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.

    It is kind of the same idea of the space needle of Seatle, but it is not that high. You can see the whole city from here. Most of the tours include this in the package.  more »

    We have been to other lookouts but I guess all of them are a raffle ticket until you are actually there. We had a beautiful day in Vancouver during our visit so we decided to go up there and see the v...  more »

    The food was expensive as expected but actually delicious, which was a wonderful surprise. The value is great. Unlike some other cities, the restaurant is actually higher up than the 'observation deck' and it only takes one hour to do a full revolution and see the whole city. So there is no need to pay for the observation deck ticket as you can simply go up to the restaurant, even just have drinks and see the same view at your pace and take pictures from your table whenever you want. I would recommend going for a late lunch on a nice day, the light would be perfect and you'll have much better options for great seats and it will be quiet. They played quiet jazz music in the background, it was very relaxing and just a wonderful experience.

    Came up for after dinner drinks. Very nice views and romantic location. It's a bit funny how it's managed though. They say they can sit you by the window but then 1/3 of the tables were empty. We had to wait for someone to leave before we could sit.

    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!
