    Vancouver has numerous beaches, Paris is on a non-swimmable river.

    Paris has a subway, a very good one. I have used it myself

  • About Paris -

    For the record, Vancouver is nowhere near the Rocky Mountains. The Rockies are located east of Revelstoke past the Selkirk and Skeena ranges and run near the British Columbia/Alberta border and continue south to Colorado. The mountains near Vancouver are in fact part of the coastal range and are what divides the coast from the interior plateaus.

    Some additional facts:

    Paris is home to over 3800 historical monuments and is home to 4 UNESCO world heritage sites. It also hosts 33 of the Fortune 500 companies.
    Central Paris is comprised of 20 arrondissements, or districts.
    There are more dogs in France than children.

    The area around Vancouver is considered a temperate rainforest.
    Both Vancouver and Paris are located near a river (Paris being on the river Seine and Vancouver on the Fraser).
