This is like Main Street, or maybe it is Main Street? Lots of people walking around day and night. There are a lot of shops around. Lots of restaurants and coffee places to stop by if you get hungry or cold

You can find all kinds of shops here. We went especially to Robson Street by Sky Train from the airport on our last day in Canada to eat at 5 Guys. It was well worth the trip : the burgers and the chips are devine !!!

Yes there are expensive shops on Robson (mostly on Alberni) but there are also moderate priced shops. Something for everyone, lots to see.
