North Vancouver Hot Tub Covers
North Vancouver is a great weekend road trip spot; whether you're hanging out in the city, the district, or both for twice the fun. If you're planning on visiting North Vancouver for the first time, there are a few basic tidbits of information worth passing along. What most people commonly call North Vancouver is made up of two different areas, each with their own council and mayor. The city of North Vancouver is surrounded by the larger District of North Vancouver on three sides, with the fourth side being bordered by the Burrard Inlet. The inlet separates North Vancouver from Vancouver, but it's pretty easy to get from one to the other, as the city of N. Vancouver is largely seen a suburb of Vancouver.
The history of North Vancouver is riddled with debt. The once unified municipalities separated after financial problems in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The Great Depression again rattled the cities' residents, only to be offset by the start of the second world war. Ironically, it was because of N Vancouver's naturally mountainous terrain that the city had such financial problems, but today that same terrain is one of it's most defining features. Whether you're planning to relax in the district area, or go for a drive around the city of North Vancouver, you're bound to see some amazing scenery.
As mentioned earlier, the North Vancouver area is naturally mountainous. Grouse Mountain is one of two great natural landmarks in the area; Mount Seymour is the other. Together, the two mountains are home to a great many different sights and activities. Mountain climbing, hiking, skiing, mountain biking, and nature watching are just some of the countless activities visitors expect to enjoy on the ranges. Mountain biking is what the North Vancouver mountains are most known for however. The Baden-Powell trail, and the “Knee Knacker” are some of the most popular, but there are a wide variety of mountain biking trails for bikers of all shapes and sizes.
After an incredible day outdoors, why not go sightseeing around town to take a breather? The urban areas of North Vancouver are great for shopping for just about anything; from grabbing hiking gear to a hot tub cover for the late night festivities. After you're done checking out what the different plazas have to offer, there's always the Lynn Canyon park or the Capilano River regional Park if you have some extra time to kill.
