The shops on this corner get more foot traffic than any other in Canada. Things were different back in the '50s, when so many German delis and restaurants opened up that for a time the street was nicknamed "Robsonstrasse." Beginning in the 1980s, these older stores were replaced with high-end clothiers and new restaurants and gift shops with signs in Japanese. Whether you're into shopping or not, Robson Street is still a great place to walk and people-watch, listening to the babble of Cantonese, Croatian, Japanese, and other tongues that surrounds you.
T-shirts, coffee cups, pencils, pajamas, slippers, notebooks, bath sponges, sweatshirts, hats, magnets -- most anything you can think of, with cows on it. They also have some delicious ice cream.
The picture at the top of this page is of me in front of the store with their adorable cow model. I'm the one in the pink sweater ;)
The most vibrant street in the city, in the heart of downtown Vancouver, cafés, shops all what you need
If you dont like to shop, its still worth to check out the street, they have some pretty neat architectures.... at one corner, people could gather and play chess ... so classy
The main street in Downtown Vancouver. Shopping, watching people and drink a beer at a bar. A lot of things are going on here.
I was in Vancouver just when America's war against Irak started out. There were manifestations in Robson Street, that momentarily distracted the shoppers from their Saturday afternoon activities.
Just walk down Robson St
Much Like Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles, but like there, did not want to spend a dime on that road, but nice to know u been there, done it. Maybe just a stop at the Starbucks.
