As one of Vancouver’s trendiest neighbourhoods (it’s the birthplace of lululemon after all), Kitsilano has become a haven for the city’s urban singles and young families. It’s home to charming cafes, fashionable shops and a stunning beach with Vancouver’s only saltwater swimming pool. West 4th Avenue is Kitsilano’s main drag and features a bustling nightlife scene with pubs packed with locals, bistros offering killer cocktails, and restaurants serving a variety of cuisines.
Plus, with endless bike routes and very walkable streets, the community is well connected to the rest of Vancouver, including nearby Granville Island, which itself is a top destination for tourists and locals alike. If you want to call Kitsilano your new home, check out this list of developments coming soon to the neighbourhood!
