Check out the Capilano Suspension Bridge!

One of the first things I saw when I came to the city was Vancouver’s oldest tourist attraction. The Capilano Suspension Bridge, originally built in 1889, stretches 450 feet (137m) across and 230 feet (70m) above Capilano River. Since then much has been added to the twenty-seven acre park. Of the many things to do, Treetops Adventure is the park’s newest attraction – seven suspension bridges through the evergreens taking you up to 100 feet (30m) above the forest floor.

Guided nature tours, the Kids’ Rain forest Explorer program and Living Forest exhibit enhance this unique rain forest encounter. Enjoy musical entertainment and First Nations carving demonstrations. Take photos at the Totem Park and with the Capilano Tramps. Top it off with a visit to the gift shop full of quality merchandise from all over Canada and great homemade fudge!
