As a Pacific Rim city, Greater Vancouver is also referred to as Metro Vancouver and if you’re not familiar with the area you may consider the multiple municipalities to all just be Vancouver, however you’d be wrong. Banking on to the coast and bumping up to the North Shore Mountains and the sea-to-sky highway to Squamish and Whistler, land is in short supply, high priced and coveted.
Each municipality has its own diverse flavour with the far west coastal living luxury multi-million dollar properties to high rise condo dwellers. Vancouver attracts every culture and demographic from short term tourists, young tech workers, financial wall street types, Hollywood stars and producers, Heritage home lovers, tiny home laneway steads and everything in between. Boaters, skiers, hikers, nature lovers all call Vancouver home.
