I grew up in Kerrisdale, a neighbourhood in the west side of Vancouver. I now live elsewhere, but especially as the holidays approach, I start to think nostalgically about this area of town.
The heart of the Kerrisdale Village lies along 41st Avenue (Larch Street to Maple Street) and West Boulevard (37th to 47th Avenue), where you’ll find a picturesque selection of boutiques, eateries, and service providers. The area has a certain old world charm to it, making it a perfect escape for exploring the city beyond the downtown core. In December, the area comes alive with decorations and events that celebrate the holiday spirit. Visit with someone special and take in the Christmas cheer, Kerrisdale-style!
