Vancouver’s compact downtown core makes it rather easy and accessible to get around. Not only is the city very walkable, but there are multiple ways to get from one point to another, either by bike, car or ferry ride.

Some of Vancouver’s transport options allow locals to commute in interesting ways – take for example an Aquabus, which crosses over False Creek, or a seaplane, which takes off from the Burrard Inlet.  With all these options, visitors should experience a Very Vancouver commute as well!

Here are 8 ways Vancouverites commute around the city, as told by Instagram:

Filming in Vancouver: Jim Carrey, Sonic the Hedgehog, You Me Her, and Resident Alien

Jim Carrey stars in the film adaptation of Sonic the Hedgehog.

So who’s feeling super excited to find out what’s going on in Vancouver’s screen scene (besides the guy above)?

Trick or Treat: Five Horror-fests Filmed in Vancouver

The Internet is buzzing about the upcoming remake of chill-inducing horror film Child’s Play, starring the doll that haunts every viewer’s dreams. Cautioning the dangers of digital hacking – such as a harmless toy transforming into a knife-wielding monster – the production stars Aubrey Plaza as the mother who unknowingly gifts her son the deadliest doll ever made, and Gabriel Bateman as the little boy whose new best friend can’t wait to slay him.
