'Beautiful, wonderful city': NBA superstar LeBron James makes first visit to Vancouver

He had a baller weekend at the Kendrick Lamar concert and restaurant hot spots.

LeBron James had never been to Vancouver before this weekend, but it looks like had a good time here.

James was spotted around town over the last couple of days, notably at the Kendrick Lamar concert at Rogers Arena on Sunday night. It appears he and his wife, Savannah, were travelling around her birthday (Saturday, Aug. 27) and made Vancouver a part of that. He'd been in Seattle last week for a pro-am game.

On Monday, Aug. 29, the four-time NBA MVP thanked the city for hosting him.

"Vancouver!! Thank you for the hospitality over the weekend. 1st time in your beautiful, wonderful city!" he wrote in a tweet.

While in town, James dined at the award-winning Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar restaurant at the Sutton Place Hotel. Boulevard Executive Chef Roger Ma tagged James in his Instagram story showing the NBA star's order ticket for his meal.

In videos from the concert, fans spotted James dancing to a bunch of Lamar's songs and clearly enjoying himself.
