The city was discovered in 1792 by British explorer George Vancouver. It later burned down and from the ashes came the increasingly modern city we see today. Vancouver is rated the most livable city because of its geographic diversity with it being situated on the Pacific Ocean next to beautiful mountains, however major highway construction was deterred in the downtown area. That’s allowed a more subdued region to come about where walking and cycling to work are common. That may be the source of Vancouver’s growing cultural power.
