The airport got its start in 1929 when the city of Vancouver purchased land on Sea Island to replace existing grass airstrips. During World War II, the federal government used the airport's original terminal (now the South Terminal) as an air training station.

Today, the airport has three terminals and provides free Wi-Fi in each section. YVR is frequently described as a trans-Pacific hub because of its location in the Pacific Northwest connecting flights to Asia, Australia, and the Americas.

Vancouver

Vancouver is a bustling seaport city on the mainland of British Columbia, Canada. The dynamic urban center is best known for its scenic vistas, amiable people and mild climate. For business travelers especially, it's helpful to know that Vancouver is one of the most ethnically and linguistically diverse cities in the country, with more than 50 percent of the population speaking a first language other than English. Due to the city's location next to the Pacific Ocean, the nearby mountains and the protection from Vancouver Island, Vancouver experiences less precipitation and more sunshine than BC's other coastal areas. Visitors can expect damp yet mild winters and autumns, and warmer summer and spring seasons.The "Lotus City" is made up of small neighborhoods and surrounded on three sides by water - English Bay and Burrard Inlet to the north, Fraser River to the south. When trying to orient yourself in the city, keep in mind that the streets here generally form a standard grid, with most streets running north and south and most avenues running east and west. The majority of avenues are numbered (1st, 2nd, etc.) with two noteworthy exceptions: Broadway replaces 9th Avenue and King Edward Avenue replaces 25th. All streets, meanwhile, are named.

Things to Do in Vancouver

Vancouver makes for a hotspot-destination for the active traveler. Because it's nestled between lakes and mountains, outdoor lovers can hike, fish, bike, golf and mountain climb. Stanley Park is the the city's No. 1 attraction, boasting 1,001 acres where visitors can learn about the First Nation's totem poles, relax on the beach or dine in a park restaurant. Beyond the park, the Capilano Suspension Bridge stretches 450 feet across a canyon and the Capilano River, Grouse Mountain welcomes trekkers up to thrilling heights, and Wreck Beach (not for families) serves panoramic vistas of the ocean and distant San Juan Islands. Thanks to the temperate weather, many of Vancouver's championship golf courses are open throughout the year.For views of the whole city, head to the Vancouver Lookout, located at the downtown Harbour Centre. Don't forget to soak in island life on Granville Island, one of the most popular spots in Vancouver. Back on the main land, Playland features more than 35 rides and attractions where younger travelers can enjoy a day of thrills.
