Now, we continue on in our series of what makes Vancouver a unique city. The next four items showcase some of the wonderful parts about living in the city.
#1: Vancouver is a beer lover’s paradise.
If you love craft beer, Vancouver has an eclectic mix of beers for you to try. The annual Vancouver Brewfest draws beer connoisseurs from all over the county. There are also a few local breweries that have popped up in recent days, such as Heathen Brewing and Dirty Hands Brewing Company. IPAs, Porters, Blondes, or Ambers – Vancouver offers a range of beers that exemplify the unique flavors of Vancouver.
#2: Farm-fresh fruit & veggies abound at the Vancouver Farmer’s Market.
One of the best parts about living in the Pacific Northwest is the beautiful scenery that surrounds us. Mountains, beaches, and beautiful farming fields are all over. And when the warm summer months kick into high gear, farm-fresh produce abounds at the local Farmer’s Market. There is truly nothing like fresh, local berries or veggies straight from the farm to your table.
#3: Outdoor concerts are everywhere!
When the weather is warm, music lovers everywhere can find outdoor concerts all over the city. The local Farmer’s Market offers music every weekend, Esther Short often hosts a summer concert series, and even other parks in Camas and other surrounding areas have outdoor concerts that are free to the public. Get ready to rock!
