BC Place Stadium
BC Place enjoys a prominent position along the Vancouver waterfront, and can be seen from ferries passing through False Creek. Some sightseeing tours of Vancouver pass by the stadium while moving between the nearby neighborhoods of Yaletown, Chinatown, and Gastown. The on-site BC Sports Hall of Fame runs tours of the stadium, which include behind-the-scenes access to the media lounge, locker rooms, and playing field, as well as the Hall of Fame sport-themed exhibits. Tours can be booked in advance, and capacity is limited to 20. Individual tickets for the BC Sports Hall of Fame—with no tour included—can also be purchased ahead of time.
