If you have been doing any research regarding the best areas to live in Vernon, East Hill has probably come up. Directly east of Downtown Vernon, this neighbourhood offers a variety of different home styles, many parks, and it boarders the BX countryside. A great area of Vernon for families due to the many schools in the area. Having lived in East Hill for the majority of my 26 years in Vernon, I may be biased, but I would say the top 3 reasons to live here are:


1. Parks & Walking trails


East Hill is exactly that. A hill. Which makes it a great area for exercising, walking and enjoying all the neighbourhood has to offer. There are a variety of parks spread throughout the area, but the most popular destination is Black Rock Hill and the surrounding roads, often referred to as Black Rock Run. You get an excellent view from here of the surrounding farms and fields of BX at the base of Silver Star Mountain.


2. Downtown Adjacent


East Hill is an great place to live if you want to be outside of the downtown hub but still enjoy being close. With a variety of different styles of homes, it's a desirable place to buy and rent. Only a short drive from Okanagan College and an only slightly longer commute to UBC Okanagan, East Hill is central to transit routes and can be more accessible than Coldstream.


3. Rich in History & Culture


There are many iconic historical homes in East Hill. Caetani House and Cultural Center is the most well known. However, the Vernon Music School is housed in the 1908 Smith House and many of the rancher style homes were relocated from historical Army Barracks. And you can't miss the beautiful Campbell Home at the top of Suicide Hill.


Regardless of your area of interest, East Hill is a great place to live in order to immerse yourself in the community of Vernon. Accessible, with historical and cultural aspects, it's one of the more desirable places to live in Vernon and a great place to call home!
