North Vancouver is a community located on the waterfront north of the Burrard Inlet, situated at the base of the North Shore Mountains.
North Vancouver is a very popular area for tourist attractions, due to the abundance of variety of activities for all ages. Known for its many hiking trails, forests, and lakes, North Van is a highly active outdoor community. Enjoy going for a hike at Lynn Valley Canyon, grab a doughnut from Honey’s Doughnuts in Deep Cove, or go tubing on Mount Seymour in the winter months. North Vancouver is home to several high schools and elementary schools, and has a high population of families. North Vancouver is mainly made up of detached homes, duplexes, and apartment buildings. North Van has recently begun to transform with the development of new high-rise apartments.
A must-do for visitors and locals alike, Grouse Mountain remains one of Vancouver’s most beautiful attractions. Take a gondola ride up to the top, and have dinner at the Observatory while enjoying the breathtaking views of Vancouver below. For those fitness fanatics, hike the Grouse Grind Trail, a 2.9-kilometre trail up the face of Grouse Mountain, commonly referred to as “Mother Nature’s Stairmaster.” and not for the faint of heart. Lonsdale Quay Public Market is a must see destination on the waterfront, and is home to many specialty shops and services. From here you can catch the Seabus, which takes you across the Burrard Inlet to downtown Vancouver.
