Offices, hospitals, hi-rises, gyms, museums, parks, nude beaches, a forest and a university. What else do you need?

“A beautiful University Campus”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

It is worth spending some time to visit this top grade university in British Columbia. The view can start driving along the Marine Drive . You can walk around to enjoy the different scenic spots. Leave by the entrance leading you to Vancouver around the 4th Street to look at the shops there.

“University in a Spectacular Setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

Canada's major western university with lots of interesting architecture demonstrating the evolution of a big university over more than 100 years - and all in a great geographic location but make sure it's a sunny day as this is a crummy place in the rain. Take in the Museum of Anthropology and the UBC Botanical Garden on the same trip.
