Favorite thing we did here was take a walking tour (free) by The Tour Guys - took their Gastown Tour. It started downtown & walked to Gastown (about 2 hours) full of fun & fascinating information about history, politics, architecture. It was wonderful. Leisurly pace with several opportunities to sit a bit as the guide spoke. Loved it!

I was a bit disappointed with the lack of attractions downtown. This looks like a nice city to live but not that interesting to visit. We had just come from Seattle which has an abundance of good attractions so maybe we were a bit spoiled. We enjoyed the Vancouver area but really didn't need to spend time downtown.

We like to walk at Coal Harbor. Look at the new Convention Centre. Eat at different restaurants or hotel.
Convenient also for taking the Canada Line (Waterfront terminal) which takes you to different places, including the airport.

I visited Gas Town and was thrilled that it has the same charm that it had 20 years ago when I was last there. The Old Spaghetti Factory sends out its inviting and tempting aromas, the Steam Clock still chirps and the OK Boot Corral is still there! The planting s on the side of the buildings and the containers are beautiful. It has managed to keep its charm. Where Robson Street has lost most of its boutique stores and replaced them with big name brand stuff, Gas Town still has its quirky little shops.

Downtown Vancouver is an interesting place, but I wouldn't consider it a destination. We went through coming and going on a bus trip of the Canadian Rockies. What is around Vancouver, is really more interesting than what is in Vancouver.
