Not a bad street for shopping. Caters from low to high end shops. Just ensure like anything, you do your research and know what things cost and make sure you convert currencies if needed. Things to eat on the street as well. Just like any other Main Street for shopping. Do Hudsons bay as well and have a walk down... More

This is supposed to the shopping area. Apart from the section around Granville St it's all everyday shops and the further you go the cheaper and nastier it gets. Stick to the HudsonBay department store which has all you need. We picked up great bargains on Levi's and Timberland

Not as flashy as Las Vegas Blvd nor Rodeo drive of beverly hills but still plenty of choices for shopping and places to eat. 2-3 hours walking around this area for us.

We really loved walking around Robson street. There are so many shops, restaurants and cafes everywhere. It seems to be a very popular place to stroll along. It's such fun part of the city to hang out and enjoy.

Go-to place to do outdoor shopping if you want to stroll and take your sweet time. There are enough shops and snacks to entertain and feed the shopping soul. I was there for a little spring break, stayed in the West-End for a couple of days, walked, ate and shopped. We are local, but have a property outside the city... More

This is clearly the place for those who want to shop. Every designer clothing store, shoe store, etc is located on this street or right off of it. There are also loads of other shops and restaurants. It's clearly the shopping hotspot of the city. They also take good care of the street itself - they washed the sidewalk every... More
