West End Travel Guide

West End

Robson Street, Vancouver's prime shopping boulevard, runs from Downtown into the West End, a partly residential and partly commercial district. The West End has Vancouver's prettiest streetscapes and harks back to the early 1930s when it housed the affluent middle class: trees are plentiful, gardens are lushly planted, and homes and apartment buildings exude the character of that era. Vancouver's large gay community has a major presence here, too. There are lots of restaurants and cafés along the main arteries: Robson, Denman, and Davie streets.
