When the Thermometer Sizzles—English Bay, Vancouver
ANCOUVER, the  largest  city of
British Columbia, and one of the most
important of the North Pacific Coa&,
lis  beautifully  situated on Burrard
Inlet, a long arm of the Pacific Ocean that forms
a nearly landlocked and fully sheltered harbor.
Facing it across this harbor is the sharp profile
of a magnificent mountain range; and with its
imposing   business   secftion,   its   busy   docks,
its fine shopping streets
and   its   flower-garbed
residential suburbs that
have overflowed north
across   the   Inlet   and
south towards the Fraser  River,   Vancouver
is    one   of  the   great
metropolitan centres of
Commercially, it is a
very important seaport,
with a vast trans-Pacific
trade; it also  has im-
i SeaMe
mense lumbering, mining,  agricultural,   shipbuilding  and  manufacturing interests.
Vancouver is a favorite summer city, for
its mild climate, floral luxuriance and closeness
to water makes life pleasant. There are many
bathing beaches, parks, boulevards, automobile
roads, and short and long steamer trips.
Stanley Park, a remarkable forest of almost
primeval   characteristics,   is   situated   within
the city limits. Vancouver has six admirable
golf courses which are
open to visitors.
The Hotel Vancouver,
operated by the Canadian Pacific, is the finest
hotel of the North
Pacific Coa^t, very conveniently situated, and

Motoring The roads around the city are famous for their
excellence, and there are many fine drives,
varying from an hour to a day in time. Amongst them
may be mentioned around Stanley Park—one of the finest
natural parks in the world, containing thousands of
Douglas firs and giant cedars of a most amazing size and
age. The "Marine Drive" takes the visitor through the
best residential parts of the city, including Shaughnessy
Heights and Point Grey, thence to the mouth of the
Fraser River, with its fleets of salmon trawlers, and back
along the coast past bathing beaches and golf links.
Capilano Canyon, a gorge of great natural beauty, in
North Vancouver, is reached over a good road. The
suspension bridge across the canyon, 200 feet above the
roaring waters, is visited by thousands of people annually.
The Pacific Highway, including Kingsway, runs through
Vancouver, connecting up with the maiii American roads
of the Northwest.
l^ew Westminster One very fine motor drive from Vancouver is to New Westminster (12|
miles). This city, founded in 1859 and the third largest
city in British Columbia, is an important one on the
Fraser River, with a very large lumbering industry and a
big shipping business.
Golf and Tennis Vancouver has six good golf courses,
all of them 18-hole courses and all open
to visitors. Guests at the Hotel Vancouver have special
privileges at the Shaughnessy Heights Club, which is
recognized as one of the best links on the Pacific Coast.
There are a number of good tennis clubs. Members of
any recognized tennis club have the privilege of membership in the Vancouver Tennis Club, which has eight
courts and a beautiful clubhouse.
Bathing and Boating There are numerous fine bathing
beaches around Vancouver. The
most easily reached are English Bay and Kitsilano—both
on the street-car line. The scene at English Bay, which
lies at one entrance to Stanley Park, on a sunny afternoon
is one of great animation. Burrard Inlet, English Bay,
and the North Arm are excellent places also for boating.
Vancouver boasts of one of the finest yacht clubs on the
Pacific Coast, which extends a hearty welcome to members of recognized yacht clubs.
Sporting A great variety of fishing can be obtained
around Vancouver. In season, salmon, spring,
cohoe and tyee, steelheads, Dolly Varden, rainbow, cutthroat, and sea trout are plentiful. Within easy reach
of the city there is also wonderful shooting. Grouse, duck,
teal, mallard, snipe, pheasants and partridges are plentiful
in season.- Lulu Island, Sea Island, the North Shore and
Seymour Flats are all within an hour of the Hotel Vancouver.
Steamer Trips Some fine steamer trips can be made from
Vancouver. Chief amongst them, perhaps, is the short trip across the Gulf of Georgia to
Victoria. Then there is a particularly interesting trip
to Nanaimo, a cruise amongst the Gulf Islands, and others
to Comox, Powell River, etc. An excellent circle tour
^ may be made by taking a "Princess" steamer to Vidtoria,
the E. 6? R. train from Victoria to Nanaimo, thence back
to Vancouver by steamer.
Many delightful short excursions are made by
Canadian Pacific Coast steamers during June, July and
August, including one-day cruises to Jervis Inlet, afternoon cruises to the Gulf Islands, etc. These are cruises
run from time to time as occasion permits.
