We stayed at the Shangrila Hotel. So we would go around and walk downtown a lot. It is very scenic and also very safe.

We live in Vancouver and love staying downtown. So many hotels, with good rates in the slower months. Walk around the streets, the harbour, play tourists in your own city. Excellent choices of restaurants, bars, coffee shops.

Enjoyed going around but avoid East Hastings St as this is where there are a lot of homeless/drug users definitely don't go here at night. Went to Chinatown really disappointing we were really looking forward to authentic food everywhere looked really dirty.

I was there in September and I don't believe Vancouver has much snow. We were told many Canadians retire to that area because of the "warmer" winters. However, Whistler has snow almost all year round. It is about 90 min... More

Vancouver is a "walking" city with great public transit. Whistler is a great little town, but if you only have one day, I would skip it as it's quite a drive there & back. Instead, I would enjoy Stanley, Granville Island... More
