Vancouver Lookout, Vancouver

(4.3/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our international travel planner, Vancouver attractions like Vancouver Lookout can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Its similar to Seattle's space needle but still got to check it out since your on vacation love that you get to see the whole city is not as much busier than the space needle.  more »
  • The view of the city is pretty good and you pay the ticket can be accessed all the times you want during the day, but I honestly think that it is expensive for what it is. I think it can be omitted and not be missing much.

  • I went to dominate the Vancouver during the day, but I.. I feel this is just. Because height is not that expensive? Surely, if the night is lit up at night and without high it might be nice.

  • Great views of the city and beyond on a clear day. The price is very reasonable and no queues (did it on a weekday though).You can also leave and come back later on the same day without having to pay another admission fee. It's a huge plus as you can take in the views during the day and then come back at night. Overall, a great experience. Would highly recommend!
  • I'm always a bit skeptical about touristy places (I love doing and exploring what locals do) but others convinced me to go and I wasn't disappointed. Beautiful 360 view of the city. We spent an hour or two there just admiring the view and taking photos. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Great view. With one ticket, you can go up there all day, anytime you want (leave it and come back later). Both day and night views are awesome.
  • Nice, but the windows could be better. Guided tours are nice! There is fixing their elevators. You might be able to take the freight elevators, if others are busy.
  • It was such an easy process to get to the top. We didn't have to wait at all for elevators in either direction and we went on a Saturday. There were enough people guiding us that we never felt 'lost'. The views are wonderful and there's a photo opp at every window at the lookout. Just a cool experience that we made last about 45 minutes from start to finish. The only negative is there's no official gift shop. But there's food at the base floor and above the lookout.
