#3 of 16 in Neighborhoods in Vancouver
Explore the hip and happening national historic site of Gastown. Spend the day strolling the beautiful streets and perusing contemporary fashion boutiques and art galleries, including one specializing in native arts. When the sun sets, enjoy a night out at the area's various well-regarded restaurants and bars. Be sure to checkout the steam-powered clock, which releases bursts of steam through a vent on the sidewalk. Plan my day in Vancouver using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.
