It's a bridge...

Yes, an impressive one... But a bridge nonetheless. Try seeing it from below on the cycle path on the edge of Stanley park.

This bridge is an iconic part of Vancouver. If you have time to cycle or walk over and take in the views below and beyond, it's a great thing to do. If you don't simply drive over and take it all in. The views are fabulous.

It's a bridge that connects the city to North Vancouver and has a couple concrete lions. The centre lane can accommodate traffic in either direction if there is a problem. The Lion's gate bridge is a landmark of Vancouver. Just another bridge to me.

You have to go over the bridge to cross over to get to the Capilano suspension bridge , to get to Whistler and the North shore properties. No doubt a lovely bridge to travel on or seen from a distance but a traffic nightmare during peak hours. Tourist driving over it does not help in mitigating the woes the locals... More

It is going too far to say that the Lion's Gate Bridge is Vancouver's answer to San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge, but the bridge is a Vancouver icon which you will see as you enter into the city from the sea. The bridge is best seen from a ship's deck on a bright, clear summer morning. If coming into Vancouver... More

Amazing to see from Stanley Park. Even more amazing when taking a cruise, as the ship passes under the bridge to exit and enter Vancouver port.

It's a bridge. Gets you from Stanley Park to North Vancouver. It's green. I'm not sure it's a tourist attraction and perhaps shouldn't be because it's main purpose is to support commuter traffic. The added burden of tourist just taking a drive from one end to the other just seems to overwhelm it's capacity with consequent stifling traffic congestion. All... More

Opened in 1939, this is the Gateway bridge both entering and leaving Vancouver. it is best seen from a ship--many now see it from Cruise ships. In high winds the bridge does move about a bit but nothing serious (eg. like the former Tacoma Narrows suspension bridge!) While the bridge is iconic to Vancouver and has a lovely entrance from...

This is a very magnificent bridge to travel under or go over. We have seen it both ways. But do not go on the bridge during rush hours in the morning or afternoon or you will miss to much of your precious visiting time stuck in bumper to bumper traffic.
