Granville Island, a Destination without the Journey

30 mars 2021

With travel restricted, many of us are dreaming of a getaway to a destination of waterfront dining, ocean views, and unique shopping and experiences. Quite frankly, we just want to get out of the house!

Well, all that, and more, is right here in Vancouver. 

From renting water crafts, kayaks and standup paddle boards, our Marina District and Granville Island Hotel has much to offer.

In the Net Loft, along the artisan district, and in studios across the Island, you'll find jewelry and clothing, both designed & readymade, or bespoke, as well as active wear, leather goods, children's clothing and more.

Speaking of children, the Kid's Market has over 2 dozen shops and activates for the little one, and in summer months Granville island's Splash Park is open daily.

Artists can be found in their studios, most of them open to the public, and many artisans are making their products right in their shops.  Did you know there are over 300 merchants on Granville Island?

Restaurant patios are open. The wine store, distillery, sake maker and brewery are all offering bottle sales, and of course, the Public Market and food offerings.

Whether you are lining up for Lee’s famous donuts, making a charcuterie board from Oyama Sausage, or doing a takeout from one of the chef owned market stalls, Granville Island is all about food - and if cooking at home is more your thing, whether you are trying out a classic recipe, or something more exotic, you will find the ingredients in the Public Market.

Granville Island truly is a destination without a journey. Right here in Vancouver.
