loved the cool eclectic atmosphere.
lots of interesting shops and outlets, plenty of stuff to interest the whole family.
also nice because you can spend the whole day there--there're places to eat, or bring your own lunch and picnic and peoplewatch.
seems like many of the stores are quite pricey though, so perhaps just window-shopping for most.
Robson Street, hit me smack full on, I heared someone say all human life is here and they are right from the rich and poor east and west, but they all want to be on that street, Robson. The different resterants with all the smells the street vendors trying to earn a living. I remember playing chess and lossing but who really losses when you feel a part of the hub of life itself. To those who have not been to Vancouver I say visit all the main attractions and enjoy them but after you have been to Robson Street all the rest will fade a little in conparison.
Like most other city downtown shopping areas, Robson Street is usually crowded and full of tourists. I liked this place because it was very clean and some of the stores were unique to Canada (e.g. Jacob). If you are in town for a few days, you should definitely check out the area. It is not that big so you should be able to walk/shop around in half a day or so.
A short walk from English Bay (very awesome!) Robson is great for shopping and dining, and things of that nature. Vancouver's diversity is most apparent on Robson Street. There are all kinds of souvenir shops and, small street bands every once in a while. We saw a rather interesting store: Rubber Rainbow Condom Company. Took a picture, but deleted it.
