Every time I visit Vancouver I am so excited to walk and window shop downtown. High end shops and a variety of ethnic food restaurant choices await you. The historic buildings add more character, and for me an extra plus to the Vancouver experience.

You can find virtually every type of store downtown. It is also very clean, with the exception of a few areas.

Starting from the Waterfront station, it is worth to go to the Canada Place, Convention Centre, then go to the Art Gallery, Public Library, toss a Robson St, and Granville St, ending at Stadium and Science World (we visit all these places in 6h). Except the Science World, everything else you can visit and photograph for free.

Down town Vancouver is great. Lots of shops but I will warn you that there are lots of homeless people and it can be a bit disturbing especially for children.

We enjoyed are trip to Vancouver & Whistler in December. Although it rained everyday, we enjoyed exploring the various attractions and neighborhoods. I would love to visit again during Summer/Spring.

The city with the mountains in the background is just beautiful. For a large city it is very clean, busy but not too noisy. Some of our highlights were Granville Island, Robson Street and Gastown. The food in the city is second to none! The only negative I would say is China Town dirty with an abundance of bums oh... More

Downtown Vancouver is a nice place to visit, but I find compared to Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and Victoria, Vancouver is very busy and seems a bit run down. We have been here a few times and feel the same every time. Now if you are basing downtown on the waterfront or the mountain views, then of course it is amazing!... More

Staying in Robson Street

Neighborhood Profile
Robson Street
Robson Street is a shopper's paradise. Whether a window shopper or a serious trendsetter, a fashionista or a dabbler, the crowd of independent boutiques, quirky one-off shops, and well-known luxury brands on Robson Street have something to cater for every itch in your wallet. As a result, it draws a diverse crowd, and the people-watching along this famous walking thoroughfare is a primary attraction. In between the clothing shops both high-street and budget-friendly are a number of cafes to lay down your load, as well as numerous specialty stores ranging in their wares from music, to art, to city souvenirs. Known as "Vancouver's Runway," if a new trend is on the rise, you'd spot it here first.
