Before we went off to explore Yaletown and Davie Village, two of Vancouver’s most popular neighbourhoods, I recorded a ‘What not to miss’ podcast with Amber Sessions from Tourism Vancouver.
It was a really good interview and Amber told me all about the city, covering Stanley Park, Grouse Mountain, Granville Island and also some of Vancouver’s top neighbourhoods. We went to explore two of these neighbourhoods after the interview was finished.
First up was Yaletown. This is a great part of the city, filled with restaurants and a wide variety of high end shops. Most of these are located up on the platform style sidewalks lining the streets. Apparently these look this way because this area is where Vancouver’s trains used to arrive in and depart from.
Davie Village is Vancouver’s gay village and it’s a really cool area. All along Davie Street you’ll find a great selection of funky cafés, bookstores, alternative boutiques, pink bus stops like the one pictured here and lots more. There’s also a great variety of bars along Davie and the surrounding streets, and the neighbourhood has a really welcoming atmosphere.
One of the things I’ve really come to love about Vancouver is how it really is a city of neighbourhoods and all these neighbourhoods have their own unique personalities.
Now we’re back in the HI-Vancouver Central getting ready to go out for some dinner and to enjoy Friday night in Vancouver.
