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.

    We walked along Robson Street to get a feel for the city. I would say this is upscale shopping for most people. Didn't really find anything to buy, but we did stop for lunch.  more »

    Robson offers lots of shops which you can find in other towns all over the world. But if you do not mind that, than there are lots of shops and possibilities of buying goods.  more »
