Great North Vancouver Real Estate  Attractions

North Vancouver is the home of one of the city’s most photographed views, of course with the exception of the houses sold and up for sale with Mary-Jo Braid Realtors. The views we are talking about are the North Shore Mountains. North Vancouver offers a wide range of activities and attractions ranging from hiking trails and ski hills to beautiful forested parks and river canyons. Below are some of the attractions you might want to visit while in North Vancouver:

  1. Mountainous & Forest Parks

North Vancouver is surrounded by beautiful forest parks and mountains. These are a great attraction for hikers, snowshoers, mountain bikers and skiers. There are plenty of challenges that can be found in Cypress and Mt. Seymour provincial parks. The shoreline is a great attraction too with its paved seawall as well as the forest trails of Lighthouse Park.

  1. Grouse Mountain

Grouse Mountain is a common tourist attraction as well as a great family outing for the residents of North Vancouver. One can enjoy the hiking to the top and relax on the way down on the scenic gondola ride. During the winter there are many snow activities including skiing and snowshoeing as well as ice-skating.

  1. Capilano Suspension Bridge

This is actually Vancouver’s oldest tourist attraction. It was first built in 1889 and became a tourist attraction in 1893. This is not just any wobbly bridge lying across a river canyon, but it also provides a cliff walk experience and a Treetops adventure through giant cedars.

  1. Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge

This is an alternative to the Capilano Suspension Bridge with many forest trails that fan out from the bridge and an ecology centre. This is ideal for short hikes especially for families.

  1. Capilano Salmon Hatchery

The Capilano Salmon Hatchery offers up a chance for one to enjoy salmon returning to the Capilano River. There are underwater tanks that give one a fish-eye view of the large salmon leaping up the tiered ladders. It is quite a phenomenon.

  1. Maplewood Farm

If you love animals then this is a great place to visit when in North Vancouver. The farm has been host to thousands of people who have found the farm a lot of fun and very educational.

  1. Lonsdale Quay

This is an indoor marketplace that can be found on the north shore of Burrard inlet and is open 7 days a week with a wide variety of vendors and products. You will find a host of bakers, butcheries, florists and gift shops. There are lots of cafes and restaurants as well as a pub and play are for children. It is a nice place to while away a Sunday afternoon.

  1. Raptor Show

During the summer months you can get to enjoy the raptor show that is held at the top of Grouse Mountain, just a small distance from where the two grizzlies of Vancouver are located. This is a demonstration of owls and hawks that provide a demonstration and return back to their handlers.

North Vancouver offers these and a lot more attractions. So, if you are thinking of taking a trip to North Vancouver, why not consider a visit to the different properties up for sale as well.
