Established the same year that Canada became a nation, Gastown grew into Canada's third largest city and one of its most cosmopolitan. But the Gastown district today retains its historic charm, independent spirit and distinctiveness. There’s no mistaking Gastown for any other area of Vancouver, or of Canada for that matter.
Vancouver began here. So should you. Stroll down its cobbled streets. Explore its historic buildings, courtyards and news. Enjoy its unique shopping, nightlife, attractions, and special events.
