How are the Casinos?

Going to Vancouver in mid-oct and staying at the Fairmont. Any casinos nearby and are they worth spending a couple hrs one night after dinner?

1. Re: How are the Casinos?

You posted this in the Victoria forum originally, so I assumed that you were asking about casinos in Victoria (which I know nothing about) but now I see that you're asking about Vancouver.

In downtown Vancouver, there's the Edgewater Casino at the Plaza of Nations. There's also the River Rock Casino, a large casino/resort just south of Vancouver in the city of Richmond (by the airport). If you love casinos, you might enjoy going there, however, if you're looking for an after-dinner activity, it might be a bit too far (30 minute drive).

I'll let other people who have actually been to those comments let you know whether or not they're worth going to. Normally I stroll down to English Bay to watch the sunset, or I'll have dessert or cocktails in Yaletown after dinner... but that's just my own personal preference.
