Vancouver - Fairview & South Granville (PDF Chapter)
This is the Fairview & South Granville chapter from Lonely Planet’s Vancouver guidebook.
Start in Queen Elizabeth Park – the entrance is at 33rd Ave and Cambie St – and stroll north down Cambie St into the shop-and-restaurant-lined Cambie Village area. This is not a touristy district, so you’ll get a good glimpse of local life.
- weave uphill in Queen Elizabeth Park to snap some signature panoramic photos of Vancouver’s dramatic, mountain-framed cityscape
- line up with the locals and then faceplant into Vancouver’s (and maybe Canada’s) finest Indian food in Vij’s; lamb popsicles included
- bask in the sun with a beer and a hot dog while catching an afternoon Vancouver Canadians baseball game at Nat Bailey Stadium
- restaurants & bars
Coverage includes: Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment and Shopping.
