Lovingly called “Kits” by locals, Kitsilano made a name for itself in the 1960s as the counterculture hotspot in Vancouver. True to its roots, Kitsilano continues to imbue its laid-back vibe throughout the community. Enjoy the beachy vibes, where there’s no shortage of great food and outdoor fun. Eat at some of the city’s best known restaurants, take a stroll to the beach, or do some shopping in the trendy West 4th Street Shopping District. In the summertime, catch live music at the Kitsilano Showboat venue right on the beach. Breathe in the ocean air and that unmistakable west coast feeling living in Kits.
