Vancouver: The Blog


Recently I was talking with a few different people who were looking to get recommendations about Vancouver! Some were going to be visiting Vancouver on vacation and a few were looking for more long term recommendations as they were moving for school!

So here are SOME of my favourite places to eat/drink and some recommendations for things to do in Vancouver!

First: You’ve got to walk along Main Street! Start at 6th Avenue and walk all the way to 30th if you have the energy! Tons of food, coffee and local shops with clothes, bikes, knick knacks and antiques!

Be sure to visit English Bay (duh!) and Stanley Park (seriously).

Visit Vancouver Art Gallery for great art stuff!

Gastown is beautiful so be sure to walk through and shop, eat and caffeinate yourself to the max!

Commercial Drive is tons of fun. Especially on the weekend! Be sure to walk the strip!

We have great indie theatres. Check out 5th Avenue and The Rio!

If you’re there in summer, Vancouverites love watching movies in the dark! So many parks, including Stanley Park, play classics on massive screens! So be sure to keep your ear on the ground for that!

Great venues to check out shows are:

Orpheum Theater
Commodore Ballroom
Vogue Theater
Media Club
Electric Owl

Here are some of my favourite places to eat, drink etc.
