The Roedde (Heritage) House right downtown in the housing area of Vancouver, depicts the way the wealthier lived in yesteryear. Well preserved and well put together, It worth a short visit when your close to Stanley Park or walking down Robson Strasse.

They have done a wonderful job of restoring the house to its original state. The restored house brings to life the era in which the family lived. The write-ups in each room are well done and they have many, many artifacts. The outside is beautifully...More

I was a volunteer docent at Roedde House for two years, almost every Sunday. After every tour the guests told what an excellent tour I gave. I was treated disrespectfully and harrassed by one of the Board Members. I no longer volunteer at Roedde House....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
