VANCOUVER WEST END DOWNTOWN
<<< CLICK on pics for MLS listing
West End living is almost the definition of Vancouver lifestyle that is easy to recommend for exploration. Living here is literally like having a hotel concierge at your doorstep – you can have it all. It is a gateway to Stanley Park, English Bay, Davie Street, Robson street, Granville Street, Burrard Street for business or pleasure.
Lifestyle here is vibrant and diverse. Many of the residents live in high-rise apartments/condos and love the communities. Although the shopping, beaches, and Stanley Park are main attractions, the dining and people-watching provide relaxing moments in beautiful settings. Along with high-rise buildings, there are areas of mid-rise, low-rise, and even renovated houses. There is a blended population with younger residents attracted by the downtown lifestyle or proximity to business as well as the older (semi-)retired population drawn by the proximity to walkability, the beach, shopping, dining, and amenities.
For entertainment and activity, the West End is unbeatable. Ask anyone what they MUST SEE and do in vancouver and many of those will be in or around the West End; Stanley Park for nature lovers with the walk around the seawall giving you a splash of the West Coast; English Bay for beach, kayaking, paddle boarding; Seawall route around Stanley Park has access by bike, walk, rollerblade to 2nd beach, Yaletown, or Science World if you have several hours; Robson, Davie Streets have shopping with very different feel. Robson is trendy and more touristy while Davie gives you a taste of local life.
