Let’s be honest. Living in a vibrate, cool, and full of history neighbourhood in Vancouver, BC is essential for the youth community.

Did you know that Commercial Drive is considered as Vancouver’s Little Italy? Well, I don’t know if you but having a Pizzeria near my house wouldn’t be bad at all!

Declared as Vancouver’s best neighbourhood by National Geographic, Commercial Drive is surrounded by cool graffitis, interesting spots like Cafe Deux Soleil and veggie-friendly restaurants.

Not only is the place for great Italian food. This neighbourhood is also home to Mexican, Cuban, Japanese and Caribbean restaurants.

Where to stay?
