Fodor's Review

Resembling a flying saucer stuck atop a high-rise, the 553-foot-high lookout has one of the best views of Vancouver. A glass elevator whizzes you up 50 stories to the circular observation deck, where knowledgeable guides point out the sights and give a tour every hour on the hour. On a clear day you can see Vancouver Island and Mt. Baker in Washington State. The top-floor restaurant (604/669–2220, makes one complete revolution per

hour; the elevator ride up is free for diners. Tickets are good all day, so you can visit in daytime and return for another look after dark.

Getting High - Legally

I hesitated at first. But the elevator trip delivered me to a high that took my breath away and three rolls of film! I joined in one of the guided tours too. Learned a thing or ten. And hey - you can come back and view Vancouver by night. All worth it!
