Vancouver is a casual outdoor-oriented city, more about beaches, parks, and yoga classes than grand museums or posh restaurants. Even in the city’s most upscale eateries, there’s no need to dress up; you’ll be fine in smart-casual togs. Vancouver has a significant multicultural population, with a particularly large Asian community (and first-class Asian food!). Expect temperate temperatures year-round – cool in the winter, mild but not hot in summer. Yes, it will rain (except, if you’re lucky, in July and August), and yes, you’ll go out anyway.
