Conde Nast names Vancouver “Best City in Americas.” Again.

Talk about doing something right: for the fifth time since 2004, readers of Conde Nast Traveler magazine have named Vancouver, BC the “Best City in the Americas.”

The annual poll, which defines the Americas as Canada, Central America and South America, asked readers to rate cities on a variety of criteria, including culture and sites, restaurants, lodging, shopping, ambience and friendliness.

The 2010 Winter Olympics helped shine an international spotlight on the west coast metropolis, named “the world’s most liveable city” by the Economist Intelligence Unit in 2009.

But the crowds are gone now and Vancouver’s still plenty puffed up with civic pride. Maybe now’s the time to book your flight?
