    Hey guys!

    I'd like to take a good picture of the downtown with the mountains in the background. Do you know where are the best viewpoints?

    Here is the kind of picture I wanna get (I wasn't high enough):




    Any help would be welcome

    The Queen Elizabeth Park is the highest point (?) of Vancouver. Maybe you could have a better view from the observatory ?

    (I could add some other places, but i'm too lazy to write it in english )

    Which observatory are you talking about? The H. R. MacMillan Space Centre?

    To give you an idea, here's the viewpoint from the Queen Elisabeth Park (in summer, with Rogers Arena-formerly known as GM Place's old roof)

    The roof of Mountain Equipment Co-op on Broadway is not bad either

    And a friend of mine told me that Portside Park at Crab Park (East Van) isn't bad either. You're at sea level but you can see downtown and its landmarks (Canada Place, Harbour Centre), Stanley Park, the Lions Gate bridge and the North Shore mountains.

    You can't go wrong with Lonsdale Quay in North Van either.

    And of course, the skyride going up to Grouse Mountain!

    There are so many, the best is just to carry a camera with you all the time

    If you have a car, you can also go to Cypress mountain. Half way to the top, you'll find a view point which is quite awesome, but you won't have the mountains.

    Otherwise, a few blocks west of Alma on 8th (towards UBC), you have a good view of downtown and mountains.
