Vancouver's oldest neighbourhood, Gastown grew from a single tavern founded by John 'Gassy Jack' Deighton back in 1867. Today, the district keeps/holds its historic charm and independent spirit. Victorian (related to the beautiful design and construction of buildings, etc.) houses a successfully growing fashion scene, extremely well collected decor fancy stores, one-of-a-kind galleries and some of the best food-related fare in Vancouver. It's a gathering place for beautiful locals and an ideal neighbourhood to explore on foot. Gastown lies along the north of the downtown Vancouver peninsula, from Richards east to Main Street, and south to Hastings Street.
This place is a great place to go for a walk, take pictures, shop or have some amazing food. Lots to see here and check out while spending a day or few hours. Walking through the area is good rain or shine. If you are not into crowds, then avoid this on a cruise ship day or a warm summer evening. The restaurants are some of the best in the city and have all kinds of foods.
