Assuming you mean Vancouver, BC in Canada and not the one in the states.
It all depends on what you like to see/do/experience.Here are some sites:http://www.tourismvancouver.com/visitors/
*Official tourism sitehttp://www.vancouver-bc.com/events
*Info for organized eventshttp://www.straight.com/timeout/search/events/
*Local "social event" weekly newspaper (hardcopies can be found everywhere in the DT area)http://www.foodvancouver.com/
*Pretty good general listing of restaurants with relative infos, though use http://dinehere.ca/
to check for reviewsIf you got time for tours/road trips:
- Highly recommend venturing through the Rockies (Lake Louise, Banff, Jasper, etc)
- Whistler Resort
- Vancouver Island (Victoria - Picturesque city; Tofino - Beach & Surfing; Port Hardy - Fishing & sometimes you see wild killer whales simply swiming through the striaght)
- Okanagan (fresh fruits & wineries)
If you don't know already, Davie Street
in the DT core is the gay area (mainly between Burrard Street & Jervis Street)
Have a great time exploring!
