The neighbourhood of Commercial
Drive is in the east end of the city, a short ten minutes by
skytrain from downtown Vancouver. It is a glorious sight with all
it's trees, character homes, wonderfully diverse people and the
beautiful Grouse and Cypress mountains in the background.
The Drive's community is
represented by a vast array
of cultural backgrounds. A large number
of Vancouver's Gay & Lesbian community call "The Drive"
their home. We are also known for the many vegetarians,
environmental activists and hemp lovers galore.
coffee bars, fine dining, live music and theatre, art exhibits,
and unique shopping, attract visitors from all over.
