Seattle looks very pretty but I think Vancouver has a more picturesque look, and it is cleaner.

Looks like a clean, cold, Rio of the north.

COLDER in caps like it's Edmonton or something

Vancouver inland outer surburbs have almost identical average monthly highs to Seattle.
Vancouver International Airport, where the weather station is located is on Sea Island
in Richmond, BC, not technically even Vancouver and being near the water stunts the highs
by a degree or two.
Not so for more inland Seatac airport.

Yes, Seattle is slightly warmer, imo not a lot.
Probably a bigger difference between Seattle and Portland, OR.

The mountain is Vancouver is much closer and more impressive. You have a hard time finding mountain views in Seattle.

I think Vancouver is the prettier of the 2 but Seattle is a far more interesting and dynamic city while Vancouver is definitely on the sleepy side.

Both very nice cities but Vancouver, BC wins comfortably imo. Cleaner, more scenic and has a plentiful and wide range of places to dine out at.

Inland Suburbs in Seattle also get hotter too.

City: Hottest monthly high

Vancouver
Burnaby: 21.2 C
Vancouver: 22.2 C
Coquitlam: 22.7 C
Langley: 22.8 C
Surrey: 23.6 C
Richmond: 24 C

Seattle
Seattle: 24.6 C
Everett: 24.7 C
Tacoma: 25 C
Kent: 26 C
New Castle: 26 C
Renton: 26 C
Redmond: 26 C

Portland
Vancouver: 24 C
Beaverton: 27 C
Hillsboro: 27.2 C
Portland: 27.3 C
Gresham: 28 C
Oregon City: 28.7 C

So yes Vancouver and suburbs are colder than Seattle, and Seattle's suburbs are not that much colder than Portland.

I was born in Seattle and lived there for large swaths of my childhood and again as an adult, but I would pick Vancouver.

Cleaner, better kept up, fewer homeless... Not to say that Seattle isnt beautiful; as much as I actually dislike living there, its still pretty nice to look at. But, I think Vancouver shows better overall.
