October is the perfect month to go sightseeing in Vancouver. The air is fresh and crisp and the summer crowds have dissipated. Now is your opportunity to check out all the museums, galleries and parks you’ve been meaning to get to all summer. In particular, downtown Vancouver offers a variety of unusual and interesting walking tours. So, in honor of the season, we’d like to share a list of some of Vancouver’s best treats for your feet.
Tour the City Step by Step
This tour of downtown Vancouver’s most interesting architecture starts at Canada Place by Coal Harbour. The tour then guides you to the Robson Street shopping district. The tenth and last stop on the tour is the Vancouver Art Gallery. Between art, architecture and people watching, this tour is a beautiful way to spend a day in Vancouver.
The Tour Guys offer free daily tours of select areas of Vancouver. Meet up with a Tour Guy
to guide you through the sights and sounds of Chinatown, Grandville Island, Downtown or Gastown. These guys work for tips, so they have to impress. Even if you are a long-time Vancouver resident, they may tell you something you didn’t already know about the city.
GPS My City has an amazing set of self-guided tours for sightseeing in Vancouver. Each tour is designed around a theme so you can choose the one that suits your taste.
These GPS tours will provide you with directions to Vancouver’s most interesting art galleries, landmarks, and outdoor art.
Several Vancouver neighborhoods are highlighted, too. Your smartphone will be your guide to Chinatown, Granville Island, Yaletown, Mount Pleasant and the University of British Columbia—just to name a few of the options!
Have you wondered what secrets Gastown holds? The theatrical troupes of Forbidden Vancouver will show you. Sign up to join the tour and learn about the lost souls of Victorian Gastown. If you want to jazz things up a little bit, try the Prohibition City tour. Tours last a little less than two hours and provide you with a 1 kilometre hike about town.
At 28 kilometres long, the Vancouver Seaside Greenway is the longest uninterrupted waterfront pathway in the world. Beginning at Kitsilano Beach Park and winding around False Creek, then around Stanley Park to Canada Place, the Seaside Greenway is an excellent workout for your feet and a wonderful way to see our beautiful city.
