Vancouver, BC, Canada | Part 1
Since Vancouver is so close to Seattle, we decided to hop over the border and do a little exploring. We ended up in town for only 24 hours, but we liked what we saw.
One of my friends who used to live in Vancouver sent a lot of suggestions our way, and it sounded like Gastown would be a fun place to start. Turns out, the Gastown Grand Prix was happening while we were there - the streets and restaurant patios were packed with spectators, which lent a very vibrant (albeit crowded) vibe to the neighborhood. We snacked our way through Chill Winston and The Diamond, both of which had really great cocktails and small plates. Then we wandered through the neighborhood while keeping our eyes on the the bikers swooshing by (they go so fast!).
