Canada's third-largest city (and North America's third most densely populated) is located between the Pacific Coastal mountains and the Pacific Ocean.
Described by the New York Times as "Manhattan with mountains", majestic peaks, sparkling ocean, rainforests and beautiful foliage all four seasons make Vancouver one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It's modern and travel-friendly with a unique mix of cultures (in fact, 52% of people living there don't speak English as a first language). The Pacific Northwest climate, safety and friendliness, and energetic restaurant and nightlife scene are other features thatmake this such an appealing city - consistently ranked one of the most livable in the world.
Its mild climate and close proximity to ocean, mountains, rivers and lakes make the area a popular destination for outdoor recreation, providing plenty to see and do on your RV road trip. Vancouver has over 1,298 hectares (3,200 acres) of parks, and several large beaches, many adjacent to one another (including a freshwater beach at Trout Lake).
What a paradise for adventurous RVers - within a 20-to-30-minute drive from downtown Vancouver are the North Shore Mountains, with three ski areas. Mountain bikers have created world-renowned trails across the North Shore. There's also plenty of opportunities for whitewater enthusiasts.
Vancouver also is the home port for Alaska cruises May through October if you felt you needed another adventure after your RV holiday!
With quick and easy access to Whistler Resort, the Canadian Rockies, Victoria, Vancouver Island, and of course, endless year round water and land sports, Vancouver is the perfect base from which to rent an RV and discover Canada by motorhome.
