Vancouver Lookout is the perfect place to visit while you are in Vancouver, BC. Being up so high with a 360 degree view you are able to easily get your bearings of the city and visually plan out the rest of your visit. We could not decide if we wanted to visit the Vancouver Lookout during the day or at night, so we decided to visit at dusk. As a result, we were able to watch the city turn from day to night and catch one of the loveliest sunsets from the lookout.
While you are walking around the observation deck there are informational signs you can stop and read about each of the different neighborhoods throughout the city. Vancouver has seen such staggering growth over the past decade it is always fun to see how much the skyline has changed since our last visit.
There is no shortage of beautiful sites in Vancouver from towering skyscrapers, to beautiful parks, stately bridges, majestic mountains and plenty of twinkling lights. We loved being able to see Stanley Park and the Lion's Gate bridge with West Vancouver in the distance.
The beautiful color changing building is BC Place is a multi-purpose stadium located at the north side of False Creek.
One of the most unique qualities of Vancouver is its proximity to the mountains. I cannot think of any other major city where the mountains play such an integral part of its every day landscape. From Vancouver Lookout you can watch boats and container ships come and go, seaplanes take off and land and check out a different view of the ski resort or mountain you just hiked up or skied earlier in the day.
