Vancouver top city in Americas

Article content

19 October 2010

The annual Readers’ Choice Award was presented at a ceremony in New York City last week and is the fifth time the city has won the title since 2004.

British Columbia’s Minister of Tourism, Culture and the Arts, Kevin Krueger, said: "This award underscores our efforts to showcase our urban life, arts, spectacular sights and wide range of attractions, which make Vancouver an amazing vacation destination."

"This honour, from the readers of Condé Nast Traveler magazine, will surely encourage more visitors to discover what the city of Vancouver and our spectacular province have to offer."

The poll, which defines the Americas as Canada, Central America and South America, excluding the United States, asked readers to rate cities on a variety of criteria, including culture and sites, restaurants, lodging, shopping, ambience and friendliness.

In 2009 alone, Vancouver was named "the world’s most liveable city" by the Economist Intelligence Unit, "North America’s top destination for international meetings" by the International Congress & Convention Association, and "top city in the Americas" in the Mercer Human Resource Consulting annual quality of living survey.
