Admission at this major North Shore  attraction (604/985-7474, daily 8 a.m.–dusk in summer, 9 a.m.–5 p.m. the rest of the year, adult $30, senior $28, child $19) is a bit steep, but it’s one of Vancouver ’s most popular sights. The first bridge across the Capilano River opened in 1899. Today, several bridges later, a wood-and-wire suspension bridge spans the canyon some 70 fearsome meters (230 feet) above the Capilano River.
Allow at least two hours to walk the Capilano Suspension Bridge, step out onto the numerous cantilevered decks, take the Treetops Adventure suspended walkway, and wander along the forested nature trails. Back near the main entrance, native carvers display their skills in the Big House, and you’ll find the requisite gift shop and eateries.
To get there by car, cross Lions Gate Bridge, turn east onto Marine Drive then immediately north onto Capilano Road, continuing to 3735 Capilano, on your left. By bus, take number 246 north on Georgia Street or hop aboard the SeaBus and take bus number 236 from Lonsdale Quay.
