A mix of traditional single family homes and expanding condominium development means North Vancouver’s economy and community are continuously growing. This area offers a variety of neighborhoods to fall in love with from bustling waterfront city centers like Lonsdale Quay (which features skyline views of downtown Vancouver and a quick 10 minute commute by Seabus) to serene residential cul-de-sacs like Canyon Heights and Edgemont Village. With two local ski hills, Mount Seymour and Grouse Mountain, it is an ideal area for those interested in a natural and active lifestyle. Test your athleticism on the iconic Grouse Grind Hike, and then head to lush Lynn Valley for some mountain biking and more gorgeous forest trails to explore. Or, try kayaking in Deep Cove and spoil yourself afterwards with a delicious treat from renowned Honey’s Doughnuts. What’s not to love?
Nestled into the West side of the North Shore Mountains, charming West Vancouver is the perfect place to call home with its tree-lined streets, esteemed schools, and it’s a highly-valued and active community presence.
