Party Like It's 1799 At Vancouver's Bach
Bordered by the Coast Mountain Range and the Pacific Ocean, Vancouver is the heart of Canada's third-largest metropolitan area and the largest city in British Columbia. In the 1870s, Vancouver was founded as a sawmill settlement called Granville. In 1886, the city was incorporated and renamed Vancouver after Captain George Vancouver, a British naval captain who explored the area in 1792. The city boasts Canada's largest port, a thriving arts scene, the Vancouver Canucks NHL team and the BC Lions of the CFL. It played host to the world for the 2010 Winter Games.
