Granville Island is a superb visitor attraction. It is home to specialty shops and a huge undercover market. The choice of eating places is endless, from diners, to lovely restaurants, to takeaway food. You will be entertained by all the street entertainers, singers, musicians, magicians, escapologists, etc. - there is always something going on. You can also take the little water taxis over to the other shore on English Bay, which is an experience in itself. It is a very busy area, though, so parking is a bit difficult, but if you are lucky you'll be able to grab a spot.
