Capilano Suspension Bridge
Author: Julie Thompson | Last Updated: 23 Mar 2020
Take a walk on the wild side by crossing the Capilano Suspension Bridge, one of Vancouver’s well-known tourist attraction sites. Despite being one of the world’s longest (450ft) and highest (230ft) pedestrian suspension bridges, walking on Capilano Bridge is not as scary as you would imagine as it has thick steel cables that are firmly embedded in concrete. This engineering marvel offers splendid views of the Capilano River below and the ancient rain forest. If you visit during the winter holidays, you will be treated with a sparkling array of more than one million fairy lights. This suspension bridge is a very popular attraction, so make sure to arrive early in the day. Make time to peruse what must be BC’s biggest souvenir shop on your way out. To get there, there is a free year-round shuttle bus from downtown; check the website for scheduling details. Buy your tickets online to avoid lining up at the entrance.
