Tips For Staying Near BC Place

Location
BC Place is a multi-purpose stadium located in Vancouver's downtown core on the north shores of False Creek. It boasts the world's largest cable-supported retractable roof, and hosts many events throughout the year such as the home and garden show, high-school football, the NHL Heritage Classic, music festivals and the Maple Leaf Monster Jam Tour, to name a few, besides being home field to Vancouver's football and soccer leagues. It's about a 7-minutes walk to Andy Livingstone Park, if you need some respite from the city, and 15 minutes (on foot) to Vancouver's Chinatown, if you're looking for some cheap and cheerful places to eat.
