For folks who have not visited Vancouver before, it is Canada's third largest city sitting on the shores where the Fraser River meets the Pacific Ocean, protected by the local North Shore Mountains.  Forty minutes from the Canada-US Border.  Easy access through the International Airport (20 minutes from downtown). 
If you have the time to fit in a longer stay, consider visiting Stanley Park, Capilano Suspension Bridge, the Vancouver Aquarium, or Gastown, or Dr. Sun Yat Sen Gardens or the UBC Museum of Anthropology, or shopping downtown on Robson Street or Granville Island.
