Yes it's touristy, but you do a get lovely view of False Creek and arguable Vancouver's best food market & toy store. Granville Island is a great place to enjoy westcoast cooking & for the kids to play and browse.

Granville Island is mostly known for their market which serves a fantastic selection of fresh produce and vegetables, so make sure you bring a big appetite and your camera so you can take awesome pictures.Recommended for:Foodies

Jump on a small tug ferry and for a few dollars go shopping at Granville Island, enjoy lunch or dinner or sit on one of the many decks and enjoy a cool drink, take in a play or enjoy some live theatre. Cross the harbour to Beach Avenue and walk to Stanley Park or into the downtown core, or just sit and relax in the park. Great area for kids.Recommended for:Family Travelers

We explored Granville Island on a Sunday morning and wish we had allocated more time here, there is just so much to see and so much to do. Located in the False Creek region across from downtown Vancouver, the island boasts its own atmosphere and flavor. Formerly an industrial area, the historical reminisce of its past is still visible in its architecture layout and design. Today, the Granville Island is a congregation center for arts and crafts, performance arts and theaters. The famous Granville Public Market is a popular attraction on the island, it has endless aisles of vendors selling fresh produce, bakery, tea and even handmade crafts of sorts. Along the streets of Granville island, there are many boutiques and arts and crafts stores selling unique creations by local artists; street performances with all sorts of interesting instruments can be found at random open spaces on the island (they are really very good); performance festivals, theaters and schools can also be found here. A truly wonderful place to embrace art and support local performers.

I've been here twice now and my favorite stop is at the Granville Island Public Market for some good eats. Parking can be tough to find on the weekends, so be patient driving around to the different lots. Granville Island is fun for the whole family! Just beware of those aggressive sea gulls. They are nasty and will dive in to eat any food you accidentally drop on the ground.

Stroll through the lively market, browse boutiques or picnic with the pigeons on Granville Island, one of the most popular spots in Vancouver. Beyond the market, there are enough boutiques, restaurants and little galleries to make winding through the picturesque lanes worthwhile.

You can't say you've been to Vancouver if you haven't been to Granville Island. It's where you will find nature meets the locals. You could come down and feed the birds, take a stroll around the market, or take the ferry across the False Creek, or even have a cup of clam chowder sitting on the benches outside. Options are endless here.

Granville Island is a former industrial area now transformed into a centre of arts, theatre and food in Vancouver. This small "island" houses Granville Island Public Market (a rival to Pike Place market), several small theatres, a few restaurants, a brewery and a ton of independent craft and artisan boutiques. Wonderful place to spend time on the weekend!
