The Basics

The Vancouver Lookout is an excellent place to familiarize yourself with the city, as most of Vancouver’s main attractions—from Stanley Park to the Harbour Centre to Grouse Mountain—are visible from the deck. Information plaques beneath each window reveal more about the prominent sights within view. Visitors can purchase an admission ticket to use when they choose, or join a sightseeing tour that includes access to the Vancouver Lookout.
