    Another touristy spot, but a bit more authentic. This is an area of refurbished wearhouses which houses tourist souvenir shops (the best ones I have seen), yacht supply stores, restaurants, etc.

    Granville Island with Burrard Bridge in Background

    Once the home to a industrial park. Granville Island has been transformed into thriving destination. It is home to a harbour which moors some of Vancouvers boats as well as the public market.

    Granville Island, a true highlight

    Inside the central market area

    Not to be missed.

    Go for the shops and the galleries, for the great food and local products, for the coffee shops and the water views, go for the bustling atmosphere ...but go!

    Granville Island Brewery

    As you enter Granville Island to your right you can't miss the Brewery. For a fee you can have a tour of the Brewery and sample some of the brews they make.

    Under the bridge, there's Granville island with a food market and some galleries and theaters. Oh, and don't forget the brewery! Taste the honey-beer.

    Stanley Park and the Totems Poles

    Totem Poles

    The Totem Poles are a bit cheesy, but the island is an excellent oasis and provides superb views of the Vancouver skyline
