    When we visit Vancouver, Granville Island is always our favorite place to go. We love Granville Island Tea Co. and all the delicious places to eat. The shops are all great, and views of the city spectacular.

    Went on a weekday to avoid the crowds. Good mix of food & craft vendors. Everything we tried was delicious. It was definitely worth the short boat ride.

    It's great to feel like a kid again when you're riding a colorful and fun water taxi and enjoying the sights and sounds of the harbor.

    While autumn in Vancouver can often be cold and damp, if you are fortunate enough to find a dry day, come walk False Creek. since I didn't have time to do the whole thing, I concentrated on the SE corner, where I had appointments. Some great views from here, both natural and man-made (please see photos). Couple these sights with a flat walking surface and the fresh sea air, and you have a great walk for local and tourist alike.

    Went with my two teenagers and a 6-yo daughter. Many interactive activities - everybody will find sth interesting. We all had a great time playing with different puzzles and learning at the same time.
    Spent there almost 4 hours.

    Missed a bit things related to cosmos and space exploration.

    Great experience. We had a party of 13 consisting of adults and teenagers. We were seated outside quickly at two tables. Enjoyed the beer. Good burgers. Somehow one of the kids' orders was missed, however the waitress was fantastic and got the order in as soon as it was brought to her attention and our bill was adjusted without our asking. Food menu is limited, but good and was served quickly.

    I was expecting more of a hockey arena type of feel. This was total opposite. It's not steep like that so you don't feel like you are going to fall down the stairs. :) Feels very open and actually comfortable. Great place for concerts, loved it. Bring $$$$ the food and liquor VERY expensive.

    We've done an annual private event with Liberty since 2016 and Lisa, Rob, and crew have been amazing every year. Their service is exceptional, cocktails are top level, and the best craft spirits around.

    The setting is fun and welcoming with great atmosphere. Recommend for events of drop in for a cocktail!

    Located near the eastern end of False Creek, this is a great example of architecture from the railway age (about 100 years ago). Only a few paces from the Skytrain Station, so take a moment to a look at this piece of history before resuming your bike/hike.

    From our hotel, we walked over to the Olympic Village and wandered over the bridge to the other side. Vancouver is a very walk-able city. It was a beautiful, sunny day in Vancouver. Probably the most walk-able city I've ever visited. So pretty, so clean and the people so nice.

    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!

    We had seen the stadium from the Vancouver Lookout and decided to walk to it on a rainy day. It's a great place to spend a few hours. The displays are interesting and in some cases inspiring when you follow the walk by a Canadian cancer sufferer. The interactive sections are good and range from motor racing to hockey and basket ball. The view of the football pitch and stadium impressed us too. The fact that you see a bobsleigh and realise how "fragile" they look makes you realise the difficulties of the sport. We were also pleased to see displays on First Nations sports. Well worth the admission fee and there are concessions for some groups e.g. seniors.

    Very nice, roomy casino, with two levels of slots are far as the eye can see and whatever table games you like. I found the drinks at the bar to be a bit overpriced, but you come here for the experience I suppose.

    If you are walking/hiking/biking the seawall in this part of Vancouver, you probably want to plan for rest breaks. This is a great place to do just that. While it has been about a year since I've been this way, it still seems a natural to stop here, catch my breath, and enjoy the views before continuing west.
    If you are curious about the history of this park and other amenities available, please see the excellent review immediately below this one - no sense me repeating what PookyCake has said.

    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.
