Time Out Vancouver
I was commissioned to write Time Out‘s weekend city guide for Vancouver, Canada. Approximately 2,500 words this online guide included separate entries for Vancouver attractions, Museums and galleries, Restaurants and cafés, Bars and nightlife, Shopping and style, Sports and outdoor activities as well as recommending Hotels.
Long hailed as one of the world’s most livable cities, Vancouver draws visitors with its unique combination of coastal beauty, temperate weather and rugged mountains. Whether shopping Downtown on Robson Street, exploring the market at Granville Island, cycling the seawall around iconic Stanley Park, or sampling its exceptional Asian cuisine, there’s no shortage of things to do in Vancouver.
For Canada’s third-largest city Vancouver is surprisingly compact, but it still requires some initial orientation. The West Side, West End and West Vancouver, for instance, are all different places with their own personalities. The West Side, from Ontario Street to the tip of tony West Point Grey, includes old-money neighbourhoods like Shaughnessy, but also laid-back Kitsilano’s restaurants and bars, beaches and spectacular views. The West End, between Downtown and Stanley Park, is also home to the city’s Davie Street gay village. Residential West Vancouver and North Vancouver together constitute the North Shore, which is crisscrossed with hiking trails through lush coastal mountain forests. And East Vancouver includes distinctive, diverse neighbourhoods like mid-Main and Commercial Drive, offering everything from trendy vintage and bespoke fashion to local boozers and hipster brewpubs.
