New Westminster is a part of Metro Vancouver, BC and surrounded by other districts like Burnaby, Surrey and Coquitlam. Richmond is also not far away! New West is extremly transit friendly. The skytrain ,busses, car sharing and highway 1, which is nearby makes it a perfect destination for people who commute to work and prefer the flexibility to get to different places in the lower mainland in a shorter amount of time.
Downtown New Westminster reminds me a lot of San Francisco (in a really tiny format). Some streets will test your cardio and that being said, if New Westminster isn't one thing, then it is bycicle friendly! Not for the average cyclist at least.
Watch this short video clip for some visiual impressions of the area!
The Quay by the Fraser River is perfect for a stroll with your partner and/or children as well as going for breakfast and brunch or a beer after work.
