FC: Visit Vancouver by: Haley Priest |

1: 2.6 million citizens live in Vancouver. It is the third largest city in Canada. Vancouver is the West Coast's busiest port. The city is known for it's great beauty. |

2: In 1792, George Vancouver explored the Burrad Inlet, the city's shores today. In 1858 the gold rush of the Fraser River brought thousands of people to the area. In 1888 Stanley Park officially opened. |

3: Vancouver has many attractions but these are the must sees. Capilano Suspension Bridge, Vancouver aquarium, and Vancouver's lookout. The city's number one attraction is Stanley Park horse drawn tours. Old fashioned horse drawn carriages going through Stanley Park. |

4: A great historical site would be the museum of Vancouver. You could learn all about the history of the city in just one day. |

5: Other activities you can do are fishing, hiking, and camping. Whale watching is another great family activity. |

6: The Vancouver art gallery is a great place for all the artsy people. You could spend all afternoon looking around the gallery. |

7: The city is bordered by the Burrad Inlet, Vancouver's main harbor. The English Bay is the western edge of Vancouver's downtown core.The city is located south of British Columbia in the west corner. |

8: Vancouver's weather is mild year round. It ranges from high 70's in the summer to low 40's in the winter.There is no specific time of the year to visit. Basically you only need to pack warm, waterproof clothing. |

9: Most of the city's population speak English as either a first or a second language. The other population speaks French.Vancouver has all types of restaurants but they are known for their seafood. |

10: When traveling around Vancouver, most of the city is within walking distance. A easy trip to the transit system or a quick ferry ride is also a great way to travel around the city. |

11: Journal #1 | I landed in Vancouver today! It is the on of the prettiest cities I have ever seen. The people here are so friendly, a lady at Starbucks told me that I have to go to Stanley Park for horse drawn tours. Thats where I plan to go tomorrow! I better get some sleep! Tomorrow will be busy! |

12: Journal #2 | Today I went to Stanley Park horse drawn tours. They don't call it Vancouver's number one attraction for nothing! It was so pretty! The horse were so cute and you get to go through the beautiful Stanley Park. I'm about to go out to eat at a great seafood restaurant. Vancouver is known for their great seafood. I hope it will be good! |

13: Journal #3 | The seafood restaurant was great! Today is my second to last day, so I want to get as much as possible. I am going to go shopping to find me a souvenir today. I want to find a cute sweatshirt that says Vancouver on it. Then I want to go to the museum of Vancouver. I get to learn all about the history of the city. I have to get going! |

14: Journal #4 | Today is my last day. I am very sad that I have to leave tomorrow. I plan on going whale watching today. I have heard nothing but good things about it. Then I will go to my last dinner in the city. I am going to a new Italian place. All of Vancouver's food has been amazing so I'm sure I will like the restaurant. Then I will sleep in the city for one more night. |

15: Vancouver and Overland Park are very different but also similar. Vancouver is way larger than Overland Park.Both Overland Park and Vancouver have living residents in the city. Vancouver, unlike Overland Park has water surrounding the city. |

16: This journey has effected me because it was my first time I have traveled outside of the country. Also it was the first time I have been to a major city. I have never experienced the big city atmosphere before. It showed me how large the world really is.I realized how small of an aspect Overland Park is in the world.Also how many other cultures there are in the world. |

17: If you travel to Vancouver, you will not regret it. Vancouver is almost overwhelming from it's great beauty. "The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page." |
