Port Moody is a wonderful waterside community at the top of the Burrard Inlet, set between the water and the forest with the mountains as it‘s backdrop.
Of course, water activities are most popular - kayaking, paddle-boarding, etc. as well as hiking, biking, etc (there are many trails in and around Port Moody). There are several golf courses nearby, including the fabulous Westwood Plateau.
For the winter months Vancouver’s north shore mountains - Cypress, Grouse and Seymour - offer daytime and night skiing, boarding, sliding, etc.
The Museum provides a fascinating glimpse into Port Moody’s rich history, and as you’d expect from the ’City of the Arts’, there are many boutique stores to be explored.
The food and drink choices are too many to mention, but Brewery Row near Rocky Point Park is a must-do, as is the popular Rocky Point ice cream parlour!
