There are few more timeless combinations than rich people and waterfront property, and this skinny strip of shoreline along Marine Drive in West Vancouver, offering a sweeping view of the Georgia Strait and downtown, delivers in spades. Known for being a retirement-friendly area, residents here are more likely to choose a Caribbean vacation over Europe or Asia, they ski less than any of their peers in the top 5 richest neighbourhoods in B.C., and are staunch Conservative voters, with 60% voting Tory.
