Top ways to experience Robson Street
The area
Neighbourhood: Robson Street
Robson Street is a shopper's paradise. Whether a window shopper or a serious trendsetter, a fashionista or a dabbler, the crowd of independent boutiques, quirky one-off shops, and well-known luxury brands on Robson Street have something to cater for every itch in your wallet. As a result, it draws a diverse crowd, and the people-watching along this famous walking thoroughfare is a primary attraction. In between the clothing shops both high-street and budget-friendly are a number of cafes to lay down your load, as well as numerous specialty stores ranging in their wares from music, to art, to city souvenirs. Known as "Vancouver's Runway," if a new trend is on the rise, you'd spot it here first.

Robson street is a long street and one of the main streets in downtown Vancouver. There are many types of shops, supermarkets, fashion, alcohol and others. Our hotel was on this street and it proved to be a very convenient location. It was easy to walk to various venues as well as to catch public transport.

We loved Robson Street. Super high end shops where it meets Burrard like Tiffany's and as you travel South it started to change somewhat into smaller restaurants and chain stores to eventually getting a bit rougher. But, we found many goodies to buy, and a really good Italian restaurant by walking the street. I would go back again and walk further if I were back again to Vancouver.

Cutting through the centre of Vancouver, this street has lots of interesting shops & is a minute away from the art gallery. Well-recommended to stroll along.

At Robson Square there is an ice skating rink that you can use for free. It’s just $5 if you have to rent skates. If you haven’t skated for a while don’t worry, it’s just like riding a bike. Except that the bike has no wheels.

Robson Street is the street to visit for some nice restaurants or a place to shop til you drop or just windowgaze at what is on offer, and trust me there is a lot. The variety of shops is quite impressive on this street.

Nice variety of stores to window-shop along Robson. Also lots of places to eat too! More eateries as you head to Denman. More stores closer to Burrard.

This long street (2.5 km) is the go to place for downtown shopping, strolling, people watching, and grabbing a bite to eat while you're at it. It has a lot of mid-range stores like Aritzia, Zara, Lululemon etc. If you're looking for high-end brands ie Louis Vuitton, Chanel etc. then you need to go to a high- end department store like Holt Renfrew or Nordstrom. Both are within walking distance of Robson St. Also, some high end hotels house the boutiques of some of the well-known luxury brands like Prada. Robson St is not for those seeking luxury, nor for those on a shoestring budget. It sits somewhere in between. Many people come to Robson to stroll or to visit the shops without actually buying anything, and that's ok too! These are hard times for many people. In addition to the shops, there are plenty of food options from delicious ramen to French cafes, fast food joints, grocery stores, and everything in between. The previous reviewer seems to be perplexed as to how this street is a tourist attraction. Well don't tourists want to do a bit of shopping? From Canadian souvenirs, to clothing, books, jewelry, to home décor and more, chances are you will find something you like on Robson. It's a long street with a lot of stores! It's also one of the cleanest streets with the least amount of homeless people in the downtown core. An added bonus, it will lead you to Stanley Park, a must for any out of town visitor. To me, this street is worth the trip for the suburbs. I hope you will like it as much as I do.

Long road full of places to eat and small shops. I’m perplexed this is considered a tourist attraction or thing to do. It’s not at all scenic and the further you go from Stanley Park the more insalubrious it becomes. Like much of the west coast cannabis has been decriminalised and it’s done nothing to make the centre of cities places you would wish to visit.

Add this to your Vancouver itinerary. It's a nice area and loaded with high end shops. If you don't want clothing, go eat at Black and Blue. It will be a treat.

Great place for people watching, shopping and eating. We walked several blocks of Robson and loved just window shopping. Very good place to hang out. There’s some open cafes where you can sit and watch people and their dogs walk by.
