I wish I could share more about the Vancouver Heritage Foundation and the great walking tours they put on. For a few years, I’ve participated in many of their tours. Unfortunately in 2014, it was the year I didn’t get around to any tours. Either I was too late in registering or I was out of town for a month living a different life.
Coming up in a couple of weeks is Vancouver Heritage Week. The Vancouver Heritage Foundation is organizing a few walking tours and talks to celebrate Heritage Week.
They have a trio of walks happening on the last 3 days that feature Gastown & Hastings (Feb 20), Marpole & Hudson Street (Feb 21), and Cedar Cottage & Commercial Drive (Feb 22). [Register here for the walks]. They also have a backstage tour of the Commodore Ballroom lined up for Feb 21st. Then there are also a couple of talks earlier in the week featuring the Bloedel Conservatory (Feb 17) and the newly rehabilitated Kits Neighbourhood House (Feb 18). [Check out the Heritage Week page for registration links].
If heritage tickles your fancy, or you just want to learn more about Vancouver, then sign up for the tours or sit in on one of their talks. I’ve never been disappointed.
If you need more convincing about the walking tours, you can check out my posts about all the walking tours I’ve been on:
- Gastown Heritage Walks:
- Yaletown Walking Tour
- Railtown Walking Tour
- West End Walking Tour
- Georgia Viaduct Walking Tour
- Burrard Street
- Then there are the Hastings West and Hastings East tours which I divvied up into way too many parts.
You think I’ve been on enough walking tours? 🙂
