Old-fashioned guidebooks and new-fangled online guides (like this one!) are particularly helpful for big-picture travel planning. They aim to be comprehensive–but they can never be complete.

How to eat like a Vancouver local: Finch's for lunch

Once you’re actually on the ground you want to be able to zero in on the day-to-day pulse of a place, the micro stuff that locals talk about around the water-cooler at work: the concert they’re looking forward to; the best place to watch a sold-out hockey game; a new restaurant that isn’t living up to the hype.

In Vancouver, BC, there are several sites that locals reliably look to for up-to-the-minute news about their backyard scene. Check them out while you’re in town:

  • For culture vultures: The Georgia Straight & Vancouver Is Awesome
  • For foodies: Yelp Vancouver & Vancouver Foodster
  • For parents: Yoyomama
  • For hipsters: Vancity Buzz
  • For fashionistas: Vitamin Daily
  • For the works: Miss 604
