Vancouver is a thriving metropolis surrounded by natural beauty. With parks, beaches, gardens, museums, art galleries and the second-largest Chinatown in North America, Vancouver lives up to its promise of offering something for everyone. With modern buildings set against green, rolling hillsides, this city is breathtaking; no location offers a more spectacular view than Stanley Park - with a zoo, aquarium, totem poles and honking geese. A short walk from the park leads to Robson Street, which offers the town's best window-shopping. Stores with European flavor share the avenue with delicatessens and tea rooms ready to serve. As architectural heart of the city, Robson Square features a central plaza with a food fair and an old provincial courthouse, which now houses Vancouver Art Gallery. Be sure to stop at 8 Pender St. - "the narrowest building in the world." Other points of interest include the Museum of Anthropology; Japanese-style Nitobe Memorial Garden; and VanDusen Botanical Garden. Capilano Canyon is site of the world's longest and highest suspension footbridge.

8/31/2022

Cambridge Bay is located on the southeast coast of Victoria Island in the Region of Nunavut, Canada. The natives named the area Ikalultuutiak meaning “good fishing place.” The area has long been inhabited by Paleo-Eskimos who hunted caribou and seals in 1800 BCE. 500 years ago, the modern Inuit have populated present day Alaska.  In 1839 when the town was first visited by Europeans, the area has since been renamed honoring Prince Adolphus, Duke I of Cambridge. By the 1920’s trade became rampant and settlements slowly developed welcoming the Anglican & Roman Catholic missionaries that built schools and municipals soon after.



Visitors can enjoy the annual winter season outdoors hunting, dog sledding, camping and viewing wildlife. Visitors can fish the innumerable lakes and ponds, hike Ovayok Territorial Park or go birdwatching at Queen Maud’s Migratory Bird Sanctuary.
