I always feel like I'm on holidays when I take the foot ferry across to Granville Island. It's just a great little escape whether you go for an hour or a day. Lots of things to see and do but I my favorite is to walk up the street and treat myself to something special at PICA. At the market, I don't think Siegel's Bagels can be beat. Have your bagel outside while you listen to the various buskers. So enjoyable!

I'm pretty partial to Pike Place market in my own hometown, but Granville Island has its own great flavor, sights, sounds, and smells! Likes: Nightlife and dining scene, artist workshops, and float homes. Dislikes: aggressive birds on the hunt for french fries and tourists feeding them. If you experience a good weather day in Vancouver, don't miss this place!

Love Granville Island.. perfect to go there on the aquabus from downtown.
The market is loaded with lots of great vendors and mouth watering food. There are a few good restaurants on the Island as well.
Great place to go get groceries, or hang out (eat, drink, shop, enjoy entertainment).
Can't get enough of the Island!

Rent a bike and cycle around Stanley Park - keep going around the bay and eventually onto Granville Island, a lovely way to spend a morning, getting to the island in time for lunch at the market, yum!
