    So I might be going to Vancouver with my brother this summer, but there's one thing. He was the one who suggested it, not me. I'm not very excited about Vancouver. What makes that city so great?

    Vancouver is like NYC except clean and with nice people.

    Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities I've ever visited. I had a great time on vacation there in 2013. (You should also take the ferry to Victoria and check that out as well).

    Each time I ask this everyone says Vancouver is an incredibly beautiful city, but I'd rather go to Toronto. I like bigger cities.

    Take it from a Torontonian... Vancouver is way more worthy of visiting. Unless you just want to have the gay village experience, in which case Toronto's is better lol.

    Bigger isn't necessarily better. Furthermore Vancouver is a big major city. How much bigger do you need a city to beicon_question.gif

    Loved Vancouver when I visited a few years ago,will hopefully go back soon. Check out Stanley Park, and the Capilano Suspension Bridge. Vancouver is a naturally beautiful city, with the mountains and water as a backdrop. Can't wait to go back.

    So everyone so far suggests Vancouver is worth the visit.

    I didn't point this out but basically my brother said we should go somewhere in the summer. He suggested Vancouver. My ideas are wide. I'm not opposed to going to Canada, but since I hardly ever get to travel I would like to visit the most worthwhile Canadian city. Because of that I also have Toronto and Montréal in mind. And screw Winnipeg, sorry.

    Vancouver is my favorite city in North America.

    Kinda rare around here to see such unanimity of opinion so must be something to it.

    And when you tire of Vancouver, visit nearby Victoria. Very quaint.

    You've also got the Straight of Juan de Fuca to explore, essentially the north end of Puget Sound. I used to camp all around there. Further south, if time allows, you've got Seattle. Even more gay in the Capitol Hill area. Actually, too much to mention it all here.

    Eat at Vij's, the best Indian food!

    Eat at Guu Garlic, friendly Asian place.

    I've been to both (Vancouver many times) and I think Van wins hands down. I thought Toronto was a bit of a concrete jungle. Whereas the backdrop of the mountains tends to distract the eye from any imperfections in downtown Vancouver.

    Montreal beats Toronto hands down.
    I prefer Montreal to NYC actually.

    It starts with a V.

    Not many cities can say that.

    That makes it awesome! icon_biggrin.gif

    Oh and it's in BC, which is the downhill mountain biking capital of the world. I'd give my left nut (and right one) to go ride downhill there...especially Whistler!

    Actually come to think of it, I'll have four days a week off this summer. Don't be surprised if I meet you there. icon_wink.gif

    Toronto is better, but Vancouver is nice. Montreal is "special." If you want the best of both worlds, just visit Toronto/Montreal; it's about a 4-5 hour drive. I don't think you'll have much fun in Vancouver to be honest.

    Poor Winnipeg. LoL! Go Montreal. It is the Canadian gay capital. Vancouver is great too. Nice guys n restaurants everywhere.

    I've been to Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver. I liked Toronto a lot, but I like Vancouver even better. I can't wait to go back to see more of it and do some of the incredible hiking.
