Located south-east of downtown Vancouver along Main Street (between E 5th Avenue and King Ed), this hip and happening neighbourhood is home to some of Vancouver’s best independent boutique shopping (local designers, record stores, book shops, vintage clothing), with eccentric cafes, restaurants, and lounges. Very art school chic and great people watching.

Mount Pleasant is a charming place in Vancouver, lived by local people. Aside Broadway avenue, there's a lot of beautiful wooden houses on trees streets. You'll find also the best shops to buy adventure equipments in the city!

Is a gorgeous part of the City to walk around. Grab a local beverage and people watch. Nice local shops and clean and friendly vibe.

South Main
South Main, or SoMa, is a neighbourhood in upswing.
Inhabited by young humanitarian professionals in
converted lofts and studio apartments, what was once
an industrial centre is now a wellspring of vintage
and eco fashion shops, contemporary sawdust-floor
galleries, craft beer joints, and basement acting
studios. All set to an Art Deco background with a
strong blue collar sensibility underpinning each new
