Indeed, few cities in the world can combine the thriving pulse of a metropolis with the spectacular scenery of oceans and mountains.

In 2010, the world descended upon the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, but this Canadian city doesn't need to throw a major event to get noticed. Indeed, few cities in the world can combine the thriving pulse of a metropolis with the spectacular scenery of oceans and mountains. Spend the daylight hiking and biking, followed by dinner at a slew of family-friendly restaurants.

The city is a great launch pad for a cruise to Alaska or in combination with Whistler or Victoria. Kid-friendly attractions include one of the most majestic parks in any city in North America, Stanley Park, the Vancouver Aquarium, the collection of historic totem poles at the Museum of Anthropology, the Kid's Only Market at Granville Island, and a jaunt to one of the largest Chinatowns on the continent. Give yourself at least three days to see most of the major sites, more if you want to relax a little and feel like a local.
