This is serious yacht water. Enormous, classy, sparkling white boats moored outside apartments which just have to have cost the earth. You can bob along in the wonderful little ferries and just gaze. It's fascinating stuff for a landlubber.

Great place for a stroll or jog early morning or evening. Lighted 10k route provides a excellent running route.

False Creek is one of my favorite places to go on my Vancouver visits. I like to walk its seawall --1.5 miles on the north bank and 2.2 miles on the south bank. Sometimes I just amble for awhile on the walkway, with joggers and cyclists, and other times, I walk the whole thing. Colorful maps posted at various points... More

We spent a fantastic afternoon here and rented a boat which we were able to take out along the bay. Between 6 of us it worked out cheaper than going on a boat trip and we had the freedom to explore as we wanted. Really great experience.

We spent 5 hours going up and down False Creek on the Ferry for $15. There are two ferry companies covering this strach of water. They come very frequently and are a most effcient way of getting around. We went to Granville Island (worth a visit on its own), Plaza of Nations, David Lam Park and went for a walk... More

Walking around Vancouver is the best way to see the city, especially if you have great rain gear that keeps you dry. The views at Fisherman’s Wharf in False Creek are outstanding…wild-life, fishing boats, unique art. This is Vancouver at its best!

We had a great Saturday walk along False Creek, enjoying the beautiful city views. Then we hopped on one of the cute little ferries for a pleasant and relaxing ride back. Great way to appreciate this lovely city on the water.

A no cost trip. We walked and sat and walked around the perimeter of False Creek. Took our time and enjoyed the views and parks along the way. Keep an eye out for the Giant Birds in the Park. Man made works of art. The sun was warm and the whole environment user friendly and very enjoyable. Recommended

Thank William A

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
