“A good way to learn a bit”

A good way to learn a bit about Vancouver and maybe decide where you want to visit. Around the lookout there are plaques with information about the city. I went at night and the view was beautiful.

“Excellent views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

Worth going to this high rise lookout. The admission ticket is for all day. I went during the day and again at night. It would have been interesting if I could have gone back at dusk for great photos. It is located downtown 1 block from the waterfront.
360 unobstructed views of Vancouver city and mountains. Can also see Burnaby in the distance.

“An amazing view of Vancouver”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

I've been to a lot of observatory, and I would say this one is very impressive! Although I wouldn't recommend paying 15$ to go to the top of the city, you can have a beer at the restaurant for half of that price, and you get to turn as it is a revolving restaurant! Very good place for a date, or just to observe Vancouver.

“Good views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012

The views are fairly good up at the top, it doesn’t compare to some skyscrapers in other cities but still offers decent views of Vancouver itself.

To get the best value out of your ticket, firstly either go online to find a discount voucher or find one in a city magazine. The attend in the morning when it is less busy for some views during daylight and then return after dinner for a night time view as you ticket is valid for the whole day.
