Used twice during our visit - an ideal way to get from A to B relatively cheaply. A no. of different routes across False Creek so you should be able to find one that suits.

When you go to Granville Island, take a walk to the end which has a beautiful pier. You can see all the little tugboats and there are rentals if you are interested. The skyline of False Creek is always gorgeous...........

I like this area because it is close to the water and you can see a lot of fun things happening there. It is always busy. I do like to ride my bike there because it gives me a bit of freedom far away from the parking hustle and its headache.

This is clearly a fairly newly regenerated area. It has lovely walks and plenty of seats and has a nice open safe feel to it. The expo centre is also part of it.

We had a great walk all along the Creek, its a big creek, and we went for a ferry ride, and then had a great dinner at one of the restaurants along the walkway. Its a long walk so take your time and you can walk from one end all the way to the market.

False Creek is nestled between downtown Vancouver (to the North) and Fairview Slopes (to the South). It can be approached from almost every angle and by every time of transportation: walking, biking, water taxi, car, skytrain and bus, but the most common starting points are from Granville Island (the south-west side of FC), ScienceWorld (south-east side of FC).

Hands down the best place to go for a stroll in the city. Start on Granville Island and walk all the way back to Science World, it'll be worth it.

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
