Randall Shirley

Randall Shirley is a travel writer based in Vancouver.


As an American who moved to Canada in 2005, Randall sees Vancouver through a traveler’s eyes. She’s a travel writer who spends her time thinking about the city’s 8 million annual visitors, and discovering the best ways to explore the city. A few favorite picks include Grouse Mountain, the Seawall, Gastown, and Canada Place. She believes that Vancouver’s attractions aren’t just for tourists, they’re places for everyone. Randall contributed to TripSavvy until 2011.
