False Creek is the picturesque bay that separates Vancouver's downtown peninsula from the rest of Vancouver. There is a lovely seawalk that runs along the bay which is popular for walkers, runners, cyclists and inline skaters. We walked the east end of False Creek several...More

Walked the east end of False Creek several times on a recent visit to Vancouver. Took in the Cirque de Soleil, Kurios, Granville Island market, and Craft bar. False Creek has a wonderful walk way all around and provides great access to different neighbourhoods.

Great for shopping, eating, checking out art, the view, the atmosphere...you must go to Granville Island. It's beautiful and surprising, and one of the most creative wonderful experiences of Vancouver.

Went to False Creek recently while in Vancouver for business. Loved the view. This was a great place to go and simply walk around.

No matter where you wander here, there is lots to see and the views are tremendous from many angles. Also plenty of restaurants, bars and shops.

Nice place to spend some time. Relaxing. Not quite as touristy as other areas. One of the places I like most in Vancouver.

Easy walk, short or long, the view is always amazing! Where ever you start your journey, can be a 1 - 7 km walk. Leisurely or quick paced.

One of the most scenery locations in the downtown of Vancouver, beautiful yacht marina, and amazing skyline of Vancouver city with the water reflection. Loved the place and will definitely go back again of I have the chance.

There are beautiful, scenic views all around here. The buildings, bridges, little ferry boats, water birds and lots of people taking advantage of this lovely area. Whether you are passing through to Granville Island (like we were on this trip) or biking or walking on...More

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
