks to the city’s celebrated global cuisine. From internationally renowned establishments to hidden local gems, food lovers in Vancouver suffer only from too much choice. The local food culture is embraced at BC Place stadium – where we serve an incredible range of cuisine – from traditional stadium favourites to dishes that will satisfy the foodiest of locavores!


As a highly multicultural city, Vancouver welcomes travelers from all over the world with open arms. Visitors to Vancouver can expect a safe and worry-free experience. We also enjoy a reputation as a very accessible city for travelers with special needs, in large part because all of the regional public transportation is wheelchair-friendly.
