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.

We crossed the bridge twice to & from Stanley Park. Its a great suspension bridge with good views across the harbour. You'll see shipping & cruise ships, and seaplanes taking off.

Great to take a walk over this impressive structure. Not quite as impressive as the Golden Gate, but close. A marvel in itself how they build a bridge like this over a large body of water.

Similar to bridges in San Francisco and similar views as well! Interest view of Stanley Park the north shore and the city, depending on which direction you are heading....good choice when heading to West Vancouver or even Whistler!

This bridge was built for his wife for her birthday we were told. There are two lions as you enter the bridge area . Beautiful scenic views from the bridge. The bridge connects Vancouver to west and north Vancouver and points beyond.

this is the bridge that all ships sail under to get into Vancouver dock yard. As we walked by we say a Naval ship coming in which was very good. We also saw seals in the water under the bridge. But when all said and done, it's a bridge.
