Kitsilano

Description from: insidevancouver.ca

Overview + _
In the ‘60s, beachside Kitsilano was considered Vancouver’s hipster hangout; today, the neighbourhood has flourished into a trendy hub appealing to sun-worshippers, yogis, wellness warriors and shopaholics alike (it’s also the birthplace of global yoga brand lululemon athletica). Kitsilano is a healthy combination of parks, beachfront, the shopping mecca of West 4th Avenue, cozy coffeeshops and eclectic eateries.
Dining and Nightlife + _
Staying true to its hipster roots, Kits is home to one of the city’s oldest vegetarian restaurants, The Naam – but there are plenty of alternative options for healthy, organic and farm-to-table fare, including Aphrodite’s Organic Café, known for organic food and incredible pies; and Sejuiced, keeping visitors well-stocked with fresh-pressed juices and smoothies.

Along the waterfront, you’ll find casual neighbourhood bars perfect for patio lounging, such as LOCAL Public Eatery, whose beach-facing deck is one of the most coveted spots in the city come summer. Kits is also an excellent place to sample top-tier cuisine; a few suggestions are AnnaLena, whose Lego art décor makes for an amusing amuse-bouche; East is East, an intimate space whose flavourful offerings are inspired by the silk route; and CACAO, serving exquisite Latin American cuisine.
Shopping + _
Lifestyle shopping is rampant in Kits, and the best place to start is lululemon athletica on West 4th, where you can scoop up coveted yoga and activewear. There are also plenty of outdoor apparel companies, vintage shops, beauty and skincare stores, and holistic spas to keep you and your wallet occupied for hours. Kits is a great neighbourhood to shop for locally made goodies and gifts to bring home to friends and family.
Things to See and Do + _
Vanier Park is home to some of Vancouver’s most family-friendly attractions, including the Museum of Vancouver; H.R. MacMillan Space Centre and its observatory, the latter of which is open to stargazers every Saturday night by donation; and the Vancouver Maritime Museum. In the summer, the area comes alive with theatre-goers attending the annual Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival, whose shows are staged at sunset against a dramatic waterfront backdrop.
