Walking Vancouver
36 strolls to dynamic neighbourhoods, hip hangouts, and spectacular waterfronts
by John Lee
Release Date: September 2009

CDN$ 19.95

Walking Vancouver shows you Vancouver as you've never seen it before, whether you're a local or a first-time visitor. The 36 easy-to-follow walks in this book guide you everywhere from Yaletown to Chinatown, Stanley Park to Queen Elizabeth Park, the Downtown Eastside's Carnegie Library to the Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia.

Kitsilano, South Main, the West End . . . hit the streets and dive in. You'll soak up history, back stories and architectural trivia, and get tips on the best cafes, bars, nightspots and fun spots. Whether you're looking for a trek in the rainforest, a waterfront stroll or a day of noshing and shopping, this book has it all.

Walking Vancouver is complete with maps and distance and difficulty level. The book also features appendices of points of interest and themed walks.

Excerpt from the introduction

Unless you've lived in Vancouver for more than 200 years, hitting the streets in the city you thought you knew almost everything about can trigger some eye-opening surprises, and raise more than a few questions.

For example: Why is the cenotaph located in what's now called Victory Square? Where did the first Greenpeace protest launch from? Who died in the old Hotel Georgia? Where is there a marker for the first official visit by a U.S. president, and why is it a memorial? Which much-loved building was once the Canadian headquarters of the Ku Klux Klan? Where is the city's best hotdog stand? And, of course, which are the best bars to visit on a merry trawl around Gastown?

Slip on your (preferably waterproof) walking shoes, tuck this book into your backpack, and you're on your way to finding out the answers. Just remember one key maxim: slow down and you'll likely enjoy it a whole lot more.
