Vancouver’s spectacular airport was just named the top airport in North America. That underscores the point however, as airports are great for connections (no pun intended!). You’ve got a largely captive audience of business people, going elsewhere but going nowhere (thanks to flight delays, overbooking, etc.), and great opportunities to chat and engage. YVR makes it a richer experience with great native art, and a refreshing stream and waterfall. Did I mention that fabulous wood?
