Foo Asian Street Food restaurant, Victoria, BC, CanadaBritish Columbia’s cap­i­tal city of Victoria used to be dubbed a des­ti­na­tion for the “newly wed and nearly dead.” Yes, it was — and still is — pop­u­lar among both new­ly­weds and retirees, but with a grow­ing high-​​tech indus­try, a pas­sion­ate com­mu­nity of local food advo­cates, and a now-​​vibrant cul­tural scene, Victoria is increas­ingly cool.

And nowhere is the city cooler-​​looking than in this web­site: The Imagination Economy — high­light­ing all the rea­sons why cool folks should live and work in Victoria. Check it out!
