About 15 to 20 minutes from downtown Vancouver is North Vancouver's most famous attraction, the Capilano Suspension Bridge. This popular spot sees some 800,000 visitors each year. The original bridge was built in 1889, and although it's been replaced since then, there's been a bridge here ever since. Swaying 230 feet above the Capilano River, the plank and cable bridge stretches 450 feet from one side to the other. Other attractions at the park include the world's largest privately owned collection of totem poles, totem carving demonstrations, hiking trails, their Treetops Adventures, the Cliffwalk, two restaurants and a gift shop. Come late November, Canyon Lights takes over and makes for a stunning light exhibition that's just in time for the holiday season.
