Granville Island is walking distance from the city. The Island is so picturesque and houses many restaurants and a fabulous food market as well as lots of arty fair.

Any place on the Island will gladly accept almost any form of payment, There is no set rate. The exchange rate will vary from shop to shop. Unless you are aware of the bank rate you may pay more than you need to.
