Great view of the city and water. Abundant food choices. I could spend hours there, just eating, chilling and taking in the view.

If you have an afternoon, definitely make a point to visit Granville. Walk through the smorgasbord of food options and stalls at the public market, check out the local stores along the water, and end your visit with a stop at Granville Brewery, a staple...More

Took the aqua bus from the bottom of Hornby St for the 2 minute ride over to Granville Island (cost $6.00 return pp), much easier and quicker than walking over the bridge. Lots of craft stalls, shops and a fresh food market that has something...More

I think the place is a bit overrated, it is mostly a collection of overpriced stores. But the market itself is great and getting there using a small sea bus is a part of the experience.

Attached to Vancouver Downtown by a bridge, it’s interesting how the landscape dramatically changes once the bride is crossed into Granville island. You immediately feel you’ve gone to a small town with one story boutique stores lined the street, Neighbourhood cafes, and lots of artist...More

One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out,
Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios,
hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all
offer a plethora of activities and entertainment
options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the

Not sure of the accommodations at Granville, but it’s a nice place to look around. We stayed downtown (not far from Granville) at the four seasons hotel which gives you close walking access to Gastown, the seawall, Canada... More

I would avoid cars in Granville Island. Much easier and less of a headache taking public transport. Granville Island is not built for cars I think that taking the false creek ferry would be a better option.
