I’m finding myself less interested in living in Vancouver and I’m curious about the options – are any of you reading this site from outside Vancouver? I’d be interested in opinions, both pro and con of other cities and towns.
I’ve lived in Vancouver for my whole life. I’m in my early 30s and have a young family. I have a reasonable income that is portable. I currently rent in Point Grey, I like the proximity to shops and beaches here but would love to find a place that was brighter in the winter, even if it’s a bit colder. I’m just not a big fan of the rainshadow and I don’t care about the mountains that bring the rainshadow so proximity to mountains is unimportant.
I would also love to find somewhere that has less of a junky/ homeless problem. Even here on the westside it seems like the homeless population has doubled in the last couple of years.
Any ideas of good places for a young family to live?
