    Walk along the side on Granville Island or downtown. Its a great walk and the creek is gorgeous with boats, kayakers, and people enjoying the beauty.  more »

    False Creek was right down the street from where we stayed and we visited it often. Full of life! Be sure to stay on the pedestrian trail!  more »
