Hollywood North
Known as "Hollywood North," Vancouver boasts one of the largest film/television industries in the world, second only to Los Angeles and New York. Like many movie crews, most visitors take a trip to Vancouver for a chance to take advantage of the city's picturesque location. Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the snow-dusted North Shore Mountains, this city allows residents and visitors to ski or snowboard in the morning, and hit up a few scenic beaches in the afternoon. A vacation in Vancouver brings you right on nature's doorstep, a drive away from good mountain biking, snow sports, hiking, sailing, and fishing. For a more urban experience, you can attend a slew of festivals, museum hop, or explore the city's impressive restaurant scene. Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Canada using our trip planner.
