New Westminster is an attractive city soloing down to the lovely Fraser River waterfront and boasting great SkyTrain links to downtown Vancouver. New West is justly proud of its historic and vibrant downtown district, dating to the 1800s, which remains one of the city's main shopping districts. as well as downtown and the Quay district, there are many other neighbourhoods ranging from the affordable to the desirable. also in the mix here is Queensborough, which is over the bridge on the eastern tip of Lulu Island. Its Port Royal community offers a great array of new home options with much development going on, selling at far cheaper prices than you'll see in downtown Vancouver.
