What an adorable little neighborhood! Lots of shops and galleries... coffee shops and places to stop in for a beer. The market is awesome. The selection of produce was amazing! This would be a great place for a date! But I think it would be great to visit Granville Island any time! Definitely worth the trip!

Granville Island is picturesque, has nice artsy shops, good food and a great eclectic market. If you are passing through the city especially in the summer, you have to do a few hours here. Parking can be a bit taxing but you can take the bus and the walks to Granville Island along the water are lovely. Nice place to... More

Take the water bus from Burrard or Olympic village to Granville for a fun little river cruise. Granville Island market is closed on Monday, but quaint artsy dhops are open. Check out the new graffiti painted silos -very cool. Lunch at Edible made our morning walk there perfect!

Great Improv Centre, make sure you get good directions and would recommend going early to see all the shops. We would recommend the Keg Steakhouse for great service and food!

Food - street entertainment - shopping and a very upbeat market with lots of amazing fare - parking is a pickle at times but it's worth the trip - Lots of amazing restaurant experiences within paces of you - Seabus to downtown is easy to take but grab a Gelato first!

Granville Island market I'm talking about. I visited it with my girlfriend after seeing most of the top things to do in Vancouver. And as fresh as all the produce that is shown and sold, I can't help but think that 'it's just a market'. Markets can be found anywhere really, but anyhow this is still a nice place to... More

Make Granville Island a part of your journey,we always find art to enjoy, some in the midst of the creative process, friendly shopkeepers and imports of all kinds. On this trip I found "Maiwa", with Indian fabrics and bedding, cotton clothing, rugs and ironworks. All at reasonable prices and with helpful salespeople willing to let me sort through until I...

Loved every bit of it. Take the harbour tug, very reasonable prices to get around. The best meat store ever. Also fantastic cheese store too. All sorts of eclectic trinkets. Great bars and restaurants too.
