If you are going to spend any length of time in False Creek, get a day pass for the water taxi to get around. It's well worth it as there is plenty to see and do. Granville Island Market is a must for fresh fruit and vegetables.

I love riding along the seawall. Lots of places to stop along the way and take photos. Great spots for picnics and people watching.

Was here for a while while i waited to on the ferry to Granville island. Simply a beautiful sight, especially when it's sunny. There's nothing much to is, except to simply enjoy the view. Everyone's exercising, walking, cycling and just relaxing. Blissful place.

We walked almost the entire length and had a ball watching everyone else enjoying themselves in what I think is one of Vancouver's signature attractions (especially if you are into architecture as I am). There is a lot of activity on the "creek" as well (it's an inlet) in the late afternoons, with dragon boat teams clearly practicing for competitions.... More

I loved walking through (I did one of the tours through Tour Guys) and it was great to hear about how the area was restored and cleaned up so much so that wildlife actually started coming back to the area on their own. Their architecture and design is just great and I loved the new ideas for environmentally friendly designs... More

This is a great place to go for a walk and see all the new things that have been built and see how others enjoy the scenery as well.

False Creek is where you catch the great little ferry to Granville Island. They run every five minutes and each ferry holds fourteen people. They are efficient, well-maintained, and fun!

Spent the morning walking around False Creek. Not much to do, but great sightseeing and a great way to pass the morning. If you're by the Fishermans Warf at lunch time, stop in at Go Fish-great local seafood!
