Kitsilano is an interesting shopping area and neighbourhood that was a major haven for hippies in the 1960s. Today, retail stores peddling kitchenware, clothing, home furnishing, books, and sporting goods have usurped the former bohemian character. Traces can still be found, however, in some of the eclectic shops and vegetarian restaurants such as Môtiv, Kaya Kaya, Sophie's Cosmic Cafe and the Naam. Some of Vancouver's top restaurants, like Bishop's and Lumiere can be found here also.
You won't read about this area in the tourism guidebooks but it is definately worth a visit. Amazing views and blocks from Kits beach you will find a collection of quirky cool stores, nice patios and generally good people watching. Close to some fabulous homes to the rich and famous you might even spot a star or two!
