So. Recent hockey-related rioting aside, most people agree that Vancouver is a pretty fantastic place. In fact, it’s consistently ranked as one of the most livable cities in the world, and for good reason: combine the laid back vibe of the West Coast with mild weather, gorgeous scenery, locally grown wine, fresh produce and fish, and myriad outdoor activities practically right outside the door of your beautiful glass-walled high rise apartment, and you’ll understand why property values are soaring. It really is the way urban life should be. Really.
