We don't like to brag, so we'll let Vancouver's most recent awards do it for us:

"North America's Most Liveable City", Economist Intelligence Unit. Vancouver was named the world's third most livable city with the report singling out the low crime rate and laidback lifestyle.

"World's Healthiest Places to Live", Time Magazine. According to Time, "it's hard to beat Vancouver" when it comes to embracing a healthy lifestyle - particularly thanks to the city's mild climate, locally sourced foods, wealth of outdoor activities, healthcare and low-cost education.

"Top Travel Destination in Canada", Travel + Leisure. Widely considered the definitive publication for destination and travel information, Travel + Leisure's annual World's Best Awards is based on reader evaluations of cities across the globe.

"Stanley Park: Top Park in the World", TripAdvisor. Travellers cited Stanley Park as the world's best because of its "mini-forest, beautiful gardens, totem poles and scenic walkways."

"YVR: Best Airport in North America", Skytrax World Airport Awards. Vancouver International Airport (YVR) was named top airport in North America for the fifth year running, and ranked ninth worldwide.
