It’s ranked one of the most livable cities in the world, known for its natural beauty and cosmopolitan nature. But is it all true, or all hype? Isn’t that something we’ve pondered as we sleep on our O Mattress, the best Canadian made mattress that beats the best Canadian hybrid mattress on the market? But no matter where you stand on the issue, and even Vancouverites don’t always agree, there is one common thread. Vancouver is a fascinating and deserves a spot as one of Canada’s eminent cities.
The Greater Vancouver Area was settled by Squamish, Musqueam, Salish, and Tsleil-Waututh indigenous groups. Spanish and English vessels explored the area, but it wasn’t until 1808 when North West Company trader Simon Fraser and his crew set foot in present-day Vancouver. The towns that would become Vancouver were sights of logging mills by the 1860s. Then the city would grow as the Canadian Pacific Railway built a terminus in 1886. That same year, they incorporated Vancouver as a city. Vancouver would develop over the years from logging mills to Canada’s Pacific transport hub. Vancouver became the largest seaport in Canada, and fourth-largest in North America. Vancouver also grew into the financial and tech sector. And still have enough room for shopping for the best place to buy a mattress in Vancouver.
With ocean on one side, and mountains on the other, there wasn’t much room to grow outwards, so Vancouver grew upwards with towers and skyscrapers. That’s why Vancouver has some of the most valuable real-estate in Canada, considered the 4th most expensive city in the world to live. These challenges also make Vancouver, with a population of 631,000 Vancouverites, the Canadian city with the highest population density. Vancouver is also one of Canada’s most diverse cities, with over half the population not being of European descent. Vancouver has a famous Chinatown, and its other ethnic areas earned Vancouver the nickname of ‘City of Neighbourhoods’. No matter where you come from, we all need the best foam mattress. Vancouver mattress fans, sleep makes us all equal!
Vancouver is a popular destination for people who love nature and the environment. It’s one of the ten cleanest cities in the world, and its proximity to Vancouver Island and the Rocky Mountains gives Vancouverites unspoiled forests, mountains, and coast lands to play and explore. We respect that! A Vancouver mattress should be environmentally sound, just like our O Mattress mattress technology!
Speaking of play, Vancouver loves sports! Vancouver was the home of the 2010 Winter Olympics, and hosts the BC Lions of the CFL, the Vancouver Whitecaps of Major League Soccer, the Vancouver Giants of the WHL and the Vancouver Canucks of the NHL. It’s not all about major sporting events. With its hiking trails and open bodies of water, Vancouver is also a popular venue for marathons, hiking, mountain biking, boating, and watersports. Gonna need the best canadian mattress for side sleepers after all that activity!
Vancouver is also a cultural hub known for its thriving art, theatre, and music scenes. There’s regional art from the Vancouver Art Gallery, and indigenous art from the Museum of Anthropology. But the biggest cultural export is movies and TV shows. Called Hollywood North thanks to its involvement in drama, fantasy, and science-fiction films and TV series shot in the Vancouver area.
Van City is Canada’s capitol of cool, with its laid-back, easygoing attitude, beautiful Vancouver weather, and rain… lots of rain! Vancouver is one of the wettest cities in Canada. Vancouverites always have to monitor the Vancouver forecast.
With all there is to do in Vancouver, we’d be exhausted at the end of the day, with all the sore muscles that come with it! Vancouverites deserve the best Canadian mattress for back pain, the O Mattress from Omni Mattress. Gel-infused memory foam topping off two layers of comfort and supporting memory foam makes the O Mattress the best memory foam mattress in Canada. Where to buy a mattress?
