Rent a kayak and take a nice swim, just be careful, there is a lot of big boats making some waves. You can take other direction and swim to open water as well.

Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities we have ever visited. It is filled with great restaurants, hotel, condos, museums, and places to visit. This is just one of them! The area is a very large park with a million views to enjoy--as well...More

I can see False Creek from the condo and when I do my occasional walks around the area (Science Centre, Olympic Village, etc). I have done early morning and sunset where the view of the sun is extraordinary!

This old waterway has stood the test of time from when old fishing boats and freighters came on it to pleasure boats of modern times. The water is clean and clear, no pollution. I saw 2 seals in the water.

Spectacular view of the English bay of the snowy mountains and the historic Burrard bridge can be seen from the Granville bridge at 28 meters high, walk it will not regret, be warned that the winds are strong but the view is lovely.

It's lovely to walk along here - there is always something to see on the water and the pathway is nicely maintained.

A great way to spend a sunny or even a rainy day is to walk around the False Creek area of Vancouver. It is a beautiful setting and will allow you to relax a bit from the hectic city life.

Only had a short ride from David Lam to Granville Island, return, but definitely worth the ferry ride on False Creek. Especially on a good weather!

False Creek is very peaceful, there's a lot of dog walkers/cyclists/skateboards around, but its a really cool spot to take in the fresh air and read a book next to the sea.

They are on the same spot. In the false creek you can take the little boat ferry transfer.

Skytrain - YVR to Inn at False Creek??? (2 Replies)
HI. We are a family of 5 ('kids' - 18, 16 and 11) arriving from England. We are staying at the Inn at False Creek. Is it worth taking the skytrain or is it too far to walk from the Granville Rd station? Or is there any other public transport available - or shall we get a taxi? Thanks.

Hi 3466traveller ~ Take a taxi. By the time you fool around with the surcharges from YVR on the Canada Line and then walk the ~700 meters from Yaletown-Roundhouse station, you'll be paying about the same. On Canada Line, it will cost you 4 x $8.75 and 1 x $7.50 to leave the airport on Canada Line on a weekday; 4 x $7.50 and 1 x $6.75 on a weekend. It will cost you about $35 and 35 minutes door to door in a taxi. You'll need a taxi minivan though with 5 people and luggage and that...More

Me and my wife will be coming a long way from Austria to Vancouver in the end of march, and now I have a few questions which I couldn't solve by my own research so far - maybe a true Vancouverite may help me...? 1.) We will be staying at the Best Western Uptown Hotel and now I am wondering whether to go by taxi or by skytrain? How much would a taxi cost me approximately? As of the skytrain option, I am a bit confused with the pricing. I read on this forum that I can avoid the YVR AddFare...More

Taxi from the airport will be $30-33. Public Transit to that hotel requires a combination of Canada Line and bus. You are two zones before 18:30 and one zone after 18:30 and on weekends to move from Richmond to Vancouver. If you buy a book of faresavers at an airport newstand you can avoid the $5 ex airport charge. Your faresaver gets you onto the bus with the same ticket. You're likely better to simply take a taxi. Boathouse on English Bay is a very good choice. QE Park and Burnaby Mountain...More

Faresaver or day passes? (7 Replies)
We will arrive in Vancouver on Saturday afternoon and will be leaving on Tuesday morning for Victoria. I'm trying to figure out if we will use all of the Faresaver tickets in that amount of time, or if it will be more economical to buy day passes for the two full days we are in town. We will arrive by train and plan to take a cab from the station to our hotel. We will be visiting Stanley Park, Chinatown, Gastown, Yaletown, etc. We plan to use the False Creek ferries to get to Granville Island...More

Hi MrTed ~ All the attractions you describe are within Translink's one zone fare structure. You just have to pay the GI Ferry separately. One transit ticket is good for 90 minutes before needing to use a new one. Each faresaver ticket gives you a break on the $2.75 single fare. A day pass will be $9.75. Gastown, Chinatown and Yaletown are neighbours and can be walked between. Granville Island to Maritime Museum is walkable. In fact trying to take a bus would not work. However the GI...More
