Granville Island - Review
Granville Island isn’t exactly an island. It is more of a Peninsula that is also one of the most popular shopping districts in the city of Vancouver. It is quite easily accessible by land as well as via ferry and is an exciting place to be at in the city.
Shopaholics will find this place to be a piece of paradise. The retail stores of varied types dot the area and make it the ideal place for the fashionista for sure. But there is also a large number of quirky, interesting shops selling unique or handmade items that make great collectibles and souvenirs. The range is astonishing.
With over 70 amazing restaurants, it is also a haven for all the food lovers. You should try out the locally made ale as it is fresh and delicious. If you are neither a foodie nor a shopaholic, you will be able to find a decent theatre scene as well as cinemas here. In short, there is a little bit for everyone.

Granville Island, Vancouver Reviews
A good place to spend few hours. Explore art and crafts, hand crafted items and souvenirs. Found parking to be free in most places. Buy fresh farm produce and get a full view of the waterfront scenic location. The best part is it is not very far from downtown. Carry food from home, if on a budget and sit-back and relax while enjoying the artists performing. A must visit place when in Vancouver. Grab a few hand made stuff and gift it to friends and family.
Such a great place to visit. Lots to do, see, buy, and eat! Come early to avoid huge miday crowds. Free three hour parking is a definite bonus. Best on nice weather days and great for children... lots of places for them to play including a Kid's Market. Super fun!
Granville Island is one of those places that when in Vancouver, your have to go. Nice shops (more boutique type) and plenty of food options. A nice area to walk around with family who enjoys looking at different types of food eats.
Absolutely AMAZING! I go here every year and they have so much variety of food and culture. There are many different gift shops and places to sit and look over the ocean. Love it there.
This place is amazing. The open markets are a delight. If you want good fresh produce or sea food there is no place better. There are a countless amount of cool little shops to browse and explore. One can easily spend a few hours in the area, if not the whole day. Many restaurants to choose from, each has it’s own unique atmosphere and delicious food. Of course the absolute best thing to do in the area is sampling the large variety of selected crafted brews the island has to offer. I enjoy taking the sea taxi to get around the area. This place is must do on a list of experiences for Vancouver.
