Kitsilano, known locally as ‘Kits’ is one of the city’s most popular beach destinations. It was named by National Geographic as one of the top 10 beach cities in the world. As a neighbourhood, it has a more laid back feel. There’s a mix of houses, townhouses and apartments here and is a highly desirable place to live. Located just across the Burrard bridge, Kitsilano is no more than a 5-10 minute drive from downtown Vancouver. It plays host to a range of local events, street parties and arts festivals. A number of local museums can be found here. The views are wonderful and the beach is often bustling with summer activities such as beach volleyball and paddle boarding.
