Just minutes from downtown Vancouver, across the Lion’s Gate Bridge or via the SeaBus, the City of North Vancouver rises up from the waterfront of the Burrard Inlet towards the North Shore mountains. North Vancouver is a charming mix of urban amenities and natural beauty. Lonsdale and the Quay Market bustle with shopping, restaurants and condominium residences. The Upper Levels Highway (with access to Whistler to the west and Metro Vancouver to the east across the Second Narrows bridge) divides the more densely populated areas from tree-lined streets of older residential homes. World-renowned natural attractions include Grouse Mountain ski and summer resort, Lynn Canyon Park, and the Capilano Suspension Bridge.
