On Vancouver's North Shore, the closest thing to starring in a George Lucas or Steven Spielberg movie might be crossing the renowned Capilano Suspension Bridge.

Nestled beneath the North Shore mountains, the popular attraction caters to cultural tourists and thrill-seekers.

Just up the road is multi-faceted Grouse Mountain. Take the scenic Skyride gondola to the top and enjoy a wide variety of activities with an unparalleled view of Vancouver and the Pacific Ocean.

Capilano Suspension Bridge

Since 1889, the Capilano Suspension Bridge (3735 Capilano Rd) has attracted visitors with its 137m/450ft span, which sways 70m/230ft above the frothing Capilano River like a scene out of Indiana Jones. The bridge was originally built by Scottish-born George Grant MacKay, who would later become a Vancouver City Parks commissioner.
