If you are looking for North Vancouver Realtors, here are a few things to know about the area. The City of North Vancouver is a waterfront municipality on the north shore of Burrard Inlet, directly across from Vancouver, British Columbia. It is the smallest of the three North Shore municipalities and the most urbanized. Although it has significant industry of its own, including shipping, chemical production, and film production, the city is usually considered a suburb of Vancouver.
The city is served by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, British Columbia Ambulance Service, and the North Vancouver City Fire Department.
You have fantastic views of Stanley Park, the north shore bridges, and the lights of Downtown Vancouver at night are spectacular. You are minutes from three ski hills in the winter and to the ocean for boating and sailing in the summer. Everything you need on the north shore from parks and the world-famous Capilano Suspension bridge and Treetop adventure walk. Grouse Mountain, only 15 minutes from Downtown Vancouver has trails for the avid hiker since it was first climbed in 1894. In 1949, the world’s first double chairlift was built for snow skiing.
