Top Ten Things to Do in Yaletown

Heritage meets modern describes the historic district of Yaletown. Yaletown provides the serenity of an oceanfront seawall, along with the largest selection of trendy patios and award winning boutiques. As a great escape within the big city, Yaletown offers an opportunity to explore acclaimed restaurants and eclectic shops set along heritage brick walkways.

Originally the 1886 western terminus of the Canadian Pacific Railway, today the warehouse district of Yaletown is both vibrant and walkable, making the gleaming residential towers surrounding the area some of the most coveted in the city.
