We lucked upon dragon boat races the day we explored the False Creek area - fun to watch! The ferries are only $5 per person, one way, so made it very affordable to ride a ferry to get to other False Creek areas.

My bike ride around False Creek on a sunny day proved to have a lot of other people doing the same thing. On this Saturday, the bay had a lot of activity, including sailing, canoe races, and just a lot of people capturing some sun. Bike trail is continuous around False creek.

A small creek with a marina and lots of dragon boats racing up and down. Very picturesque! There are some beautiful properties along the banks.

Travel the perimeter on the city side and enjoy changing views, great walking and then stop for an espresso or glass of wine at any of many places and celebrate your day!

We had a mini tour of the creek (actually a river) via Aquabus and it's a great experience. Seeing all those tall and towering Vancouver skyline while on board, as well as those luxury boats docks around the creek. It's a must to do list and drop by!

Lovely to walk along the seawall, and there's lots to see and do. Unfortunately there's a bit of trash and quite a few dirty and aggressive geese. FYI, these geese don't like dogs.

All the shops, and I am NOT a shopper, good variety of retail and Marine related services - nice to walk around the docks and view Boats and People. And of course the views and FOOD offered is super
