Working in Vancouver
I am a native Vancouverite, and have witnessed many changes in my hometown due to inevitable growth. What I love about my city is the beauty first and foremost. Mountains, rivers, beaches, desert, we have it all! Sadly, too many people are moving here which is causing a housing shortage and escalating rent prices. With all the building, the pastures and its inhabitants are disappearing and the wildlife is becoming displaced. But it is happening everywhere, so I choose to stay in my beautiful city and enjoy all the new shops, restaurants, pubs and wineries that growth creates.
A fantastic place to grow up! Great communities, schools, and natural beauty. Not as diverse as other suburbs of Portland (think Beaverton, Hillsboro, and Tigard). Commuting to downtown Portland can take anywhere from 20 minutes to over an hour at peak times. If you love the hipster vibe of Portland but want to live in the suburbs, Vancouver is your spot.
I really enjoy Vancouver. I live in a good neighborhood and feel safe, which seems rare in somewhat metro areas. The area I’m in has beautiful nature and scenic views, but I’m also very close to shopping centers and recreational activities. It’s the best of both worlds! The worst part of it for me is the traffic and commute since I go to school in Portland. That’s rough, but overall it’s been worth it.
