  • When you visit Vancouver, British Columbia a walk along side of False Creek is a must. No matter the weather (it rains a lot in the winter months) it will still be a refreshing and beautiful walk. Small water taxis make it a lot of fun to travel back and forth between Granville Island and downtown. There are all kinds of shops and touristy things to enjoy.
  • Try to come with a bike if you dicide to visit here, but in general you get nice views and a small lake breeze, really relaxing place
  • Nice spot for outdoor activited. Great scenery and not too crowded.
  • Fun place for kayaking and paddle boarding. Can be pretty busy in July and August.
  • It's simply beautiful
