What you'll do

Take a peek behind Vancouver’s big tourist attractions and feast your eyes on a few of her hidden gems as revealed by true locals. Follow your guide across the colorful crosswalks at Vancouver’s famous Rainbow Crosswalk to explore the trendy stores and neighborhoods of the West End. You can’t go wrong on Robson Street, where diverse dining ranges from ramen shops to seafood grills. Navigate Granville Island market with the help of someone who speaks the lingo and enjoys delicious fresh produce made by the locals, all fresh from the ocean or oven. Perhaps a walk past the heritage-house beachfront of Kitsilano is more your style, offering the chance to blend in with the beachgoers. From May to October and for those really ready to earn their ‘local’ status, head to the Richmond Night Market, on every weekday and bustling after dusk.
