Vancouver: “Supermodel of North American cities”
Most Vancouverites are used to the press gushing over their city. After all, if you spend even a brief time in Vancouver — particularly on a mild summer day when the entire city seems to be lounging at the beach or hanging out in a cafe — you’ll see that it’s a beautiful place.
Of course, like any major city, Vancouver is not without its problems. Yet as the city gears up to host the 2010 Winter Olympic Games next February, the press gushing seems to be intensifying.
SmarterTravel.com already named Vancouver one of the top five “Destinations to Watch in 2009,” and more recently this article from USA Today dubbed Vancouver “the supermodel of North American cities.”
