Most of North Vancouver’s tourist attractions are just a twenty minute drive from Davie Village.  There are 3 routes to the North Shore.  The Lions Gate Bridge is named after the twin mountain peaks clearly visible from the bridge when heading towards the North Shore.  The Lions Gate Bridge was built in 1937 at a cost of just under $6 million dollars by the Guinness family and links the North Shore to Vancouver at the world famous Stanley Park.

There are two other routes to North Vancouver.  The Iron Worker’s Memorial Bridge named in honor of 19 workers who were killed in a tragic accident when the bridge collapsed during construction on June 17, 1958 plunging 79 workers 30 meters (100 feet) to the water below.  The third route to North Vancouver is by passenger ferry boats we call Sea Buses.  The boats run frequently and the Vancouver terminal is just steps from Gastown and walking distance to Davie Village.  The Sea Bus arrives at Lonsdale Quay (see our link below) and is a major hub for our public transit.  You will find a public bus to your North Vancouver tourist destinations located at the North Vancouver Sea Bus terminal.  And remember your Sea Bus ticket can be used on the public transit bus to your final destination!

The North Shore has lots to offer.  Hike though old-growth rainforest in the many parks or view these magnificent trees from the Capilano Suspension Bridge & Cliff Walk, ski on one of the three local mountains, Grouse Mountain, Cypress Mountain (West Vancouver) or Mount Seymour.  After a morning of sightseeing or skiing spend a leisurely afternoon dining on alder-grilled salmon and microbrewery beer followed by coffee on the waterfront of North Vancouver at Lonsdale Quay Market.
