After a brief stop at your hotel for a quick nap and change of clothes, head out to Gastown, one of Vancouver's oldest neighborhoods, along the north of the downtown Vancouver peninsula. The district is still filled with old-world charm thanks to its Victorian architecture, cobblestoned streets, vintage lampposts, and famed steam clock. With tons of boutiques, plenty of galleries, and some of the city's hottest restaurants, there's a lot to see and do here.
Also, if you're into quirky serial killer stuff (and who isn't?), you might want to check out the nearby Vancouver Police Museum, which is housed in the city's former morgue and boasts a collection of 20,000 items, various exhibits on crime, and creepy but fascinating walking tours of the neighborhood during which you'll learn all about the city's history of bootlegging, prostitution, and murder.
