This is Vancouver's own "It could be anywhere in the world" shopping street, complete with all the same clothing chains as any city in the US and Canada, and many of the same as in Australia and Europe. The restaurants don't scream quality, perhaps because it is always so ridiculously crowded that they don't need to be good to do well. If you want to shop, I would much more recommend the local designers shops on the following streets: West 4th; West Broadway; Main Street (Between Broadway and King Edward); Commercial Drive (Between Venables and Broadway); Gastown: Dream, Dutil, etc... I would highly recommend picking up a Modern Urban Guide map, which is free from most local designers shops, and many local restaurants.

A good place to spend a lazy couple of hours. It's got starbucks, (tsunami) sushi, earls, milestones, cactus club and all the big name stores (gap, lululemon, roots, club monaco, A/X, mexx, esprit, bebe, The Bay, entrance to Pacific Place...). Good jumping off point for Granville street, Gasville and Stanley Park. It's never a wrong turn to end up on Robson St.
