Vancouver - Post Report Question and Answers
What are the particular advantages of living in this city?
Close to the states, great healthcare and schools, lots of activities available for everyone. - May 2017
Best city in the world: 22 miles of pedestrian-only sea wall, Stanley park among many other parks, beautiful mountains and beaches, Lynn Canyon hiking, kayaking, 30 minutes to local skiing, 2 hours to Whistler, 8 hours to the Northern Rockies, easy day trips for hiking, rock climbing, etc. This place is ridiculously awesome. - Aug 2015
Vancouver and all of British Columbia = one of the most extraordinarily beautiful places on earth. It offers a nice mix of vibrant urban city with great food and decent cultural activities and every outdoor pursuit you can imagine. Yes, it rains a lot and can be dark/gloomy in winter and beyond (locals call June Junuary) but I learned to do as the Canadians: just get out and go. You can't let it stop you. Proximity to U.S. is a mixed blessing. Driving to Bellingham for affordable goods gets old but, then, I was lucky to have the option, too. Most things are very expensive in Vancouver. - Jun 2014
Scenery. Wherever you look, you see special skylines, horizon, beautiful skies. Lots of wild animals inside the city: racoons, coyotes, bald eagles, even black bears (on the north shore). - Mar 2012
Vancouver is beatiful. Mountains and water, the best of both worlds. Outdoor types will love Vancouver. - Jun 2010
