Vancouver: Above the City by Nightcitylights Vancouver: Above the City by Nightcitylights
Canada, British Columbia, Vancouver, August 10, 2011

Vancouver is a coastal seaport city on the mainland of British Columbia, Canada. It is the hub of Greater Vancouver, which, with over 2.3 million residents, is the third most populous metropolitan area in the country, and the most populous in Western Canada.

Vancouver's Downtown is a unique place. Situated on the coast, it is surrounded by mountains. Numerous seaplanes and boats, containerships and ferries go here and there in the harbour all the time. Vancouver's skyline is said to be one of the most beautiful among modern cities.

"Youíre gorgeous, baby, youíre sophisticated, you live well...Vancouver is Manhattan with mountains. Itís a liquid city, a tomorrow city, equal parts India, China, England, France and the Pacific Northwest. Itís the cool North American sibling." Ė The New York Times

"Vancouver is a city unlike any other. Wherever I look, I see water or mountains -- or both. And everyone looks so healthy." Ė The Daily Telegraph (UK)

I'm considering moving to Vancouver in the future. I was wondering if you could give me some insight on how DAILY life is in Vancouver.

I currently live in Las Vegas, NV, USA.

From what I've read, Vancouver is a beautiful and safe and clean and a nice place to live. Seafood is awesome.

NEGATIVE things I've heard is that it's EXPENSIVE to live there and it's cloudy/stormy weather 75% of the year.

Please fill me in on the details.
