Nightlife is good and diverse, even though hip-hop and r&b clubs tend to dominate. They can be avoided, and trendier places like Au Bar and Shine is definitely recommended if you like club and dance music. Before going out, don't miss one of the cheap restaurants close to English bay. When eating, you will be able to see the magnificent view of the sunset over Stanley Park and the bay. And when the NHL season starts of, Canucks is always worth seeing in the new Garage stadion. And of course, skiing is not to be missed. Whistler 1,5 hour away and smaller skiing areas just outside the city will keep you fit.

There's loads of restaurants with every kind of food you can think of, it's hard to name just one. There's loads of stuff to do in Vancouver too and beyond - The North Shore, Vancouver Island, Seattle and DownTown Vancouver.
