Colonized by European, mostly Italian, immigrants in the 1950s and by counter-culture types in the 1960s, this is one of the city's liveliest and most eclectic neighborhoods for a half-day stroll. Eschewing chains, the main drag is studded with quirky stores and coffee shops, each with their own distinctive but welcoming character. A great dining strip, it's also a short hop from the Drive to Vancouver's (and perhaps Canada's) best microbrewery district.
