I moved in to the False Creek area last summer. I'm loving the area, just steps from the seawall, very scenic walk/bike ride. There are many cool specialty shops, restaurants, coffee shops and grocery stores. My only complaint is the Drug rehab building they built right next door, there have been several break ins resulting in damages to the building... More

My favourite place for a relaxing stroll in the sun or a walk in the rain. The view is wonderful, from the dragon boat racers practicing to the snow capped mountains behind the city skyline. Take a break and wander the seawall or stroll through Granville Island, or take the kids to Science World and leave them inside while you... More

Lots of people around and the scenery is beautiful. Beautiful and relaxing. Can enjoy an easy walk or run around here. Can get busy in the summer but its worth it.

You can spend hours here just watching people and relax. There are a couple of bars around the area if you prefere to have a drink or two.

Very beautiful in the summer! Always stuff going on in this area, lots of places to eat and things to do. If you have some time rent a bike and travel all around the Seawall to experience the views Vancouver has to offer.

Walked through on the way to Granville island, nice area and very scenic around the docks, there was a food truck there that looked good and had a large crew.

If you're visiting Vancouver, don't miss the False Creek area. In recent decades, there has been so much upgrading of this former industrial site and it's now a top tourist and urban residential area. The water front is beautiful and upscale. You can ride a bike (rentals are nearby), run, or walk all around the harbour. You can watch boats... More

It was cold and breezy as we sat and watched the super-moon rise. The place is well maintained and looks beautiful even in the dark . we get a view of the Vancouver skyline . The aqua-boats were very attractive as they made their way in the silence of the evening... unfortunately I did not visit the place in the... More

False Creek runs from it's narrow entrance on the west side of English Bay, (just under my northern windows) going under the Burrard and Granville bridges right by Granville Island, after which it balloons out into a wide, calm, inner sea surrounded by 3 parks, marinas and low-rise residential areas on its southern shore while Downtown, Yaletown, 2 stadiums and,...

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
