This suburb area northwest of downtown is one of the most prosperous communities in Canada. If you're looking for a place to shop, the large Park Royal Centre is the country's first shopping mall. Be sure to take time out to walk through Lighthouse Park. It's in an 80-acre old growth forest, and visitors might get a chance to watch seals lounging on the rocks near Howe Sound. Point Grey, another residential area, boasts stately homes, miles of waterfront and one of Vancouver's oldest parks. The area's beaches stretch from Jericho Beach to Spanish Banks, offering haunts for swimming, sailing and walking. It also has a cluster of antique and collectible shops and is home to the annual Vancouver Folk Festival.
