|About these ratings|
Overcome your vertigo and experience Vancouver the way the birds do. The Capilano Suspension Bridge is the oldest tourist attraction in the city (originally constructed in 1889), and the 450-foot long, 230-foot high bridge offers spectacular views of the Capilano River below. The fun doesn't end once you reach the other side of the canyon; more suspension bridges and daredevil activities await at the Treetops Adventure. Continue to tempt fate along the Cliff Hanger Walk, a path that meanders along the canyon's edge -- make sure to keep an eye on your kids -- or enjoy some entertainment offered by wood carvers, fiddle players and First Nations dancers.
Dangling high above North Vancouver, the Capilano Suspension Bridge is open daily from the end of May to the beginning of September, and from time to time throughout the rest of the year. Entry to the bridge complex costs up to $30 per person, though some recent visitors say that it's worth it for a stroll in the treetops.
