Davie Village
Davie Village is the vital LGBTQ heart of Vancouver.
It is the only like area in the world to have a
permanent four-way rainbow crosswalk, to symbolise the
city's solidarity with many of the businesses, ranging
from bars to bookstores, that keep the area vibrant.
By day, it is a people-watching stop, with fantastic
boutique cafes, but at night is when it really shines,
humming with neon lights and nightclub music inside
