Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year City break Shopping Sightseeing & culture Visiting friends or family

Customer Travel Tip: Kerry Park, Jack Block Park, and Gas Works Park are 3 fascinating locations if you are looking for great cityscapes and photographs. Visit the above places during magic hours i.e. 30 mins before and after sunrise and sunset. Better to visit in June through August because the weather would be better.

Liked: great cafes all over the place, great place for cityscapes, the origins of many great companies and artists, great location, i.e. the entrance to Alaska, Canada, etc, for Eastern Asians especially.

Disliked: it feels kind of creepy in the streets at night with the homeless people and some strange mentally-challenged weirdos wandering around. Not all the homeless people are bad or dangerous or mean, but some of them fight in the streets sometimes.
