Overcome your vertigo and experience Vancouver the way the birds do. The Capilano Suspension Bridge is the oldest tourist attraction in the city (it dates back to 1889), and the 450-foot-long, 230-foot-high bridge offers spectacular views of the Capilano River below. Visitors call it thrilling, exciting and an overall great experience. 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. With this canopy walk – set among the park's 250-year-old Douglas fir trees – you'll have the chance to walk 110 feet above the forest floor, from viewing platform to viewing platform. Continue to tempt fate along the Cliffwalk, a set of cantilevered and suspended walkways that meander along the canyon's edge. Though recent travelers praised the unique experience the attraction offers, visitors aren't as pleased with the high admission price or the limited parking. To avoid the school crowds, plan your visit in the morning.
Dangling high above North Vancouver (about 7 miles north of downtown), the Capilano Suspension Bridge is open daily; hours vary seasonally. Entry to the bridge complex costs CA$42.95 (approximately $33) for adults, CA$26.95 (approximately $20.75) for kids ages 13 to 16 and CA$14.95 (about $11.50) for children ages 6 to 12. Parking costs CA$5 (about $3.85) per vehicle. If you would rather take public transit, you can hop on the SeaBus in downtown Vancouver and take it across the harbor to Lonsdale Quay. From the quay, you can take the No. 236 bus to Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. The park also offers a free shuttle service from several locations in downtown Vancouver to the park. Shuttles depart every 15 minutes. For a complete list of hours and prices, visit the Capilano Suspension Bridge website.
