This new guidebook is an invitation to explore Vancouver in an entirely new way. 111 Places in Vancouver That You Must Not Miss is a guide for locals and experienced travellers that reveals the fascinating, unusual, and little-known places of this story-filled city.

Where did Harry Houdini hang out – literally? What do those secret stones hidden in a seawall mean? Which is the oldest independent record store in town? And why is there a Cadillac half-buried, tail fins-up, in someone’s front yard?

Often referred to as Canada’s ‘Evergreen Playground’ Vancouver is a unique and breathtakingly beautiful city nestled between the ocean, mountains and forests. Its pristine fresh surroundings and mild laid-back climate has always attracted artists, writers, thinkers and tinkers, and dreamers of every variety; over time they have left their indelible creative mark on this relatively young city. The outcome is a treasure trove of hidden sculptures, secret tree forts, quirky coffee shops, undiscovered galleries, eclectic stores, totem poles and bike lanes that wind around floatplanes and houseboats.

City Farmer staff welcome authors.

From the glistening new glass and chrome towers of Downtown, to the worn cobblestone streets of Gastown, and the red pagodas of Chinatown, each neighborhood in the city contributes to a rich cultural mosaic. Diversity is not only celebrated in Vancouver, but it’s as widespread as the city’s frequent rain showers.

Just as the seawall, which winds its way around Vancouver’s iconic Stanley Park presents a new and fresh attraction around every corner, 111 Places Vancouver puts you on a path to discover new insights and perspectives on Canada’s beloved west coast gem.
