Escape to the City

As a local or a visiting guest, you’ll want to know what’s shaking in the city throughout the lazy days of summer. Whether it’s a public art project or a Sea to Sky adventure that is a quintessential Spectacular British Columbia experience, look no further than here. Take advantage of staying in the heart of the city at Fairmont Pacific Rim and consider any of these great activities to enjoy.

Discover Canvas Corridor

Just a short stroll from Fairmont Pacific Rim, take in all the high end shopping on Alberni Street that Vancouver has on offer. Choose from luxe labels like Tiffany & Co., Jimmy Choo, and Prada, but don’t miss Eihu Lane for a unique display of edgy, local street art. Wedged between Alberni and Robson Street, this unassuming back lane features a gallery of 45 works of art on back doors and vents known by locals as Canvas Corridor.

Take in the live entertainment while noshing on Executive Chef Damon Campbell’s shareable bites from his tricked out food truck and enjoying the terraced garden space with umbrella-topped tables, fire pits, and lounge areas serviced by the hotel’s hospitality team.
