North Vancouver is probably the most commercial of the North Shore communities, and it's where you'll find popular tourist destinations, including Grouse Mountain and the Capilano Suspension Bridge. It's worth noting that there's another suspension bridge in the area, at lesser-known Lynn Canyon, and that one is free. If you're trying to decide between the two, the Lynn Canyon bridge is shorter (130 feet versus 450 feet at Capilano), and it's not quite as high over the canyon. Lynn Canyon is a little harder to get to than Capilano, especially if you don't have a car. The Capilano bridge is a high-profile tourist attraction whereas Lynn Canyon is a public park with the bridge and hiking trails.
