The North Vancouver video can be viewed here It will take you on a journey starting at the oldest neighbourhood, the Lonsdale Quay in Lower Lonsdale, then heading north west over to Edgemont Village. From here the tour continues up to the Capilano Suspension Bridge and then even higher up the hill to the landing at Grouse Mountain.
The Lonsdale Quay is home to over 90 speciality shops and services, some which include fresh locally grown produce, popular fish market, international cuisine, soup shop, homemade Italian goods, fresh cut flowers, aromatherapy shop, locally owned and operated boutiques, a kids play area and even a hotel and spa.
There are a number of new developments currently underway or recently completed in the Lower Lonsdale area of North Vancouver just walking distance to the Quay. Although already established, this area is very up and coming with a mix of young professionals, empty nesters, couples and singles alike. The new developments on the waterfront are very modern comprised mostly of glass and steel mirroring buildings of downtown Vancouver. It proves to be a door step for those commuting to Downtown Vancouver and only takes a 15 minute relaxing seabus ride across the water to get you there. The view of the ocean and mountains is absolutely breathtaking and this is quickly becoming one of the most popular areas to live in North Vancouver.
Edgemont Village is a community hub in North Vancouverwhere a large number of young families live. The village is only a few blocks long but has a number of quaint owner owned and operated stores, boutiques, hair dresser and barber, galleria, home decorative stores, fresh fish and chocolate shop. The feel here is relaxed and artsy, great for those who are looking for a neighbourhood atmosphere and small town charm.
Next was off to Capilano Suspension Bridge, one of Vancouver’s first tourist attractions. Take a look at the view and watch Christina and Amy cross the 137 meter bridge! Take advantage of the great rates for residents or come and visit on your next trip to Vancouver.
Grouse Mountain is a major draw for residents and tourists. There are so many activities and sights to see for people of all ages. During the summer months you can take a ride up the gondola to check out the gray wolves and brown bears at the wildlife refuge, grab a bite to eat overlooking the entire city, go hiking on the Grouse Grind, go ziplining for those adventurous people, mountain paragliding, or take a mountain helijet. In the winter take advantage of snowshoeing, ice skating, sleigh rides, sno-limo, or enjoy scenic and educational performances at Theatre in the Sky. Many residents in the area go hiking in the nearby trails, Vancouver is home to some of the most active and environmentally friendly people in Canada. Grouse Mountain recently raised the Quiet Revolution on top of the mountain which gives independant, wholly sustainable energy helping to produce 20-25% for the mountain.
