Isle de Granville
Granville Island is a de rigueur activity when you visit Vancouver. There are dozens of boutique shops, selling things like bespoke art, vodka and … brooms.
The main draw – and in many ways you will draw deep breaths – is the Market. There are dozens of food stalls, but the main attraction is the gob-smacking fresh fruit and vegetable sellers. They go beyond selling into virtual food art. You’ll know what we mean when you see it.
And while Granville Island is a short walk or ferry ride to downtown Vancouver, why not stay a night at the historic Granville Island Hotel?
The Granville Island Hotel offers the unique ‘island experience’ while being located right in the heart of the city. Travel by foot or vehicle to downtown Vancouver and the Vancouver cruise ship terminal in only minutes.
It often sells out, so book ahead. You can book here through Expedia.
