Davie Street, off Granville Street is an average looking neighbourhood with shops, services, restaurants and pubs. It ends at English Bay which is surrounded by Condo and apartment buildings and a few hotels. Davie street is the center for Vancouver's gay community, which i only figured out from the rainbow flags hung along the street! There was a copy and print shop about half way up that also offered fairly cheap high speed internet access which i took advantage of for about an hour before meeting up with a friend who lives in a condo at the end overlooking the beach at English Bay where you could spend hours watching the boats and the people along the seawall.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
