Visit Granville Island
Granville Island is a peninsula on the southern side of False Creek, featuring some of the best views of Downtown Vancouver. The peninsula began as an industrial wasteland and was converted in the 1970s into one of Vancouver’s art and culture hubs. The main attraction is the Public Market, where vendors sell artisan crafts and food, making it the perfect spot for lunch or a souvenir. There are over 300 businesses on Granville Island, so there’s sure to be a little something for everyone.
Known as “the world’s longest uninterrupted waterfront path,” this makes Vancouver’s 28 km seawall the longest in the world. In theory, you could start walking along the seawall at Granville Island and continue past Olympic Village, then Yaletown, walk around the entire waterfront of Stanley Park, and end at Canada Place - and you would have still missed portions of the seawall. This is the best way to experience the city and many of its parks, with stunning views from beginning to end. If you’re up for adventure, we recommend renting a bike to complete more of the seawall in a single trip - otherwise, you’d have your work cut out for you!
One of Canada’s largest universities, UBC is located on the University Endowment Lands at the westernmost side of Vancouver. The university is over 115 years old and has gorgeous architecture, rose gardens, beaches, and the Museum of Anthropology. Pacific Spirit Regional Park is an enormous dog-friendly park with 73 km of trails in an old growth rainforest. There’s so much to see at UBC that you’ll feel like you entered a whole other city!
