Matt ColangeloHey There,

My name is Matt Colangelo, and I am the host of Getogether at Kitsilano.

I can’t wait to show you around and connect you with new people!

So What’s a Getogether Anyway?

A “Getogether” is a social experience that makes it easy to connect with a local host, socialize with new people, and explore a local neighbourhood.

If you are someone that enjoys local neighbourhood vibes and meeting new people, Getogether is perfect for you!

For just $100, you get the opportunity to:

  • Connect with a local Host.
  • Meet and socialize with new people.
  • Enjoy a guided walk across a local neighbourhood.
  • Discover the secret spots that only locals know about.
  • Get VIP seating at a one-of-kind restaurant.
  • Enjoy a drink & tasty appetizers on the house.

The duration of each Getogether is 90 minutes, and starts off by meeting your local host at a recognizable neighbourhood landmark. Your host will get you and the other guests socially acquainted through friendly introductions, and then take everyone for a special walk across the neighbourhood.

Your local host will conclude your Getogether at special restaurant unique to the neighbourhood, where a round of complimentary drinks and appetizers will be served. While your host will eventually depart, you and the other guests will be encouraged to continue the conversation and good times over additional food and drinks at your discretion.

Great tour around English Bay Loved the tour through West downtown. Matthew is very social, quite knowledgeable and has interesting stories to share about some of the buildings and local places you will encounter. I can only recommend this to anyone, especially if you want to get to know other people that visit vancouver.
The setting sun from the craft beer bar that we stayed at was pretty awesome as well!

Great Time on this Experience Travelling alone to Vancouver, this was a great way to pass a couple of hours, and explore a neighborhood I may have missed with a local resident. Matt was a great host and showed us some spots as we enjoyed a leisurely stroll through the English Bay neighborhood. There was a nice vibe among the group and it was fun to socialize with some other travelers and enjoy a drink together. Would love to see this type of thing in other cities too!

Great experience! My experience with Getogether at English Bay was amazing! Matt showed me parts of English Bay I never would've found on my own. We met at my favourite bakery in Vancouver and went for a nice walk through the neighborhood. I learned about the history of Sylvia Hotel and the Boston Ivy that runs up the building. Our walk led us along the seawall where we enjoyed awesome ocean views and a nice conversation. We ended our walk at the Craft pub and enjoyed some food and drinks. I would recommend booking if you enjoy local neighborhood vibes and meeting new people.

Absolutely 10/5! Amazing experience I had an amazing experience with Matt. He showed me a side of the city I’ve not seen before. Even as a local, I experienced Vancouver in a new way.
Can’t wait to book again!!

Amazing experience! Glad I booked this for my families. Vancouver is such a beautiful city and worth the exploring, especially with people like Matt, who knows the city well and good at telling the stories. Will definitely book another one again when my other relatives visit next year.

Fantastic! In a city where meeting new people is notoriously difficult, Getogether is a breath of fresh air. Matt the guide was great at organically progressing the group toward each stop as well as breaking the ice with one another, which allowed for a chill and fun experience that gave me a greater appreciation for this beautiful part of the city- as well as more people to enjoy it with.

Refreshing It was a refreshing experience to be exploring English Bay. I just moved to Vancouver, and this was an excellent way to learn English Bay's exciting stories and histories. I learnt not only about the area, but I got to meet new people and get to know their stories. Also, having a local who knows the best spots for taking pictures and food is fantastic. I would want to do this again!

Getogether Experience This experience definitely blew my expectations. My first time in Vancouver visiting from Toronto and Matt was an amazing local guide taking us to Morton Space Park and a glimpse of the Vancouver Seawall. Looking forward to booking again the next time I come and visiting new places!

Getogether at Kitsilano

Spend the Day at Kits Beach

Kits beach is probably the most popular and busiest beach in Vancouver. Located in the centre of the Kits neighbourhood, it’s the perfect place for a sun bath in a summer afternoon. If you prefer to stay active, you can paddle board, kayak, pass around a frisbee, play beach volleyball, or hit up the public tennis and basketball courts! It’s also a phenomenal place for people watching. It’s also a perfect picnic spot. You can chill and unwind with a book and some nearby takeout. Don’t forget to take a dip in The Pacific!

Swerve the waves at Kitsilano Pool

Right beside Kits beach is the Kits pool – the only salt-water pool. It is a popular place for some of Vancouver’s top triathletes to train for upcoming races. The enclosed Kitsilano Pool is a good alternative to ocean swimming. Don’t let the word ‘pool’ fool you – the water here is almost as salty as that in the Pacific – but much warmer. Views from the open-air pool on English Bay, Stanley Park, and the North Shore Mountains are just as lovely as from the ocean.

Shop at West 4th

West 4th is a popular shopping destination that stretches over eight blocks, delighting shoppers seeking activewear, unique boutique stores, home decor, coffee shops, and a list of fine-dining restaurants. It’s an always bustling area that’s perfect for people watching.

Shop Local Farmers Markets

Every Sunday from May to the end of October, the Kitsilano Vancouver Market takes over the Kits Community Centre with fresh, local organic produce, baked goods, meat, seafood, cheese, and arts and crafts as well as live music entertainment.

Bard on the Beach

Don’t miss out on the renowned Shakespeare festival that takes place outdoors in Kitsilano Beach every summer from early June until late September! Managed by artistic director Christopher Gaze, Bard on the Beach is the largest Shakespeare festival in Canada and incorporates performances as well as creative and cultural workshops.

Bike the Neighbourhood

Biking is a great and inexpensive way to get around the Kitsilano neighbourhood! Kitsilano extends from the Burrard Bridge west through Point Grey over to Alma Street near Jericho Beach. There are a few cycling routes, including Seaside Greenway which begins at the Vancouver Convention Centre and follows the shoreline. This path ends at Kits Beach past Vanier Park. However, you can continue your ride from Jericho Beach along to Pacific Spirit Regional Park where you can enjoy a picnic or wander through 875 acres of lush greenery along the way. This park is dog-friendly, so feel free to bring along your furry friend for the ride! Lastly, you can find bike lanes going down and along West 4th, and on York Street.

Visit the Museum of Vancouver and H.R. MacMillan Space Centre

Gain a deeper understanding of the city at the Museum of Vancouver —  Canada’s largest civic museum, and astronomy at H.R. MacMillan Space Centre, both in the same building located at Vanier Park! Exhibitions are always different and engaging. Gaze at the stars at the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre while discovering the universe with a hands-on approach. Today the space Centre features an exhibit gallery and a demonstration theatre which hosts various public lectures and events.

Learn Maritime History at Vancouver Maritime Museum

The Vancouver Maritime Museum is Vancouver’s top attraction for learning about boats and maritime history, as well as that of the Pacific Northwest and Arctic. Open to all-ages and with a mix of fixed and changing exhibits, it is the perfect place for a nice stop on your way to the beach! Exhibits are informative and interesting for you to explore the entire museum in just a few short hours.

Chill out at Vanier Park

Sitting at the edge of English Bay, Vanier Park boasts wonderful views of downtown Vancouver and Stanley Park. Tranquil ponds, winding trails, open fields, and a wide pathway complement the outstanding waterfront experience. You can find a launching ramp for small craft and a nearby public marina.

Get your history on at Hastings Mill Store Museum

The Hastings Mill Store Museum is the oldest building in Vancouver. Withstanding the test of time and the elements, it survived the Great Fire of 1886. Although small, this museum holds a huge amount of great history.

Relax at Margaret Pigott Park

Looking for a quiet place to enjoy a fresh breeze off the ocean? Margaret Pigott Park is the perfect place featuring views of Stanley Park and West Vancouver. In early summer, a mature Catalpa tree makes an even more spectacular view.
