False Creek is a finger of water jutting in from the sea through English Bay and forms the southern and eastern border of downtown Vancouver. Bridges at Burrard, Granville and Cambie cross False Creek. The bridges are eminently walkable and provide excellent platforms for taking pictures of the Vancouver skyline and environs. A seawall walkway circumnavigates the entire False Creek waterway and is frequented by walkers, joggers, cyclists and skaters alike.
Sights on False Creek include the Science World, BC Place stadium, Rogers Arena, Edgewater Casino, Yaletown, Granville Island, the aquatic centre, and many restaurants and bars.
I’d strongly recommend renting a bicycle and touring around False Creek. The seawall can take you as far as Kits Beach and Spanish banks to the North and to the south you can circle Stanley Park.
