Vancouver Lookout, Vancouver

4.3
Vancouver Lookout offers panoramic views of the lively downtown, a lush park, and the harbor. The famous astronaut Neil Armstrong opened the lookout in 1977 (a cement block with his footprint stood on the viewing deck until renovations, when it disappeared). Hop on a glass elevator that will take you 168 m (553 ft) above street level. You can opt for a self-guided tour, or ask the friendly staff to point out some of the city's attractions to you. If you're hungry, consider dining at the revolving restaurant on the top.

  • We visited at sunset and it was a great way to get a view of the city and the areas that surround the city. The staff is friendly and it seemed clean and safe. I'm not a fan of heights, but, I knew I ...  more »
  • Usually avoid such attractions. But it was really worth. Above all, it is worth highlighting the following: the ticket is valid all day. So come morning when not much is going on. And then again at sunset

  • It's worth going up these towers in every city that has one - gives you a good eagle's view. This one has beautiful views & we loved seeing the connection Vancouver has with the sea, the mountains & t...  more »

  • This was an amazing experience. Something to consider is instead of paying to get tickets for the lookout, take the elevator & go straight to the restaurant. The restaurant revolves so you’ll get to see a 360 degree of Vancouver without having to move at all! You do have to order something from the restaurant though, but it will be way less pricey than buying tickets for the lookout.
  • Excellent first stop if you're visiting Vancouver. You can see the most iconic structures from the lookout, and read a little bit of history of Vancouver. The ticket is valid though the whole day so you can visit many times. It features a small restaurant and tourist information booth.
  • EPIC! The ticket you buy is valid for the entire day. So you not only get to see the city from up top during the day, but also during the night. I would recommend going here during the winter because of the short days (so you don't have to wait till 9.45pm to get up) and because of the snow. If you are lucky enough to go here when it's snowing, you'll have the view of your lifetime. Secret: What they don't advertise is the elevator ride. You get to the top in a glass wall elevator. You will zip up with cars and people on the street shrinking right in front of you. That was amazing!
  • Reasonably priced and conveniently located near waterfront skytrain/transit station. Gets quite busy during the summer months and peak times. Worth going up during sunset time to get nice views of the skyline and sun while it is setting.
  • Loved the views of Vancouver city. The best part is you can get a ticket for entire day and visit multiple times during that day. Make sure there is a good mix of sun and clouds when you plan to visit 😀
