Vancouver - Neighborhoods & Green Vancouver (Chapter)
This chapter contains the Neighborhoods and Green Vancouver chapters from Lonely Planet's Vancouver guidebook.
Unlike some cities, there's more than one heart in Vancouver and travelers can have a distinctively different day out depending on where they head. And its dense, majestic forests and verdant, rain-fed plant life make nature an ever-present fact of life here.
- chill out in Stanley Park, a sea, sand and forest spectacular just minutes from downtown
- allow yourself to be lured by the sweet and savoury aromas of Chinatown’s brightly painted, clammy windowed restaurants
- stroll the artisan studios, galleries and public market of Granville Island
- hang out on the urban beaches of Kitsilano
Coverage includes: Itinerary Builder, Walking Tours, Traveling Green, Helpful Environmental Organizations, Downtown, Stanley Park, West End, Yaletown, Gastown, Chinatown, South Main (Soma), Commercial Drive, Granville Island, Fairview & South Granville, Kitsilano, University of British Columbia (UBC), Metro Vancouver, North Vancouver, West Vancouver and Richmond & Steveston.
