Life in Vancouver

Situated on the right side of the Georgia Strait in British Columbia, the coastal city of Vancouver enjoys a mild climate, with warm winters and glowing sunshine in the summer.  As the largest metropolitan area in Western Canada and the third largest in Canada,  Metro Vancouver has much to offer.  Life in Vancouver ranges from the multitude of soothing beaches to its urban style in the heart of downtown.  In Vancouver itself, there are many neighbourhoods for all your needs: Yaletown offers an urban after-work social scene, take your yoga to Kitsilano, or head down to Main Street for some delicious cultural cuisine.  The more relaxed suburbs, such as Burnaby and Richmond also have much to offer, so even if you find yourself outside of Vancouver proper, you will feel that life in Metro Vancouver is most definitely a warm balance between an urban centre and a place to take it easy and enjoy the scenery.

Transportation in Vancouver is convenient and many people find that having a car for their commute is not even necessary.  Vancouver is bike-friendly, and there are many options for public transportation.  Once you have settled in, you will find that access to the rotation sites in Metro Vancouver is uncomplicated and accommodating.

There is never a dull moment when you are living in Vancouver.  A little less than two hours away, you can make a trip to Whistler mountain for some skiing in the winter, and in the summer you may find yourself on a ferry towards Vancouver Island for a nice scenic camping trip.  Whatever interests you, Vancouver has it.
