Very charming Island with shopping and food options including the public market that has many eating options (including fresh fish). Definitely worth the visit. We decided to walk there and ferry back.

First time in Vancouver. Friends told us, "You MUST go to Granville Island." They suggested it had "a lot of artists." So we went. It was crowded and a real pain to drive into and to find parking. You might be better taking Uber. Quality...More

A wonderful mixture of quaint, obscure and amazing describes the goods on sale here. Very busy at times so I would suggest leaving yourself plenty of time to explore the variety of stalls, shops and items for sale.
