    Really cool island with a huge public market that has a bunch of excellent food options. You can take the Aquabus to get to and from.

    Bob is a fun, knowledgeable, personable guide and the variety of samples and flavors was amazing! I would highly recommend the tour. Definitely worth the time and money!

    Fab way to cross the river, hop on and off, and marvel at the sights on both shores too. Very easy to use and other passengers are very helpful

    Science World has an interesting mix of science. There are many interesting exhibits. We visited with our young nephews and nieces and they really enjoyed it. It is obviously a small city exhibit. Enjoy it for what it is. A good rainy day attraction.

    Lovely walk in the rain. Got to see the inlet, lots of boats, small ferries, seals, birds, Canada geese. Don’t forget to get some gelato, lunch at Sunny side cafe, and try the wonderful salmon at Longliner fish stall at Granville island market

    We decided to sample some of the beers on offer. We chose the ten 5oz beer selection. This gave us the chance to try beers we would have been unlikely to otherwise order. It was a great little spot.

    The staff was friendly, and the cocktails were very (very!) good for being a tasting room at a distillery.

    We enjoyed a whisky flight and a gin flight, and then tried one of the cocktails.

    The spirits were all good quality, and the staff was knowledgeable.

    They also provided recommendations for dining places, as well as other cocktail bars in the area.

    Definitely worth visiting, while you are touring the island.

    There is a dusty park out the front patrolled by geese and inside there are security guards to deny you access to the platforms, so you have to enjoy the infrastructure from the people side and no train side. There is some good information about locations and travel and some food and souvenir stands. [The Rocky Mountaineer has its won station about 1.5km away]

    This end of Vancouver is probably where I would want to live, if I lived here. It just seemed less congested, had nice parks, was serviced by mass transit, and just looked so clean and pleasant.

    We took the False Creek Ferry here to the Science World stop and got out to look for anything remaining of the Olympics. But, after the Olympics, the area went through a massive redevelopment and all the temporary Olympics events and places were dismantled. Progress stops for no one.

    Things get really crowded and hectic around Granville Island and it was so refreshing to find some peacefulness out this way.

    This is a gem of a find if you love sports, or history, or learning about the local community.
    It was very hard to find, but once we found parking and did a little stroll up all the steps you could see a few small signs. Looks for the Terry Fox Memorial if you're on foot.
    Loads of displays detailing amazing Vancouver athletes from the first nations all the way to present day. I didn't know so many of our Canadian stars hailed from BC.
    There is a great interactive room where you can try your hand at all sorts of different sporting activities. Be prepared to bribe your kids away from this area and bring your competitive spirit!
    You get a peak into the stadium where the BC lions play too!

    Enjoyed the Cherry Blossoms Festival 2024….a line of lanterns dotting the curved pathway along the so many cherry trees….colorful wishing papers dangling in the wind as the cherry trees shed the lovely pink petals…sitting under the cherry trees and watch the rainbow mini ferries back and forth along False Creek…had a wonderful time there but quite crowded because it was a Sunday….try weekdays if possible.

    Went to see CPR Engine 374, but, unfortunately, the exhibit was already holding Fall/Winter hours and was closed on Tuesdays, the next-to-last day of my Vancouver visit. However, the locomotive is glass-enclosed so I was able to spend half-an-hour taking photos through the glass. One great addition to my personal Canadian history portfolio!

    Stayed here for a day and a half meeting. The room was lovely, clean, and well appointed. The front desk staff was helpful and attentive to questions. Upon arrival, I wasn't sure where to park and had stopped to try and figure it out, a hotel worker (valet?) was out to help me quickly and gave clear instructions. During the meeting we were served breakfast, lunch, and dinner, it was delicious. Turn down service was provided and I was surprised/pleased to receive a mindfulness card on my bed (what a special touch). Housekeeping included small touches like organization of my toiletries that made returning from a meeting surprisingly calming. I was disappointed that if you are not a member you have to pay for Wi-Fi but that's a small complaint. Overall, I was impressed with the service, privacy, careful/thoughtful housekeeping, and welcoming nature of this hotel. Thank you.

    What you see is, well, what you get from the experience. There are actually 2 distinctly different perspectives. Up above, crossing the bridge with the mass of humanity (presumably trying to get to work) a closer look shares an historical perspective. We did not travel by car above as our perspective was more water-level oriented (via False Creek ferries).

    But did you know this 1932 era bridge (it has been updated so breathe easier as you transverse it) gives its "propers" (i.e. recognition due) to the brave BC soldiers who served the country and the world during WW II.

    If you cross the bridge (street level) then you will see the lighted braziers to remind us all of the heat and light the soldiers would have had as their mainstays at that time. Burn those braziers forever and never let us forget the sacrifice of your kin.

    However, from the underside of the bridge (think False Creek here), we see a different view of this 75+ year old beauty with many stories to share. Just as a reminder, the bridge has had attention paid to its infrastructure. Let it rest there. Believe it is whole and will endure. Don't think twice about it as you travel across the span.

    Captain Vancouver and Sir Henry Burrard-Neale are the "heavies" for which this span is so named. These were British officers/soldiers (no surprise there, this is Canada after all) and, surprisingly, they both died at about age 40.

    A discovery here and there amongst them, a recognition well deserved, and the end-game is Vancouver bears Captain Vancouver's name. And so be it. Winners get to write history.

    Fast-forward to today: the bridge is a beauty when viewed from water level (courtesy of the ferry system) and the Art Deco design on display is pure delight. Brush all the politics aside, enjoy the vista from the underside of the bridge as it welcomes the great sea into the False Creek waterway.
