Top definition
A condescending or occasionally lighthearted nickname for Portland, Oregon, which lies to the south across the state border from Vancouver, Washington, and which together form the Portland Metro area. Typically used by Vancouverites, who can consider themselves to live in a suburb of the city. Sometimes used when referencing right-wing attitudes or activities taking place in Portland, as Vancouver is known to be significantly more conservative than Portland.

Bob: "Hey, let's head down to South Vancouver and hit up some food carts."

Jim: "Sounds great! Everything in this town closes way too early."


Kate: "Did you hear that a bunch of neocons were heckling the kids on the streets during Occupy?"

Jane: "Wow, it's like it's been South Vancouver around here lately."
