Robson Street, Vancouver

3.7
Get a feel of downtown as you stroll down Robson Street. The former "Robsonstrasse" was named after the premier of British Columbia, John Robson, and was once the center of German culture and cuisine. Today the rustic German shops and restaurants are mostly gone, but the street remains a shopping and fine-dining hub of the city. The busy street will take you from BC Place stadium on the shore of False Creek to Stanley Park through numerous squares, shops, restaurants, and parks.
