Vancouver Neighborhoods: Yaletown

  
The first time I took you through a little walk in our diverse city was back in early December when me and Jen strolled Chinatown together.

Today I will show you another lovely neighborhood : 
Yaletown. 

Not so long ago, Yaletown was known as the industrial part of the city stocking warehouses for the Canadian Pacific Railway. 
In the 80's Yaletown changed its focus from an industrial neighborhood to a trendy up and coming place to be as young urban professionals started moving in the area. 
Today's Yaletown is known as Vancouver's upscale trendy neighborhood full of unique boutiques and cutting edge restaurants.

So in my opinion what can you do in Yaletown?
Among many other things, you can shop for amazing jewelery pieces and local designers at FineFinds Boutique...


You can try painting yourself a masterpiece while sharing a bottle of wine among friends at Raw Canvas...


Get you eyebrows done by threading  (a Middle Eastern method for getting rid of unwanted facial hair. WARNING : it hurts like a bitch or at least it does for me) at Bombay Brow Bar...


Stop by Blue Water Cafe for celebrity spotting ( Vancouver isn't named the Northern Hollywood for nothing)


If you want a more casual lunch, Earls will satisfy you..


 Or get a Quickie at Section 3 ( for you perverts it's not what you think)


Stay tuned cause I have a lot more to show you.
