Discover Vancouver's artsy side at Granville Island, once a grungy industrial area shunned by most locals. One of the city's main entertainment and tourism hubs, this pedestrian-friendly "island" is actually a peninsula with numerous walkways lined by artist studios, theaters, bars, shops, and fine art galleries. Get a feel for Vancouver's street life at the public market, where dozens of permanent retailers and day vendors offer everything from locally sourced fresh vegetables to handmade crafts. Check the website for a printable visitor's guide and a full listing of upcoming special events and performances.
