A lot to see!

Many different restaurants, bars, clubs and shops! I highly recommend visiting Canada Place and taking a walk from there right next to the water :)

Vancouver downtown was a serious disappointment- just skyscrapers with a complete lack of civic feel of civic spaces- just rampant commercialism.

you can go around shopping and dinner and you will find so many choices you will be spoilt for choice unless you know what you want to eat

Beautiful, modern, clean and walking friendly. From the waterfront to the west end, Yaletown and Gastown, you can easily tackle the different neighborhoods easily and on foot (for the ambitious walkers).

What I love about Downtown - being a person who has lived in Vancouver AND come to visit lots... the city is very walkable. just a couple of wks ago I was in town meeting friends from T.O. and a bunch of us walked ALL over, also took the little ferry rides to Granville Island for lunch :) The downtown...

Canada place was interresting to walk till the end of the pier. Gastown athmosphere is unique and it was a nice time spend walking around and stand by the famous clock. But overall, downtown is dirty, full of homeless people and it was pretty scary to walk to BC stadium...

We chose to stay in Vancouver two days after a cruise and found it to be an interesting city. First the fact there is a Starbucks on about every corner stands out in my mind. It is a pretty city but as with all cities they do have the homeless areas to deal with. Many restaurants and large hotels.

A pretty compact city centre which you can easily explore in a couple of hours. A good mix of tourist shops and regular stores. Robson Street is particularly worth a stroll up and down with lots of cafes and restaurants and a fabulous frozen yoghurt shop.

Walk and then walk some more. Vancouver is one of those cities (assuming it is either not raining or if raining you are equipped --this summer it was dry!) where walking in the core is an absolute necessity. Granville, Georgia, Robson and even a stroll along Burrard especially overlooking the harbor, is a delightful way to spend a few hours... More
