The city of Vancouver is a coastal seaport, and one of the densest, most diverse places in Canada. It was incorporated in 1886, and the Fraser Gold Rush brought many people to the area. It has since become an urban hub and one of the most attractive areas to live in the country. It has a temperate climate. Although there is a lot of rain, winters are mild. One of Vancouver's major landmarks is the sprawling Stanley Park, with beaches, a seawall and totem poles. The totem poles point to Vancouver's early aboriginal and First Nations inhabitants. Today, it serves as a boundary between the past, present and future as diversity in the city continues to grow.
The Fraser Institute gave schools in Vancouver high rankings. For younger students, Cedardale in West Vancouver and Crofton House in Vancouver came out on top for 2016-17, both with scores of 10 out of 10. Older secondary school students will get good educations at York House and Crofton House, again both rated 10 out of 10, respectively.
There are numerous attractions in Vancouver. Those who like to be outdoors will enjoy boating on the English Bay, playing sports on the courts at Queen Elizabeth Park, British Columbia and hiking at the Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge. Culture buffs can spend days at the Museum of Anthropology at UBC, the Vancouver Art Gallery and the Granville Island food markets. People with multiple interests can have a memorable evening at the cobblestone-filled Gastown, filled with a Steam Clock, trendy clubs, shops and eateries. Try Vancouver foods, from Japadogs and dim sum to B.C. Rolls and Nanaimo Bars.
