If you ever find yourself in the Vancouver, BC area, I highly recommend that you make every effort to visit Granville Island for a day or even just an afternoon. I first went there two years ago and it’s become an essential stop on my trips above the border ever since.
Beyond the fact that it holds a favorite brewery of mine that brews one of my all-time favorite [seasonal] beers, it also grants a pretty spectacular view of the city. Oh…and a magical indoor market with every kind of mouthwatering delicacy you could possibly want to procure for yourself. Seriously. There’s this bakery there that does a salted caramel apple focaccia that will have you licking the bag it came in. Or maybe that’s just me.
Regardless. Go there. If my words don’t convince you, maybe my photos will.
