Granville Island is a good spot to spend some time. Arrive by boat or car, visit the market areas; glass blowers; spend some time at the waterpark. And if you want a treat, head to the Granville Island Hotel for a drink or a meal.

We haven't been here for a while and loved every minute of our return visit There are many different foods to try, and many unique shops to see. Won't be as long for our next visit.

Our Day at Granville Island was wonderful. So many little shops and the food WOW. The market had everything from Fresh Seafood, Bakery, Produce to a fresh cup of coffee. There was so many booths with locally made product. So many interesting little shops and restaurants. The Brewery was a great place for a sit down and rest.

Hire bikes and take a leisurely ride with the family round Stanley Park. The bike hire is really close and the ride safe with great views of Vancouver. Snacks and toilets available on the way round

A fun few hours at a foodie destination surrounded by many art studios. the central food market is filled with many upscale take out food places with gorgeous displays. Go early in day to avoid crowds.

Cute place to shop! Amazing market tons of things to shop for. Also a nice little farmers market and a few options for restaurants. We took the bus there and the little ferry back. The ferry cost a bit more but a lot less confusing. We had a really good time there.
