Metro Vancouver is a coastal metropolis in the Canadian province of British Columbia, situated between mountains and the sea. It is known for having the mildest climate in Canada, and extensive forests and parks provide opportunities for outdoor activities such as hiking, bicycling, inline skating, snowboarding, skiing, mountain climbing, sailing, kayaking, golfing, camping, and much more.
Popular summer daytime destinations include Stanley Park, English Bay, Kitsilano Beach, Granville Island, and Deep Cove. In the winter, it takes less than one hour by transit to go skiing or snowboarding at three different mountains from downtown Vancouver.
