North Vancouver

View of North Vancouver

North Vancouver(pronounced “Vancoover”) is the community that you see across the water when you’re in Stanley Park. Actually you see both North and West sections of the city

To get there you have to go over the Lions Gate Bridge unless of course you take the seabus over. The bridge has just recently been resurfaced and brought to a higher level of strengthening which is part of the cities earthquake preparedness program.

The Lions Gate Bridge is kind of the divider between North Vancouve and West Vancouver.

View of North Vancouver

From Prospect Point in Stanley Park you’ll get a great view of North Vancouver and West Vancouver ...and the two communities together are called the North Shore.

Some of the lower mainland’s most popular attractions are on the North Shore.

There’s the Capilano Suspension Bridge which is a plank and rope bridge 230 feet (70 meters) above a canyon and not for the faint of heart...

and Grouse Mountain a local ski hill that you can go up by gondola or take the grouse grind trail up to the top. It would be bad of me if I didn’t warn you that the grouse grind is quite the athletic challenge and I’m understating the case here.

Being a bit of a shopper I have to mention the Lonsdale Quay market. If you take the Seabus it pulls up right in front of this waterfront market. There’s great shopping here for all kinds of unique one of a kind items and fresh fruit and vegetables.

From theNorth Shore you can keep going west to charming little seaside village of Horseshoe Bay and then hop on a ferry to Bowen Island. This is a nice day trip.

This is also the way you go to get to Whistler the home of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.
