Granville Island is one of my favorite places. Aside from being a ubiquitous Vancouver attraction, it’s simply a great place to spend an afternoon because there is something for the whole family. Cool shops and galleries, public art, buskers, the food booths in the Market, yummy restaurants, the spray park, False Creek, boats, a playground, kids market, Adventure Zone and of course people watching.

However, the one thing that my kids love doing best is tormenting the birds; it is always a highlight of their trip. I almost feel sorry for the gulls and the pigeons but judging from the amount of food they managed to scavenge, they are doing just fine 🙂
