What's Nearby?

Historic Gastown

As the birthplace of Vancouver, Gastown was initially a settlement that sprung up around a tavern founded in 1867 by sailor and gold prospector John "Gassy Jack" Deighton. This historic district's cobblestone streets are lined with Victorian buildings that today house everything from souvenir shops and First Nations galleries to stylish clothing boutiques. With informational plaques placed strategically along the street to tell the history behind various buildings and landmarks, Gastown is an excellent area for a walking tour.




Pacific Centre

At the edge of fashion in the heart of downtown, Pacific Centre is Vancouver’s premier shopping destination featuring:  Holt Renfrew, Harry Rosen, MaxMara, Hugo Boss, Hollister, Sephora, Apple, Coach, Browns Shoes, Atmosphere/Sport Chek, the Four Seasons Hotel and so much more. Located on the corner of Georgia and Howe, adjacent to Robson Street and the Vancouver Art Gallery.









Granville Street

Located in the heart of Vancouver, Granville Street is where you'll find Vancouver's main downtown entertainment district. Countless restaurants, bars and nightclubs make this a popular late-night hangout, particularly on the weekends. The Pacific Centre shopping mall provides unique stores for those in search of the latest fashions, while the area between Robson and Drake streets offers a diverse collection of boutique shops where you can find the latest footwear, club gear, music or comic books.




Robson Street

If you want a day chock-full of shopping, strolling, dining and people watching, head to Robson Street. It's a sure bet for shoppers of all kinds with everything from big-name stores to funky independent boutiques. The main action is concentrated in the blocks from Burrard Street to Jervis Street, where stores line every inch of space along the sidewalk. And with no short supply of coffee shops, ethnic restaurants, sports bars and grills, fine dining and other eateries, you're never far from a great place to stop and refuel.



Granville Island

In the early 1900s, Granville Island was home to factories, plants and sawmills. At one time, its official name was actually Industrial Island. Things are a little different today, Granville Island is both a locals’ favorite and a huge draw for visitors. It is centered around the Granville Island Public Market, a bevy of merchants selling seafood, fresh produce, cheese and breads. The island’s offerings are much more diverse than just one of North America’s best markets, with theatre, culture, restaurants and unique attractions drawing millions of people each year.
