We took a 1-week trip to Vancouver, B.C. (British Columbia) or Canada as most would call it. My husband was there for an OpenStack forum while my daughter and I tagged along to be tourists. We stayed downtown in hotel near the waterfront. It was a good location as everything was nearby such as shops and restaurants as well as the convention center called “Canada Place”. Vancouver is pretty as it sits on the waterfront and has lots of green park areas to enjoy. The air is fresh and the people are friendly.
