By purchasing ticket you are allowed to come back up as many times as you want during one day. So we viewed Vancouver during the daytime and evening. Both great experiences, although Lookout isn't as high as NYC buildings. Lovely view of Stanley park and mountains. Recommended!

We stopped here as part of our bus tour and glad we did. Our tour included going to the top and spending about 30 min. to take photos and witness a spectacular view of the city. Definitely worth doing.

We went on a cloudy rainy day. The windows are huge and there is plenty of room to see everything. We could see Queen Elizabeth Park in the background, Stanley Park, downtown, Canada Place, the harbor, the cathedral and basically the whole city. I took a fair amount of pictures with an SX40 Canon camera. At home I have a... More

Our trip to the Lookout was included with our 2-day Hop On/Hop Off tour, otherwise we might not have visited it beause it's a little pricey by itself. Regardless, it is worth it if the weather cooperates. We visited on a sunny and clear day. took some beautiful photos, and really enjoyed seeing the entire Vancouver area from this vantage... More

I asked at the hotel where I could go for a great view of the city. After walking around the pier, we walked in to the Lookout. I love that the elevator went slowly to give you a fantastic view as you rose above the city. Once you are up there, it's really not a long walk around at all... More

A good way of seeing all over Vancouver. There was a short guided tour going on when we were there which was very helpful. The tickets were included in our tour and we were glad we went

This is a must picture stop you can get a very good view of the city. This is a paid attraction but well worth the cost.

The building has a great view of Vancouver and some interesting plaques about what you can see. Probably needs some updating (more information on the views would be great) and not sure the heaters going on a warm day was necessary. Worth a visit.

Was walking about near cruise terminal when we stopped by visitor center, they recommended we try here(Vancouver Lookout) I recommend buying ticket at visitor center - much cheaper than at lookout itself.

Staying in Gastown

Neighbourhood Profile
Gastown
A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's history a more lively presence here than anywhere else. Having been originally founded around a popular worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of Vancouver's best micro-breweries, creative cocktail joints, and corner bars can be found in this area. Classical charm suffuses its many vintage boutiques and the brick-built structures that an army of creative professionals call home.
