33. My province BC is much like your state :P...

We don't have the highway problem but driving here is a bit hairy, or so I'm told by others. I've learned to drive in the city now here so I have nothing to compare it to.

Salmon grilled with lemon.

We have BBQ too but it's more about just being outdoors.

We are out doors crazy. Hiking, running, rollerblading, swimming, skiing, rock climbing, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, everyone is out and about. And here in Vancouver you can do most of these in the same day.

Beautiful mountains, forests and trees are just the backdrop against which our cities are built. We are spoiled that way.

Not everyone knows this but the Southern BC interior is a big wine growing region and we like our wines.

We are a big wine and dine culture much like California. Lots and lots of quality restaurants here in Vancouver.

I think Vancouverites could give you Californians a run for their money when it comes to our weed smoking.

Living expenses here are SKY HIGH!!

While nothing on the scale of California BC has a fairly big movie industry. Lots and lots of TV and film is filmed here.

Lots of beautiful women too, remember we are fitness crazy. Add in the wine and dine and the movie industry and you have a similar mix to Cali. Seems to attract the beautiful women

He's conservative?! Is also a negative thing to hear around here, at least in Vancouver.

Vancouver is very very diverse, 20+% of the population is Asian.

Parking isn't easy to find for the most part. Vancouver is hemmed in by the mountains so we don't have a huge amount of room to sprawl.

We are a northern tech giant as well like Washington and Cali, lots and lots of startups here, lots of money.

Lots of foreign wealth here, lots and lots of rich neighbourhoods with expensive homes.

Vancouver, to a less extent BC at large, is a hip place. Like you being in a band is a fine hobby, but then so is any number of other nerdy past times.
