The City of Vancouver is separated into a number of districts. Most of the attractions associated with Vancouver are in these districts.  These don't correspond to the legal divisions of the city, but instead are a convenient way of sub-dividing Vancouver for travelers.

  • Kitsilano - the "young urban professional" neighbourhood (the area outlined on the map also includes the Point Grey neighborhood).
  • Vancouver South - a mostly residential area, that includes the Kerrisdale, Dunbar, Oakridge and Marpole neighbourhoods.
  • East Van - a working class area; Commercial Drive is the bohemian part of town, Main Street is an up and coming artsy part of the city.

Areas of Greater Vancouver include:

  • North Shore - the area north of the Burrard Inlet, including District of West Vancouver, City of North Vancouver and District of North Vancouver.
  • Burnaby - separate municipality with a number of parks, including three of the larger GVRD Parks (Central, Burnaby Lake, and Deer Lake). Also contains Metrotown, the largest shopping mall in British Columbia.
  • New Westminster - a separate municipality (previously the province's capital). Has a park, shopping mall (Royal City Mall) and a number of Victorian-style houses in the older parts of town.
  • Coquitlam - an emergent suburb Northeast of Burnaby, becoming largely populated by new Vancouverites and mid-class immigrant residents. Naturally set with local trails, parks, hills, Coquitlam is the emerald spot of greater Vancouver.
