Capilano Suspension Bridge
Capilano Suspension Bridge

Vancouver's first tourist attraction, the 450 ft (137m) long, 230 ft (70m) high Capilano Suspension Bridge has created a thrilling experience for millions of tourists since 1889. It is part of a private facility and attracts more than 1.2 million visitors every year. The bridge is very impressive and sways from side to side as visitors walk over it, especially if there are a lot of people on the bridge at the same time. The bridge is right in the middle of the forest. All around are pathways through the trees, as well as educational, geological and historical displays and different types of First Nations art. There's also an amazing collection of totem poles and a transparent suspended platform, which is famously known as the Cliffwalk. Cliffwalk is actually the newest of the activities at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. This breathtaking cliffside takes you through rainforest vegetation on a series of suspended walkways above Capilano River to previously unexplored areas of the park. The park is in North Vancouver and is only a 15-minute drive from downtown Vancouver. If you are staying in Vancouver, the Capilano Suspension Bridge admission, with a free shuttle to the site, is also a convenient and popular option. The shuttle runs from downtown Vancouver, and the ticket covers admission to the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, including the thrilling Cliffwalk.
