Vancouver Among World's Most Walkable Cities

Dec 19 2017, 12:43 pm

We all know that Vancouver is a great city for walking, especially if you live in the downtown core and yesterday it was named one of  the top 10 most walkable cities in the world by Frommers. It was the only Canadian city to make the list and 1 of 3 in North America, where car culture reigns supreme.

Whether you’re into walking or hiking, you won’t be disappointed in Vancouver, a city that seems to have been designed with exercise in mind.

Where to Walk: Take the picturesque False Creek shoreline promenade over to Granville Island to explore the shops, cafes, and Public Market. From here, stroll through Sea Village, the city’s unique houseboat community; cross the Stamp’s Landing footbridge beneath the Cambie Street Bridge; and end at the ScienceWorld dome. The 1 ½ -mile walk through Ambleside Park is a combination of water, coastal mountain views, sculptures, duck ponds, and Lions Gate Bridge, or stroll along Marine Drive for a selection of shops and restaurants.

A six-mile walk around Stanley Park lets you experience breathtaking views, inner city beaches, public art, lighthouses, and other city landmarks as you make your way around the peninsula shore.


Here is the complete list:

1. Florence Italy

2. Paris, France

3. Dubrovnik, Croatia

4. New York City, New York

5. Vancouver, Canada

6. Munich, Germany

7. Edinburgh, Scotland
