This is a nice place to get a bird's eye view of Vancouver from across the water! It makes a lovely hangout too.

Observation decks are always fun places to visit to get a different perspective on a city you're visiting. We came here a few years ago when we were at a conference and we really enjoyed our time here. The price of admission was a bit steep, but such is life and you roll with things while on vacation. The view is pretty amazing though and it was really nice to see Vancouver lit up at night. It's a nice observation deck to visit if you're in town.

You know what’s kind of crazy? Up until now, I’ve never visited the Vancouver Lookout. Despite being in the city countless times, despite visiting the Harbour Centre and Top of Vancouver Restaurant countless times, I never took the opportunity to come here. I guess part of my rationale, especially when attending the revolving restaurant, was “well, I can pretty much see everything here – why go to the very zenith of the tower?” Hey, you have to admit that line of thinking kind of makes sense! So, what finally led to my visit? Basically, I had an afternoon to kill before meeting my grandparents at YVR. After spending a fair amount of time exploring historic Gastown (see my earlier review on this site), I decided to continue playing “tourist” and attend the Vancouver Lookout. The tower’s proximity to Gastown made this an easy choice. Thus, I ambled over to the Harbour Centre, paid my admission and got whisked up some 450 feet in a glass elevator (in a mere 40 seconds) to the Lookout. Be aware that your ears may block up on the ride! In any event, the views you get up here are absolutely stunning. Walk the full 360 degrees and see unparalleled birds-eye views of the North Shore mountains, bustling downtown Vancouver, historic Gastown, and Coal Harbour. On clear days such as I had, you can see why Douglas Coupland has called Vancouver the “City of Glass.” The many towers glint and sparkle in the sun. For those who want a little more context to their viewing adventure, there are information panels posted throughout the Lookout that explain and show how the area of Vancouver you’re looking at has changed over time. Helpful interpretive guides are also available. Indeed, this is one way to learn about the city’s ever-changing landscape. Overall, I enjoyed my touristy experience. While this is probably something I wouldn’t return to again and again, it’s definitely something you should do at least once. Because admission tickets are good all day, you might want to return at sunset for another perspective; however, I’d recommend attending the Top of Vancouver Restaurant for a lovely dinner AND stunning views of the city.

As are city pass holders, we visited Vancouver Lookout where near our hotel. We enjoyed full 360 degrees beautiful and spectacular view of Vancouver and saw cruise ship docked there. The only drawback was long queue on that day. However, definitely worth a visit.

No lines with a quick dizzying ride in an elevator with a glass door. Loved the different vantage points as you move around the observation deck. You can see forever up there. We ended up with a beautiful day, sunny with some clouds. There was a little gift shop at the top and bathroom for your convenience. Worth the trip up if you take your time and enjoy the view.
