Jumping the Border to Vancouver

Vancouver Jumping the Border “What is the purpose of your visit?” asked the man in the booth, and I shrugged. “Lunch,” I said. “Just thought I’d pop over for an hour or so.” To border guards, this is not an acceptable answer. “Business” is a proper response. Or “vacation.” I should have luggage and an itinerary in hand. Anything else arouses suspicion. And so I’ve learned to lie. This last visit, I invented an old high school friend who was meeting me somewhere. Into Vancouver I love the...

Kitsilano: Vancouver’s Lovely Western Suburb

Kitsilano, or ‘Kits’ as locals know it, used to be the Vancouver version of San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district. Nowadays, it is still a fascinating area to visit and worth a day of anyone’s time. Defining the exact area of Kitsilano is not an easy thing to do. The boundaries are roughly from Blenheim Street in the west to Main Street north of 33rd Avenue in the east. What Kits certainly does contain is excellent beaches, an ample green space called Vanier Park, some impressive museums and excellent shopping opportunities. Kitsilano Beach...

Vancouver’s Commercial Drive

The lively 16-block area of Commercial Drive (between Broadway and Venables) is an enormously popular district with locals, but is often overlooked by tourists. The main reason for visitors to come here is to discover the most diverse mix of people, dining, shopping, and entertainment that Vancouver has to offer; in fact Commercial Drive might just be the most culturally diverse neighbourhood in Western Canada. Any walk along ‘The Drive’, as it is known by Vancouverites, will quickly show you that there is an almost complete absence of chain...

In previous years when I booked a ticket, I  had to queue to get in and the seats were taken on a first come first served basis. The tents are very airy and keep out the rain, but inevitably the sound of ship’s horns...
