Kits: A Great Community to Live and Play
Bordered to the North by the stunning Kitsilano Beach, Kitsilano is one of the most desirable areas to live in Vancouver. The area runs South to 16th Avenue and spans an area East-West from Burrard Street to Alma Street. Walking distance to the downtown core, delightful Granville Island, a variety of parks and beaches, and so much more, Kitsilano is an ideal location for those striving to achieve that delicate balance between work and play. If you are looking for that laid back Westcoast attitude that Vancouver is famous for, you will find it in Kitsilano!
Why People Love Kitsilano
Kitsilano is a haven for great shopping, wonderful restaurants and fantastic people watching. West 4th Avenue is the highlight of the Kits shopping and dining experience, especially the area stretching from Burrard Street to Balsam Street. Here you will find high end Yoga wear stores (Kits was the birthplace of Lululemon after all) mixed in with consignment stores galore. Dog bakeries, baby shops and organic food stores line the streets, as do coffee shops, pubs and fine cuisine. It is an eclectic mix of upscale urban and retro chic.
West Broadway is also a draw in Kitsilano. West of Balsam, West Broadway extends for blocks with shops, restaurants of all kinds, grocery stores, coffee shops, parks and more. East of Vine, West Broadway has bigger stores, restaurants and a large number of businesses and offices. This is one of the major commercial arteries in the city.
