The cosmopolitan heart of one of Canada's major cities, Vancouver Downtown serves as the commercial, cultural, political, and financial center of the region. Bordered by water on three sides, this area contains the majority of the city's historic buildings and modern architectural gems. Several subway stations provide easy access to practically any other part of Vancouver, while water taxi operators link the area with other centrally located neighborhoods. In addition to major sports facilities, this downtown quarter houses the city's top restaurants, shops, galleries, and museums. Visit the website before your tour for a complete listing of upcoming downtown events.
