One of Vancouver's best-loved neighbourhoods, Gastown is a
charming and historic area of cobblestone streets, small shops and
intimate restaurants. Gastown is also home to the Gastown Steam
Clock. Every quarter of an hour, steam pours from the top of the
clock and whistle chimes can be heard.
At 1,000 acres (around 4 square kilometres) in size, Stanley
Park is larger than New York's Central Park - and is home to over
half a million trees. First opened in 1888, the park has become a
widely recognised symbol of the city and is known for its beauty.
Yet perhaps its most famous feature is its large collection of
totem poles, displaying the impressive designs of the indigenous
peoples of North America.
Capilano Suspension Bridge
Located over the Lion's Gate Bridge in North Vancouver, the
Capilano Suspension Bridge spans 446 feet (136 metres) across a
dramatic gorge over the Capilano River. On its opening in 1889, the
bridge was made of rope and wooden planks; nowadays it consists of
wire and cables - which is perhaps just as well as it stands 230
feet (70 metres) above the water!
Top of Vancouver Restaurant
Located 33 feet (10 metres) below the observation deck of
the Vancouver Lookout, the top of Vancouver Restaurant offers a
wonderful dining experience. The restaurant revolves once every 60
minutes, ensuring you get chance to enjoy 360 degree views across
the city as you dine.
The Vancouver Lookout gives you chance to ride to an observation
deck 581 feet (177 metres) above the city where you can enjoy 360
degree views across Vancouver. Glass elevators take you from
street-level to the observation deck in only 40 seconds.
