Vancouver aka Hollywood North is all abuzz!

Wherever you look, it’s hard not to miss the myriad of film crews along with their unmistakable convoy of white trucks lining the streets of numerous neighbourhoods signalling that yet another film or television series is being shot in Vancouver.

Celebrating the Spectacular Seasons of Vancouver

Fun Family Bike Ride Around English Bay & Stanley Park

It’s virtually jam-packed with people for the popular New Years Day Polar Bear Swim as well as for the internationally acclaimed Celebration of Light fireworks festival in the summer, but during the late fall/early winter when English Bay in the West End neighbourhood is less crowded does it become an interesting area that is truly worthwhile to investigate.
