Hey everyone. I'd hate to sound like a scared-y cat. And I don't mean to offend any Vancouver residents here. But I felt the need to ask this question after doing some further research on the Vancouver area.
I've been to the city of Vancouver before. But I've never been on the streets of the downtown area alone at night.
This October I'm attending at concert at Rogers Arena. And I'm staying at hotel on the corner of Howe St and Drake St just north of the Yaletown neighborhood. It's an approximately 22-minute walk from Rogers Arena.
After the concert, would it be safe for me to walk alone along Pacific Blvd and through Yaletown in order to return to my hotel?
According to Wikipedia, there has been a rise in gang-related activity in Vancouver in recent years. So I have some concerns.
Do you guys think I'm being overly precautious?
