Situated between the world-famous Stanley Park, Vancouver's cherished English Bay Beach, and the downtown business district, the West End is a dynamic, densely populated community overflowing with activity, day and night.
The popular Robson Street shopping area is known throughout the city as the place to "see and be seen." It is a major tourist destination and is filled with upscale boutiques, trendy clothing stores, restaurants and coffee shops. Denman Street is another popular shopping haunt, lined with funky shops, inexpensive dining, movie theatres, and the local community centre and library. The downtown business core is just minutes away, making this area an ideal home for office workers and car-less Vancouverites.
