North Shore Like a Local


With gorgeous natural sights, a vibrant cultural scene, and world-class restaurants, Vancouver’s North Shore is a destination for travelers worldwide. When visitors arrive, they’re greeted with a warm community that rests on the water’s edge and at the foot of mountains. We take pride in hosting guests from across the globe and hope to keep the North Shore shining as brightly as possible for generations to come.


In order to help preserve the beauty of our home and ensure that we can continue welcoming new visitors, we put together an easy-to-follow guide to help promote responsible and sustainable tourism: North Shore Like a Local

To North Shore Like a Local means treating each stop in your journey like you’re part of the North Shore community—because when you visit, you are! Our warm brand of hospitality means we welcome you to make yourself at home with our natural attractions, businesses, and culture. It’s a standing invitation we hope you’ll consider when deciding to visit! And with that open invite, when you explore Vancouver’s North Shore, we hope you’ll treat it the same way you would a second home.

Once you take in the view from the top of Grouse Mountain or walk among the Kia’palano story poles at Capilano Suspension Bridge, you may catch yourself thinking, I could live here! It’s that sentiment that makes us so passionate about preserving the North Shore— we’re lucky enough to live here already, and we want to make sure we can share our home with generations to come.
