Sean's Take

“What’s cool about Vancouver is that it seems like really dense nature so close to the city. I grew up on the North Shore of Vancouver, close to Lynn Canyon Park, and it's amazing.

Because Vancouver is in the Northern Pacific Rainforest, there are parks where they have old oak trees and you walk in, especially on a rainy day when it’s not crowded, and you’re covered by the canopies and you feel like you’re in Jurassic Park or something. It’s kind of like the Sequoia Trees in California, where it feels like you’re in another world. It feels like you could be a thousand miles outside of the city, but really you’re just 35 to 40 minutes out.”
