This Vancouver resource is such a valuable asset! We visited with friends, also from Washington state. Toured only, but well worth the time to do so.

This library is amazingly beautiful. Very special architecture sort of like a roman coliseum. You have thousands of books inside of all topics. There are also some coffee shops downstairs.

In the centre of town with a gorgeous garden on the roof. Great place to read and relax. The small cafes in the library give a comfortable resting place and good coffee break

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,
