The bridge covers a length of 1,823 meters, standing tall at a staggering height of 364 feet from the foot of the bridge to the top of the tower.
The view of the bridge during the sunset is quiet stunning while the view of the Vancouver skyline from the bridge itself, is like no other.

Lions Gate Bridge, Vancouver Reviews - Write a Review
You can find gourmet stuff and some very specific items you may not find in local stores. However, the prices are very touristic and sometime are too much. you can find wide range of delicate food items such as Italian pastas or Italian sausages. Also, you can find artistic and creative work their but at touristic prices. Also, you can visit the brooms factory which offers some very nice collection at as high as 400 Canadian dollar.
How do you rate a bridge? It is a beautiful, iconic structure with beautiful views. It is three lanes with alternating traffic flows. It is one of two ways on/off the North shore by vehicle (excluding seabus). The traffic is usually awful during rush hour times. Sometimes construction can cause massive gridlock for days on end.
Beautiful bridge, fun to bike over (especially down hill) However traffic is hell during rush hour due to it being 3 lanes
A true landmark for North Vancouver, great views while walking or biking over, planes overhead, ships below. There are some great photo ops from the north point in Stanley Park too
It's one of Vancouver's landmarks, however not as amazing as Golden Gate or Brooklyn Bridge. Just go to prospect view point and that's enough . Not worth the time and effort to walk cross . If you drive , the bridge is free both directions, but usually congested .
