The Vancouver Lookout website says, "For a better view you'll need a pilot's license". How true! The view, of course, is of Vancouver and surrounding areas. The Lookout is an observation deck some 500 feet above the city offering a marvelous 360 degree view. Even the ride to the top is an experience: you ride up in a glass walled... More

A great way to see the city from up and above. As you walk around the glass windows read the information placards of what you are looking at with some history and facts. Even though it may be rainy and cloudy out do not be discouraged because once your up there you can still have great views.

a fantastic way to see a fantastic panorama of Vancouver the is a very reasonably priced attraction with great facts to learn whilst you feast on the view. Mountains, sea, skyscrapers, parks and stadiums, what a fantastic city. We saw the best of it on a fantastic sunny day. The lift up is an experience in itself! Great for photos... More

Good View of Vancouver from here. It was pleasant to view descriptions on what where are. The lake side view is good. Also the foodcourt is good :-)

The lookout is on top of the building, and you'd think it would need to be higher for a better view. It is a great lookout and the staff were great with our young child. We went up twice in the same day, in daylight and also sunset. I would go just before sunset as that was the best time.

This observation deck is on a tall building near Coal Harbor. The price is fairly steep, but if you go on a clear day, the view is worth it. One can see all of downtown Vancouver as well as much of the surrounding area. There are signs around the circular platform that help you figure out what you are seeing,... More

A good place to start to get orientated, it has both the viewing deck & a revolving restaurant. We paid the entry fee but could have avoided it if visiting the restaurant, which we did for dinner one night.
