Planning on a business trip to Vancouver next month. Never been there before so can anyone recommend any special places to visit? How about food - is there a special place recommended to try or special food to enjoy while there?

Vancouver is a great place! My wife and I honeymooned there.

Take the water ferry to Victoria for a day. Cool colonial area that still maintains its British culture. Plus you can check out parliament.

Carderro's on Coal Harbour is a terrific resturant with great food.

A tip when visiting Canada: Use your bank checkcard/debit card for EVERYTHING you can. While all stores will convert cash from US to Canadian, your bank will give you the official, and therefore better exchange rate.

Look out for the panhandlers. They're more polite than in the States, but they are way more aggressive.

Have fun!

Make sure it's really Vancouver BC they are sending you to and not Vancouver Washington!
