Vancouver Car Free Day: Main St


With over twenty blocks closed to traffic Main Street becomes a walker's paradise unless of course you don't like crowds. In an effort to reclaim public spaces, the City of Vancouver setup Car Free Day in numerous parts of the city.  With live music, great food and artisan markets there was lots to see and do.

Vancouver's Hobbit House For Sale: Hobbits Not Included

Built in 1942  by developer Brenton Lea, one of Vancouver's two Hobbit Houses is up for sale.  For a mere $2.86 million this iconic home can be yours.  Known for it's cedar shingle thatched roof, the Hobbit House is located less than a block from Vancouver's rapid transit Canada Line.  It is located  in the middle of the Cambie Corridor,  a neighborhood in transition. Everywhere you look old houses are coming down to make way for higher density housing. Will the Hobbit House remain standing or be torn down?
