Hi -- I just decided to make a career change and will be starting with a company March 1, 2010 in Richmond BC. Am single (with dog) and looking for a fun place to live (rent) that would be relatively close to work but still good for the social life, fun neighborhood with fun/active/outdoors stuff to do. Does anyone have any thoughts on areas. I currently live/own in Denver -- so not sure how the rental $ will translate.

I can't post my website here yet, but I do have a page describing the various neighborhoods in Vancouver if you PM me. Richmond is now served by a new rapid transit line to getting there is a lot easier. The rapid buses from the southern suburbs of White Rock & Tsawassen now terminate there so it is also quite accessible from those. I am actually partial to White Rock a seaside town. Compared to Denver (I have lived there), its paradise. Rents are not cheap anywhere in easy distance of the city. $600 & up. Your best bet will probably be a one bedroom basement suite. There are lots of those in the $600-$800 range, some include power, heat & cable. Richmond itself has a high Chinese population. It is flat and pretty uninteresting. Lots of Asian stores.

You might also consider living across the bridge in south vancouver. Let us know where you ended up! I might be considering a move later this year myself.
