So, in case you didn’t know, I actually just took a little trip up to Vancouver. Vancouver it’s a Canadian city and it’s a real gem. Lately, Vancouver keeps being listed on collections of the best cities in the world, and now that I visited it is totally easy to see why. Vancouver has the best of the American Pacific Northwest, combined with the best things about Canada and their values. It’s like nowhere else I’ve ever been, except I guess it’s a little bit like Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco but it is also way different. It’s hard to describe. However, what’s not hard to describe is the best things that I did when I was in the city that made me the most satisfied. So, in case you’re ever planning on heading over to the Canadian West Coast Capital, here are some tips and hints that will help you enjoy your trip.
- Nature. Vancouver is one of those amazing cities that has all sorts of natural elements. Well, I guess I shouldn’t say “one of those cities” because quite frankly I’ve never experienced another city like Vancouver in this way. In the same day you can climb a mountain, go to the beach, and take a walk in the rain forest. If you’re there in the winter, there is amazing skiing that you can do as well, and places to go skating. This is totally unique and it is one of the most Charming things about Vancouver, because it is a super Urban City that gives you the natural wonders that most cities deprive you of.
- Food. The food is absolutely incredible. Especially the sushi. I think that it has a lot to do with the amount of people from the continent of Asia, but there are all sorts of amazing Cuisine options. Like I said though, the sushi is very inexpensive and very high quality, it’s about as good as I’ve ever gotten on this continent!
- Consider buying real estate. Okay okay hear me out, maybe this is just me, but when I really fell in love with this city like this– I feel I would gently consider investing in a piece of property. I called a Vancouver Realtor about this, and explain that I was only a potential buyer, but he was super nice about it and decided to show me some properties that were in the price range that I quoted. Mostly, he showed me Burnaby condos for sale. Burnaby is right beside Vancouver, it is also a big city, and it is connected to Vancouver with all sorts of public transit and things. It’s basically the same city, but it actually has some features that are better than the city itself.
