One of the tourists destinations in Vancouver is Granville Island. Precisely sepaking, this is not an island as it is not completely surrounded by water. It is rather a peninsula. Nonetheless, it is called Granville Island and it is located right next to the downtown Vancouver in the direction of Richmond. The Granville Island is filled with restaurants, public market, arts district, various shops, hotels and various performing arts theaters. With beautiful waterfront walkways and endless marina on the False Creek, the island is surely a palce not to be missed in Vancouver. Since it is very close from the downtown Vancouver, the island can be easily reached by bus, but it is not impossible to reach there by walking.
