closeVancouver is a very young city; it wasn't until after the World Exposition in 1986 before Vancouver changed from a sleepy provincial city to a booming metropolis.
Even today the city continues to expand at a high rate: once abandoned industrial areas have thus turned into fashionable and lively districts such as Yaletown and Coal Harbour.
Random Vancouver Highlights
Coal Harbour, Vancouver
Not much more than a railyard in the 1980s, Coal Harbour has been transformed into an attractive neighbourhood along the waterfront near Stanley Park.
Wall Centre, Vancouver
Wall Centre is a complex of three high-rise buildings, of which the highest held the title of Vancouver's tallest building for seven years until 2008, when it was eclipsed by the Shangri-La tower.
Capilano Bridge, Vancouver
This wood-and-rope suspension bridge spans the Capilano Canyon 70m (230 ft) above the canyon floor. It was originally built in 1889 by a pioneer with the help from local Indians.

In the 1970s this former industrial site was turned into a recreational and entertainment area. The popular island is best known for its indoor public market.
