Vancouver has the nicest downtown. A walk down Robson Street or any street has lots of restaurants and shops. The waterfront and coal harbour area is stunning. Stanley park, English bay are all walking distance from Downtown

Always love the hustle and bustle of this downtown. So much to see and do. Walk Robson and Grandville to shop. Make sure to check out the museum. Great places to eat and drink.

Vancouver Harbour offers a beautiful mix of walk-able paths / bike path / parks and of course an extensive marina. Flowers were in full bloom in early May
