From Spanish Banks to Kits Beach, the west side is also known for it's lengthy stretch of waterfront (over 50 kilometers) which is especially popular in the summer time. Kerrisdale in the south brings a certain flavour, and West 4th is one of the most popular areas in the city for shopping. City Hall stands tall in the west side at Cambie and Broadway, and Granville Street is known worldwide as the entrance to the city. The west side is home to the rich and famous, but it’s also a great place to buy a starter property.
