Dig a little deeper and you'll uncover even more to love about the city, from shopping, dining and nightlife to unique districts, fun family attractions, and outdoor recreation. Please arrive one hour early to allow time to clear customs and board the train. Vancouver is an international city with a friendly vibe, and was also host of the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
