Vancouver, Canada

I am from Vancouver BC, Canada, and currently live about 20 kilometers east of Vancouver in Coquitlam. Vancouver is in a province called British Columbia - BC for short - on the west coast of Canada. The weather is mild year-round and during the winter Vancouver might get some snow - but within days the snow is usually gone. During the summer the temperature gets to a high of about 25 Celsius.

Vancouver is named after Captain George Vancouver (1757 - 1798) a British Royal Navy officer who explored and surveyed this area in 1791.

Some of the attractions of Vancouver are Stanley Park, Queen Elizabeth Park, CF Pacific Centre Mall, Robson Square, Granville Island Public Market, SeaBus to Lonsdale Quay Market, Kitsilano Beach, English Bay Beach, Science World, Seawall Water Walk.
