If you’re still not convinced, here’s a look at five ways you can live your best life in North Vancouver.
Immerse yourself in the great outdoors
When it comes to nature, the North Shore has it all. You’re never far from a stroll by the water, a beautiful park, or a walk through the lush forest where you’ll find hiking trails such as the Baden Powell Trail, Spirit Trail, and Kennedy Falls. And if adventure sports are your passion, you can take on the North Shore’s many mountain bike trails during spring and summer.
The Capilano River, Klahanie Park, and Barbour Park are merely steps away with plenty of scenic riverside and forested walking and cycling trails. Not to mention the fact that you can go hiking at Grouse Mountain, Cypress Mountain and Mount Seymour in the summer, and ski there during winter. There’s literally something for everyone in North Vancouver.
Live the West Coast lifestyle
Discover what it really means to live on the West Coast in North Vancouver. With options to take transit, drive, cycle, or walk, to most places you need to go, you’ve got a lot of choice with maximum convenience in this part of Vancouver. If you are working downtown, you can easily commute from North Vancouver and enjoy the best of both worlds, working in the bustling city and living in tranquillity. Further north, you can explore Edgemont Village, Capilano Suspension Bridge, Capilano Reservoir, Parks, and the Salmon Hatchery.
Explore the local food scene
You don’t have to sacrifice the things you love when you live in an idyllic setting like North Vancouver. When it comes to entertainment, you’ll be spoiled for choice.
Lower Lonsdale has a variety of restaurants and bars to try such as PIER 7 Restaurant + Bar, Burgoo Bistro, Anatoli Souvlaki, and Tap and Barrel. In West Vancouver, you will find The Village Taphouse at Park Royal, Earls at Ambleside, and The Beachhouse Restaurant at Dundarave. If you’re a doughnut fanatic, there’s no question that Honey’s Doughnuts in Deep Cove should be on your list — prepare yourself for the mother of all sweet treats.
Make the most of local amenities
To truly live your best life in North Vancouver, you’ve got to make the most of the local amenities around you. This includes visiting the iconic Lonsdale Quay and the spring-to-fall Shipyards Night Market. You’ll find one of BC’s largest shopping locations, Park Royal, with over 200 shops, restaurants, and cafes and services from Sport Chek to Aritzia, Whole Foods to YYOGA and BC’s only Simons. There’s also a brand new Cineplex Cinemas & VIP theatre that is perfect for date night after a bite at Cactus Club or Trattoria.
