Neighborhood
Discover Vancouver's artsy side at Granville Island, once a grungy industrial area shunned by most locals. One of the city's main entertainment and tourism hubs, this pedestrian-friendly "island" is actually a peninsula with numerous walkways lined by artist studios, theaters, bars, shops, and fine art galleries. Get a feel for Vancouver's street life at the public market, where dozens of permanent retailers and day vendors offer everything from locally sourced fresh vegetables to handmade crafts. Check the website for a printable visitor's guide and a full listing of upcoming special events and performances. Put Granville Island at the forefront of your travel plans using our Vancouver travel itinerary planner.

  • This is the type of place I would take out of town visitors to. I go here all the time for theatre fresh food and stunning views of the city.  more »
  • We took the ferry to the island and was an added treat. The island had many markets where one could find a variety of treats and souvenirs. Would go back for another visit next time in Vancouver.  more »
  • We took a water taxi (3 minutes) from downtown. The island is not very big, but it is full of interesting places to explore. Enough to keep you amused for a few hours.  more »
