We love to visit Vancouver from time to time, we don't live far away but we love to experience the city and stay for a weekend get-away! We always seems to find new places to experience and of course could make each stay longer. This time we tried the Metropolitan Hotel, great service, friendly people and enjoyed the excellent cuisine... More

Downtown is one of the best area in Vancouver where you can find everything. Name it you have it…. Right from snowcapped mountain view, to sunny beaches, parks and aquariums, indoor and outdoor sporting opportunities, stadiums, science centre, official buildings, hotels and night life, fine dining….shopping malls and outlets. There is no chance that one can get bored here. It... More

There is so much to do that you can spend a week and still not do all, starting with the obvious: Day-1 Stanley Park, forget the car and walk or stroll through it staying on the waters edge, about 6k. Evening visit Yale Town have dinner at one of the hundreds of trendy restaurants Day-2 Start in Gas Town see... More

This is a beautiful city with its mountains and waterfront. It has lovely attractions and one can take tours around the city. There is a vast array of different types of restaurants and eating establishments. Entertainment galore! It's a fun city!

I live here. The downtown area is not so big that you can't see all of it. East to West or North to South should only take about 1/2 hour of straight walking, but of course you will have stops along the way! The beaches are lovely, Locarno, Jericho, Spanish Banks. When the sun comes out the locals are out,... More

Sadly downtown Vancouver has very little culture or history and little to no architectural views. There are too many starbucks everywhere sometimes kitty corner to eachother??? The stores are just regular trendy stores like a giant shopping mall. Restaurants for the majority are over rated and over hyped but lack quality, I guess hype keeps business going. Sadly Vancouver seems... More

I moved here to Vancouver in 1986 from England. No other city in the world is as clean and green and has the Pacific Ocean lapping against it's shores offering surrounding mountains views and legendary Stanley Park to experience. Downtown Vancouver is a safe city. Surrounded on three side by water you will find a wonderful climate that rarely freezes... More

Vancouver is a beautiful coastal city with mountains as the back drop and the sea at the doorstep. Downtown Vancouver is a very walkable city with a diversity of areas to see. The West End adjacent Stanley Park has many cafés and small shops to browse. Robs on Street has several blocks of high end fashion stores and coffee shops.... More
