Here are the main cafes and restaurants in the city. Along with clothing stores, jewelry, and shoe stores, and entertainment centers and nightlife of Vancouver.
Geographically, the downtown of the city is not a large area, built on a peninsula, surrounded by docks. The whole area can be seen by walking.
The northern suburbs connect to the downtown, through the Lion Gate Bridge, that crosses the Burrard Inlet. On the southern side of the downtown, on False Creek, it connects to the rest of the city through the Burrard Bridge, Granville Bridge, and Cambie Bridge.
The main street of the downtown is Robson Street, a large shopping street in the city. There are many malls, stores, clubs, cafes, and restaurants.
There is another street worth a visit - Commercial Drive.
Vancouver's downtown has a few quarters. The three interesting ones are Gastown, from which Vancouver was born, Chinatown, the settlement of Chinese immigrants, and Yaletown, that has turned from a quarter of warehouses and workshops to a trendy and popular area.
