I am suprised at the other user reviews. I am a 21 years old female and I find this street really lame in comparison to shopping areas in Spain, Italy, France, Japan etc, places where I have been shopping. The clothing shops are no better than any that you would find at a local mall. However, having grown up in Vancouver, there is no better alternative in this metropolitan. There are some decent restaurants on Robson, but better ones can be found elsewhere in the city (Broadway, etc). There are some good tourist style sweet shops on the street. There are also some tourist shops where you can find tourist items.
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.
I love hitting Robson Street whenever we visit Vancouver. The atmostphere is awesome! Cool shops and GREAT people. All the stores are super helpful and there's great food too! It's like an all in one shopping stop. Way better than any mall.
I visit Robson st as often as I possibly can. It is home to the absolute best make-up store in the entire world(MAC). You can find all your clothing needs there. They have many stores just off the street you can visit too.Like Dipt, Soul to Soul, Off the Wall and the camo store.They also have a custom clothing store called Bang-On. They have the absolute best restaurants like Cactus Club, Red Robins and Hooters. All of these places have excellent outdoor patios. One of my favorite placces to eat for lunch is the infamous Crepe express! They have the best crepes in the entire world, and you get to watch them make it! That and other reasons is why Robson st is unarguably the absolute best shopping area in B.C.
If you are a real shopper (I mean 5th Ave, Madison, Rodeo Dr., Robertson, Melrose, South Coast Plaza, etc.) you might be pretty disappointed here. This place resembles something more like 3rd St. Promenade in Santa Monica. Just to set expectations, don't expect any of the hight end stuff (yeah they have a Ferragamo, but the real stuff is off Robson). There were a couple stores that are worth mentioning - the Nike-like store (I forgot the real name) which carries a bunch of the limited eds and the Boy's Co., which is carries stuff similar to Barney's or Fred Segal. The other only good things are the restaurants towards the north end of the street, especially Hapa Izakaya. Food was fantastic - Japanese small plates (tapas). The waitresses were not only hot, but super-friendly too (won't find that in LA or NYC). The atmosphere was ver chic with contemporary easter designs and loungey electronica music.
I like Robson Street in Vancouver BC because there are so many good things you can find.
There are lots of fashionable,interesting stuff I can buy. Also, there are so many different restaurants so everytime I go I can taste different kind of food.
That's why I like there so much.
The Sea Wall goes all the way around the small island just outside of downtown vancouver. Its perfect for rollerblading, biking, walking or watching the fireworks in Aug. or New Years. Also the sunsets and sunrises are breath taking, perfect for a date.
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.
