At the top of a gentle rise up from the water, the intersection of Georgia and Granville streets is considered Downtown's epicenter, and it's always bustling with activity. Georgia Street runs east–west, past Library Square and Rogers Arena (home of the NHL's Vancouver Canucks), straight through to Stanley Park and the Lions Gate Bridge (which leads to the North Shore and on to Whistler, a two-hour drive away). North–south Granville Street is a pedestrian-friendly strip of funky shops, nightclubs, and street-side cafés, with a few pockets of grunge to keep things feeling real. From this corner of Georgia and Granville, there are many key attractions within a five-minute walk, including the Vancouver Art Gallery, Robson Square, and Pacific Centre Mall.
