They call Granville Island “Vancouver’s Town Square.” If you took all the essential elements of Vancouver, condensed them, and put them in one area, you would end up with something like this unique urban oasis. It reflects the city’s multicultural, multiethnic vibe and is incredibly exciting and fun.
Take a stroll around the area and try to take it all in: waterfront restaurants, galleries, theatres, studios, shops, cafes, and the market, which is one of the most popular features of the island. Check out the produce that grows in the area, see what the fishermen caught in their nets that day, pick some flowers for your darling, grab something to eat, or simply relax by the water and watch the world go by.
Take the kids to the Adventure Zone or the Water Park, catch a show, visit the brewery, or rent a boat and go out on the water. On the way back, take the colorful Aquabus and enjoy a 25-minutes tour of False Creek, which will allow you to see the city from a fresh perspective.
