A Trip down Vancouver with Mary-Jo Braid

Have you ever considered living in Vancouver? Are you considering a move to Vancouver? Did you know that Vancouver was voted the most livable city in the world by the Economist Intelligence Unit, not once but for the second year in a row. Well, now you know.

A Little about Vancouver

Vancouver is ideally located near the ocean and right next to the North Shore Mountains, offering exploration opportunities throughout the whole year. The mountains are ideal for the adventurous types offering up scenic hiking trails and snow sports while for the more relaxed types, the coastline offers up fantastic views and beautiful beaches. This is the ideal location to live because it is surrounded by the mountains and the sea. The metropolitan offers up diverse cultures giving one the best of both worlds in terms of nature and city living.

The People of Vancouver

Considering that this is a relatively new town (established in 1886), the original inhabitants were of Irish, German, British and Scottish origin, but today, that’s a whole different story. Nowadays majority of the inhabitants do not speak English while 30% are of Asian Origin. Everyone has learnt to live together in harmony making the city more linguistically diverse. This is a city for everyone and anyone.

Where to Go while in Vancouver

What can we say, basically the whole city is an attraction, well, give or take a few not so attractive spots. Otherwise, if you are in Vancouver, you might want to consider going for some ice-skating in the many all year ice skating rinks available.  http://vancouver.ca/parks-recreation-culture/ice-rinks.aspx . You may also want to visit the Vancouver Aquarium, http://www.vanaqua.org/ especially ideal on rainy days. You could also consider a visit to the Grouse Mountain for some snowboarding, skiing and all other winter sports.
