Travel Tips for North Vancouver
Shop at Lonsdale Quay
The easiest way to get to North Vancouver from downtown Vancouver is to take the SeaBus from Waterfront Station to Lonsdale Quay. Once at Lonsdale Quay, you will see that it is not only a ferry terminal but a busy market centre on the water. My Irish friend from Dublin, Aisling, visited me the day before my birthday and we had a delightful lunch on the patio of the Cheshire Cheese Inn (a nearly-authentic English-style pub and restaurant), where were able to catch up on 2 years' worth of gossip about the peope we studied with in Austria.
Grouse Mountain (North Vancouver)
Since 1926, local skiers have been flocking to Grouse Mountain, however, instead of just one run, skiers today can choose from 24 runs. Plus, there's a Terrain Park, equipment rentals for all the activities, night skiing, snowmaking facilities and a ski and snowboard school. Fantastic Vancouver city views from the gondola, and day and night from the slopes.
North Vancouver, my hometown
"Home sweet home"
North Vancouver is a very natural place, that is if you look past all the traffic and brand new buildings. We have the ocean, (or the harbour) and the local mountains which loom above. The three main local mountains are: Seymour, Grouse and Cypress (or Hollyburn) all will allow skiing in the winter, and some winters, the conditions are almost perfect. In the summer, the hiking up these mountains can be fabulous, and the fact that they are so close from the city of Vancouver, makes them all that much better for getting too. Grouse Mountain has the Skyride, it's a cable tram which will get you to the top in just minutes flat. There is a fantastic restaurant up here with a fantastic view of the city of Vancouver, and at night especially, it's an amazing view with all the lights. Downhill and cross country skiing are perfect here, when the conditions are right, and many winters, the conditions are right.
just another day

just another scene when i left Vancouver downtown, along the coast, you can see high buildings around, just move a bit further, you can see how people enjoy their lives: gardening, sun bathing at the balcony...
North Vancouver: City & District on the Mountain
North Vancouver is a both a city and district within the Greater Vancouver Regional District. This is the place where Vancouver's natural beaty really shines. North Vancouver is known for having nice residential areas surrounded by evergreen forests and offering pretty views of Burrard Inlet and beyond. Residents are quite lucky to have properties here as values have risen drastically since the late 1980s. The mountain forests and hiking trails are, so-to-speak, in the backyard.
