Not packed in a bus. Not herded with a group. Self guided walk is the SAFEST way to sightsee!

Kitsilano Walk (Self Guided), Vancouver

What better way to spend the day than sightseeing and a little leisurely shopping? The Kitsilano area is the perfect place for this, with the trendy West 4th Avenue where you will find traditional restaurants and cafes, clothing stores and great book shops. This popular street has been voted the best area in Vancouver in several surveys. It is a relaxing, blasé district, less bustling than downtown Vancouver, and you can explore it unhurriedly.

Check out the Burrand Bridge, a wonderful Art Deco structure built in the 1930’s that connects Kitsilano to the downtown district. Don’t miss a visit to the excellent Vancouver-H.R. MacMillan Space Center which features a wonderful laser-light display.

Head out to Kitsilano Beach, which is the most popular of Vancouver’s beaches. It boasts Canada’s longest swimming pool, an outdoor salt-water pool which is open throughout the summer months. The beach also has a superb playground and volley-ball facilities. You can even hire a quad to explore the long beach comfortably. Dine in The Boathouse restaurant on the beach, which offers magnificent views of the North Shore Mountains and the Burrand Inlet. It serves delicious fresh seafood, steaks and light brunches.
