Introducing Downtown & West End
Radiating from the central intersection of Granville and Georgia Sts, Vancouver's downtown core is easily walkable. Consider starting your exploration on the waterfront at Canada Place and then heading slightly uphill, with the mountain at your back, along Burrard or Granville Sts. You'll pass plenty of stores and cafes before reaching Robson St, the city's main shopping promenade. Wander along here for an hour or so (ducking into shops en route) before arriving at the intersection of Robson and Denman. Explore the West End and its menu of midrange restaurants, side-street wooden heritage homes and the friendly 'gayborhood' vibe. Davie St is the West End's main strip, and both Denman and Davie Sts lead to English Bay Beach, one of Vancouver's most popular summer hangouts. From either end of Denman St, you can stroll into Stanley Park. Hitting the seawall here is the perfect way to commune with nature. Take photos of the totem poles and take in the Vancouver Aquarium, one of the city's best family-friendly attractions.
