Great place to be in Vancouver. If you are walking along the seawall there are many options to grab an aqua bus (like a water taxi) to get you to a different spot like Science World or Granville Island market or the Acquarium. So much to see and do.

False Creek is just that, an inlet from the sea around which was once an industrial area cleaned up and converted to the Expo site (year?) and now rehabilitated to high rise residential buildings. A pleasant walk along the promenade takes one past low rise and intimate apartments, parks and yummy yachts alongside marinas. turn back towards the city on... More

From Burrard st. to Quebec st. the loop is 8km. Great for a run, especially early in the morning. On the way you pass by Granville island, telus world of science and edgewater casino. The view is awesome.

Good way to see some of city from a different prospective. Good value for money. Relaxing way to chug up and down the creek hopping on and off at the likes of the science museum, Yaletown and Gandville Island.

What a great way to see a lot and not drag your car along with you! We love the water anyhow, but the sightseeing is terrific, too. Still have many routes we haven't taken...

Well, it is not a real creek, hence false creek. The pace is quite lovely, you take the seabus from one place to another. It connects to graville island or yale town and a few other place. Good place to chill and have coffee.

False creek is really what I consider the perfect mixture of massive city and coastal town. Walk the entire distance from the Maritime Museum (Science Centre/Planetarium) to English Bay. Continue to SeaWall for even better walking.

Nice area when the weather's good - lots of people jog around here, great views of false creek. Can walk all the way around to Granville island/kits to english bay if you've got a couple of hours to kill.

What I like about False Creek, it is a nice area and it is close to Granville Island where you buy nice expensive choices... what I do not like, it needs changes around False Creek area.
