Description

There's no better way to explore one of the world's most livable cities than on foot. Walking Vancouver shows you Vancouver, British Columbia as you've never seen it before, whether you're a die-hard local or a first-time visitor. Site of the 2010 Winter Olympics, the city is already renown for its diverse neighborhoods, easily accessible sites, and "clean and green" image. With this book you'll explore neighborhoods such as Chinatown, Kitsilano, and the West End, accompanied by the amusing and savvy descriptions from the author, a Vancouver insider. The 36 anecdote-packed, easy-to-follow ambles include Stanley Park's hidden sites; University of British Columbia's unexpected attractions; Granville Island's artisan pit stops; and the historic mansions of old-school Shaughnessy Heights. There's a perfect pub crawl in Gastown; lively farther afield strolls in Steveston, New Westminster and the North Shore; and even an eye-opening tour around the Downtown Eastside. You'll uncover the colorful stories behind street names, character buildings, and eye-catching public art. This highly portable guide features detailed maps for each trip, original photos, and parking/transit information for every trip. Route summaries make each walk easy to follow, and a "Points of Interest" section summarizes each walk's highlights.
