The sister city to San Francisco has so many similarities to the city by the bay. It's expensive. It's surrounded by a body of water. And it's very travel friendly with a mix of cultures.
But what makes Vancouver unique is its proximity to the water AND the mountains. A short drive to Whistler is very appealing year round. Not to mention that it's also the home of Scandinave!
I'll be crossing the border soon, right Nate? See you soon, eh.
