    After a bike ride we took the AguaBus to the island. We loved the market and all the food choices. We ate lunch and picked up meats and sides for dinner. There are so many shops and restaurants. It is touristy, but when a tourist - be a tourist!

    This is a beautiful museum, laid out very well and easy to explore all it has to offer. We enjoyed learning about the native cultures of BC.

    I’ve wanted to come here for years and finally had the chance. If you aren’t blown away by the energy, creativity and skill I’m not really sure what to say. If you don’t know much about Bill Reid, this is a great place to start. Other artists’ work is featured as well and I appreciated seeing the beadwork pieces, which I’m always in awe of. Take a moment to go through the gift shop, one of the few places I’ve seen outside Haida Gwaii where you can purchase authentic argillite pieces.

    We visited the Art Galley as it was near our hotel. The main exhibition was of works done by Canadian Women artists. We found this very illuminating combined with the information provided on the app. The second floor contained mainly photographic images, while the top floor was given over to Children's work. We found that the shop contained some very good quality products and the bistro provided us with a good lunch with excellent service.

    Rather large mall with lots of options for luxury item shopping, including the largest Nordstroms I have ever seen. The food court was average, reasonable amount of seating space. Payment is required for parking, even with proof of purchase within the CF mall, which I felt was unfair.

    Here it is, August 2021, the first wave of tourists (from America) have jumped the hurdles, done the tests, etc. to gain entry to Canada. We really did not expect as many business entities to have fully recovered as there actually are; this is a (recovery) work in progress.

    From our perspective, the good bones of this center are here: that being the cascading waterfall fountain in the small courtyard (facing Coal Harbor) and the Food Court choices (all hungry for business).

    The shop spaces look to be in the midst of giving things another go (lots of activity setting up new businesses on the ground floor). There's no sugar-coating the effect Covid has had on local economies (world-wide).

    Head down Robson for high-end shopping (Nordstrom's). It won't be found here.

    Recently moved from Gastown, but very accessible by public transit. Lots of beautiful art pieces, and also other Indigenous-made goods such as jewelry and wallets. Relaxing to browse the gallery. Knowledgable and friendly staff. Definitely worth a visit.

    This gallery is just across the street from the steam clock. It’s a touristy area but the standard of the work is very fine. I went in specifically looking for silver jewellery by native artists. The selection was small but beautiful quality. I ended up buying a carved silver bracelet by a Coast Salish artist, which was different from anything else I had seen in Vancouver or in Alaska. I only checked out the prices for jewellery but they were comparable with other shops including the gift shop of the Anchorage Museum. The staff were helpful and not pushy.

    On Skytrain Canada Line, Oakridge 41st Ave. So for tourists who don't drive this is easy access from downtown area.

    Not as big as Metrotown but closer to downtown there's enough shops and eateries in an indoor setting to keep one occupy for at least few hours.

    This is a pretty convenient location for those of us on the east side of the city. Parking is a little tight but okay if you don't mind walking a few blocks. Lots to choose from for fresh local veg and seasonal fruits . Bakery goods and some other things like crafts and prepared food. Had some very yummy Mexican tortillas and sauces from there.

    The gallery moved back to Vancouver Downtown. It has opened a new location at Canada Place, inside the Pan Pacific Hotel, on the reception level This is the same level where the restaurant and lounge are.

    I always enjoy a visit to Spirit Wrestler Gallery when I'm in Vancouver. Everyone here makes me "feel at home" (that's an understatement!) and encourages me to take my time and enjoy the art of the Northwest Coast. Artists both young and chiefly are represented in a relaxed setting that simply can't be beat...in a word, comfortable. Enjoy the friendly company and the art! "Beautiful" says a lot!

    There are a lot of art galleries in Vancouver. There are a lot of GOOD art galleries in Vancouver. But, there are very few like this one, which specializes in local's woodwork, stone sculpture, and other media. The photos help show the quality and selection that is difficult to put into words. Tourists who are interested in local culture should definitely look here; in the western part of Gastown, a short walk from the Cruise Ship Centre.

    This wad a destination gallery for us, in the touristy area of Granville island. The artwork was incredible with a wide range of media and knowledgeable staff. Well worth a visit.
