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.

I'm not sure what the attraction is. There is a water taxi that you can take to other locations. This is a nice spot to grab a coffee, but I'm not sure what else people do in the area. I must be missing something.

We took a mini tour along the creek from Granville island which was very relaxing and gave great views of the banks. There are paths all around and nice grass areas for picnicking.

We found the restaurants in Vancouver a bit pricey, but the False creek market had great food at a great price! Take the hop- on hop off bus and you get a cool boat ride for free and picked up on the far side of the market.

Go as far or as short as you like...the views are spectacular. Take a Seabus to Yaletown or stop along the way at Granville Island, Science Center, English Bay, Marine Museum, Kits Beach....or hit several patios and watch the people go by.

One of my favourite walks is along the seawall on the South side of False Creek. Usually between Science World and Granville Island. There are lots to look at as well as many places to stop and eat. You won't be disappointed and it's easy to get to from downtown.

This is one of the special areas of our city, reclaimed from industry and repopulated with lovely condos, a myriad of shops and restaurants, as well as a wonderful seawall pathway for strolling, jogging or biking. The scenic views of our city, harbor and downtown are evident all along the shoreline. Parks dot the landscape and you can catch a... More
