Deep Cove is a small community in North Vancouver, giving all of the Stars Hollow vibes but with a seaside twist. Known for its beauty and access to outdoor adventure, the village is also lined with picturesque shops and cafes.

Kayaking is super popular here, since you can rent some and hit the water, taking in the scenic views of the area. There’s a calm ocean enclosed by massive mountains all around, giving you the classic West Coast views.

After some adventure, you can grab some food at one of the restaurants, or go right for dessert at Honeys Donuts.
