Total Hunt Time
About 3 to 4 hours, depending on options selected
Once a pair of lonely sandbars at the entrance of Vancouver’s False Creek, today’s Granville Island is often listed as the favorite place to visit in Vancouver: a sparkling, one-of-a-kind multi-use area that blends industry, shopping and entertainment. In the early 1900s it was home to such companies as Vulcan Ironworks, Wallace Shipyards, National Machinery, Diethers Coal and Shipping, and Wright’s Canadian Ropes. These days, the action revolves around the Public Market, with its fresh produce, flower shops, and restaurants. Artist’s workshops abound on Granville Island; two breweries serve up cold ones; and the views of downtown Vancouver are unsurpassed. During your treasure hunt on Granville Island, expect to explore the Netloft and the Kid’s Market; visit Mama’s bench; pay homage to a totem pole, and much more.
Gather at Ron Basford Park, on the east side of the island.
