I highly recommend the Olympic Village Eating Tour. Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable and the the 5 stops selected for food sampling were outstanding.

Variations of store-made ice creams and different kinds of pizzas, a walk through Vancouver neighborhoods on the cusp of gentrification, and an interesting guide made the tour a success!

blend has made it a go-to spot to find an eclectic
collection of entertainment, from theatres and
cinemas, to antique stores and last-minute kitsch

one of the more higgledy-piggledy areas in terms of
what you'll find, making it a fun area to explore and
