You will arrive at Vancouver International Airport, which is located on Sea Island in the town of Richmond, about 8 miles from downtown Vancouver.

Vancouver enjoys a moderate climate throughout the year, with warmer, dry summers and cool, wet winters. Temperatures in the winter months tend to hover right around freezing, and average temperatures in the warmest months of July and August sometimes reach as high as 90 degrees Fahrenheit. The annual average temperature is just 51 degrees Fahrenheit, and while the city sees a good deal of precipitation, the months of April through October tend to be sunny, making these months an ideal time to visit.
During your stay, you can explore the outdoors by biking, jogging, rollerblading along the Seawall, and soaking up the rays at a local beach, and during the winter months, you can try your hand at skiing and snowboarding on local hills. Professional sports fans might want to take in a Canucks hockey game or a Whitecaps soccer match. The Vancouver International Film Festival, hosted each September and October, is also a big draw for those interested in the art and film scene.
