Place needs an upgrade. Many tourist shops and very crowded. Parking is terrible so it is best to use public transport. 1 hour is enough for a visit.

We took the wrong turn of the road and ended up with Granville Island. We are all glad that it happened. Lots of food, shops in the market. Interesting place to spend a few hours with friends and family.

Great place to shop for souvenirs and dining! Short 10 minute cab ride from Canada Place. Check out the public market for fresh fruits, meats, cheeses, and a plethora of other items. Kid friendly too!
