Vancouver - Post Report Question and Answers

Is this a good city for single people? For couples? For families? Why or why not?

This city is good for everyone. The only downfall it has is it is expensive so it is harder for families so you can't afford to do as many things. - May 2017

Yes. - Aug 2015

It's a great city for anyone though living there is expensive for all and for families I understand it can be quite challenging due to uncovered educational and extracurricular activity costs, food and gas prices, etc. I know several Canadians who even make regular trips to Washington for groceries. Eating out is pricey. - Jun 2014

Great for families, especially in the suburbs, with lots of greens, activities, and family restaurants. Downtown seems to cater to the more worldly type, but I cannot really feel any special vibe. - Mar 2012

Vancouver has great restaurants, and there is so much to see and do. It is good for families and singles. - Jun 2010

For all. May be a bit boring for singles. Going out is very expensive. Vancouver has the feel of a provincial backwater city (think Nashua, NH). - Oct 2008
