Great for a bike ride

Enjoyed riding our bikes along False Creek. Lots of green space and beautiful views. Take a bike tour if you can -- you'll get more out of it.

Is False Creek actually a place? I went there and walked around the water sport centre and there literally is nothing else there. No starbucks that I could see, not even that dreadful Wayne's Terrible Coffee. Am I missing something? I would avoid this place, it's just a few yuppy apartment blocks overlooking a body of water.

The path itself is so well maintained and landscaped--there's even a waterfowl lake where you can see an entire flock of ducks land at the same time--but also the unbeatable city views and mild weather.

After Stanley Park, this has to be the best walks in Vancouver. A must if you are visiting the city. It can easily take over 3 hours to do a complete tour but you can stop for food and drinks at Granville Island or many other restaurants and eateries along the way.

Love the market particularly the shop selling bread and flowers. Bought a donut and a coffee, sat and watched the ferries went by while taking in the view of Burrard Bridge. Seagulls are a nuisance as they "robbed" my donut. Enjoyed the fella who played music across from the market. Must go on a weekday because it is impossible to... More

I attended a banquet at a sportsplex as part of a conference in Vancouver. The view with lights was incredible!

Name rings very true. This is not a Creek! Great area, Lots of little restaurants, shops and places to explore. Go explore Science World. Fantastic for the kids. Dragon Boat racing can also be viewed as there are local meets in this area.

Best kept secret I almost hate to share as it might become popular...the aqua bus is fun and neat way to see the inner harbour and downtown and quite reasonable for the whole ride.
