National Geographic includes Vancouver in “Top 10 Beach Cities”


More accolades for cosmopolitan Vancouver. Yes, we’ve come to expect them, but they’re still a nice break Wednesday’s doldrums.

This time, National Geographic listed Vancouver as #10 in their list of best beach cities along with Barcelona, Miami and Santa Monica.

Kitsilano, of course, received a special mention. Read the write-up below.

“Canada’s most adventurous metropolis is home to ten beaches, from the family-centric Jericho to the clothing-optional Wreck Beach, many of which offer commanding views of the Vancouver skyline and majestic North Shore Mountains. Sporty types prefer Kitsilano or “Kits,” a six-minute drive from downtown, for its free tennis and basketball courts, and its super-size heated saltwater pool.”

    It’s -13c tomorrow and we make a Top 10 list for beach cities. But hey, it must be true because they said so right?
