Forbidden Vancouver presents Prohibition City Walking Tour
Meet: Cathedral Square, Opposite Holy Rosary Cathedral at the corner of Dunsmuir and Richards
Half-price Tickets: $14.30
In 1917, Prohibition hit Vancouver harder than a slug of bathtub gin, knocking the city to its knees. Saloon doors swung closed for good, forcing law-abiding citizens into an underground world of bootlegged spirits and illicit activity. These ain't the kinda stories you'll hear on tour buses, nor the kind you'll read in guide books. Throw yourself at the mercy of Vancouver's oldest and meanest streets. But be warned, you'll need sharp wits - and an even sharper pencil - to survive in Prohibition City.
