Discover North Vancouver

North Vancouver falls under two distinct municipal jurisdictions - the City and the District…but all of North Vancouver has seen tremendous growth in the past few years - particularly in the urban areas centered around the Lonsdale Avenue shopping district, and thewaterfront hotel and market complex called Lonsdale Quay. The area has attracted people of many cultures who bring a wonderful cosmopolitan flavor to the shops and restaurants of the area. A favorite commute is the Seabus which is like a mini harbour cruise between Downtown Vancouver and the Quay and runs every 15 minutes during daylight hours. There are many interesting shops and kiosks featuring hand-crafted items, fresh produce stands, and seafood, bakery and deli counters, along with a food fair with indoor and outdoor seating at the Market - a place that attracts both tourists and locals.

There has been new interest in developing and making the waterfront areas, with their wonderful views of the Vancouver waterfront, cruise ship terminals and impressive Downtown skyline, more accessible. Evidence of this includes construction of new walkways and many new townhouse and condominium developments in what is referred to as Lower Lonsdale…and an impressive new City Hall and Library complex. In addition to the City proper around Lonsdale, there are a number of communities and villages that fall within the district of North Vancouver including Capilano Heights, Edgemont Village, Pemberton Heights, Lynn Valley, and Deep Cove. Access to Vancouver is by the Lions Gate to the West, and the Iron Workers' Memorial 2nd Narrows Bridge to the East.

North Vancouver has the distinction of being a very livable area for its citizens, but with a number of attractions that make it a great tourist destination as well. There are two ski areas - Grouse Mountain and Mount Seymour that are easily accessible even for a few hours of night skiing after a day at the office. The world-famous Capilano Suspension Bridge continues to be a popular tourist destination. Lynn Valley is a bustling community in its own right and to the east Deep Cove has become somewhat of an artist's retreat with a quaint shopping and restaurant district enhanced by dramatic views of mountains rising above the waters of the cove. Capilano College in the Mount Seymour Parkway area offers a range of courses and is in the process of becoming certified as a University.

Access to good public and private schools, modern indoor and outdoor recreational facilities and natural parkland areas, golf courses and driving ranges, dance and music studios, community arts and performance venues, as well as countless restaurants, shopping and everyday service providers can be found close-by just about anywhere you live on the North Shore. It's a great place to live as a young single, to raise a family or to enjoy your retirement years.
