The ocean and mountain backdrop doesn't get any better. Easy access to most attractions and most venues can be walked to. You can take the Skytrain from the airport all the way downtown to the waterfront. Gastown and the famous steam clock are 5 minutes walk.

Just approaching the airport proofs why this is one of the most beautiful cities on earth. Downtown is well connected via the Skytrain with YVR. Do not miss the Pacific Center - great shopping - and Gastown (same reason). If you are interested in North-West Coast native art, Gastown has a lot of shops and galleries, but if you do... More

I really enjoyed seeing downtown vancouver. Full of trendy and luxury shops. Lots of great restaurants and cafes. Robson street for shopping is good and there are high end stores and unique shops. I hear there is a good view of the mountains, but didn't get to see them due to the clouds (again)...maybe next time...

We loved everything about Vancouver! The food was fabulous and the restaurants are close to wherever you decide to stay. There are so many things to do! If you enjoy chocolate visit Koko Monk, wonderful organic chocolate with so many unique favors.

My wife and I chose to base ourselves in Vancouver's Downtown area during our recent visit and were delighted with that choice. Our hotel was on Burrard Street and if you follow it north it takes you all the way to the seafront where you will find Canada Place, GoFly Canada, the floatplane terminal, a marina and lots of restaurants,...

If your coming from out of town try to hit up a festival. Film fest, comedy, folk music; greek or Italian fest, jazz fest, fringe, food truck, or our marathons like the BMO or Scotia. Also walk seawall, goto grouse mountian and ubc for the museum of anthropology. Christmas I nice downtown.
