I love the weather here. I love rain and cold, so it's perfect. I am also from here, but I am very proud to tell people where I'm from and where I live. Downtown is getting more modern and more fun, and it's right across the bridge from Portland which is absolutely awesome. There's a fine mix of people in the area, making great diversity. Not to mention there's so much nature and good food!

Vancouver is a pretty big city full of fun and exciting things to do! There are amazing dog parks to walk your dog, out standing food places (Mexican food is my favorite) which you will never regret going. There are amazing bar and grill where you can have a great time with friends and family, or just wanna have a fun night out! Everyone you come in contact with you will build a relationship with and remember their face where ever you go. Everywhere you go there are always a friendly face waiting to greet you or just be your friend! Everyone is welcome at our city. So don't be shy!
Vancouver is a busy town with big city amenities. It is conveniently located around many highways. For those who love to travel, you will find this is an excellent location to travel either to or from! Outdoor activities are in easy reach here as well. A world class location for anything from hiking to biking, and with a temperate climate, Vancouver offers fresh air for any of your outdoor activities. Stunning mountain views complete the dream for everyone, whether you want a scenic office view from downtown, or to climb these incredible volcanoes. The greater Pacific Northwest is a popular destination to live, work, and visit, so housing costs continue to climb, but there are many areas in which reasonable costs can still be had. This is the next big thing in excellent places to be, whether you choose to live, vacation, or work in the area: come to Vancouver - you'll love it!
