One of the fastest growing neighbourhoods in Kamloops is Aberdeen, located south of Highway 1 and west of Highway 5A. It provides easy access to the Coquihalla. It is a popular location for home buyers of all seasons, with a mix of multi-unit condominiums in the lower part of Aberdeen and larger single-family dwellings in the upper areas. Aberdeen is situated on the north side of the mountain, with the southernmost streets having some of the highest elevations in the city. The views from this neighborhood can be astounding although the winters can be slightly longer than neighbourhoods closer to the Thompson River.
While Aberdeen is primarily residential, it is also home to many of the city's hotels, due to its proximity to the two major highways. It is also home to Costco and the Cascades Casino and is one of the only areas to house a mall. Aberdeen Mall includes Lulu Lemon and Sephora as well as Hudson’s Bay and Atmosphere.
