This is such a nice walk, whether it is raining or not. Really lovely scenery, on a nice day you can watch people rowing. There's also some places to eat and drink if you want to have a break half way through. I never tired of walking around False Creek, and even took my friends when they visited.

I LOVE False Creek! Wonderful scenery day and night! There are restaurants, shops, cafes and lots to see. I love walking my dog there and you can also walk right to Granville Island. I really enjoy it here and always go for my walks there when I can.

It is lovely to walk or ride your bike around the Sea Wall from Kitsilano to English Bay and then on around Stanley Park. There are lots of places to stop for tea or lunch, and great people watching with the architecture and cityscape. If you are less ambitious you can take a ferry across and just see the beginning...

Regardless if you are kayaking/boating/Aquabusing it, or just walking/roller blading/biking around it False Creek offers amazing views, and unique experiences and should be considered a full day trip for your itinerary.

Wonderful place to go for a walk, can stop in for coffee or a bite at the market on Granville Island, or a drink at the Wicklow Pub. Spend some time at the Olympic Village Square - great eats at Terra Breads!

Take a water taxi to tour the False Creek area. Many interesting stops, but you definitely want to get off and spend time at the Granville Island Market and shops. The water taxis run often and its the best way to view all the boats and scenery at False Creek.

So much to see and do around False Creek such as walking the seawall trail, exploring the Granville Market and any of the other establishments on the island, taking a Water Taxi, or just relaxing in one of the many parks on and off the island. A great oasis in the middle of Vancouver.

My family and I went to Granville Island and rode the Aquabus to cross the False Creek for a short 25 minutes, one can see all sizes of yacths, the houses in the water and one of them was featured in the Grand Design tv show, parks, buildings, the mandarin ducks bathing, the seagulls, the crows.
