Can't really say too much about this place, it's residential, established, few shops, malls, restaurants etc, doesn't hold the panache that the old musical about the pseudo Shakespearean family feud tuned gang warfare tale has. No Jets or Sharks, I wouldn't even call it a...More

Vancouver's West Side is guilty of so much hubris but it still has some charm and a great deal of life for the bargain hunters among its residents. Therefore, surprises for the visitor. Quite lovely even on a rainy day.

West Point Grey
West Point Grey is one of the city’s oldest
neighbourhoods, especially known for its easygoing and
admired beachfronts. Locals crowd the Spanish Banks
and Jericho Beach, especially in the summer, where a
sprawling view of the English Bay awaits. The central
village is an oasis of sovereign shops, many of them
in local operation for years. The neighbourhood has a
more personal feeling to it, and can be a wonderful
