Today's bridge post is a three-fer. This week I took a mini-vacation to Granville Island in Vancouver BC. It's a great destination tucked underneath the Granville Street Bridge. You have to weave around a bit on back streets to get under the bridge pillars, but the effort is well worth it. The island has shops, restaurants, parks, a waterfront hotel, the Emily Carr University of Art and Design, a huge indoor Public Market, and is home to Granville Island Brewing.
To the west of Granville Island is classic Burrard Street Bridge spanning False Creek.
To the east is the Cambie Street Bridge, with Science World in the distance. This historic glittering geodesic dome in East Vancouver was originally built as Expo Centre for Vancouver's Expo '86
All three bridges will take you downtown Vancouver for even more wonderful sights, tastes, and adventures. -- Margy
