False Creek & Granville Island

False Creek is best enjoyed on foot or by bike on the beautiful seawall that borders the waterfront, providing stunning views of the city in all directions.

Not to be missed is the renowned market at Granville Island. Originally an industrial area, Granville Island is now a hotspot for cultural and culinary explorers. Home to the bustling Granville Island Public Market, take a tasting tour to meet the vendors and sample local specialties. You’ll find many restaurants, artists’ studios, theatre, breweries and independent shops. Right on the water, this is also a popular spot to launch off on a paddle around False Creek, or tour aboard one of the adorable mini-ferries cross-crossing the water.
