View from the Viaduct
If you’re looking for creative inspiration and a spectacular view of Vancouver, grab your camera or quick-sketch pens and walk up onto the Dunsmuir viaduct. The viaducts are slated for destruction – the city plans to replace them with an at-grade street network – so now is the time to go.
Turn 360° on the Dunsmuir viaduct and you’ll get a less commonly-captured perspective of so many Vancouver attractions:
1. The Lions
2. The W Sign from the old Woodwards
3. W + Harbour Tower
4. BC Place
5. Science World
6. Martin Creed’s ‘Everything Is Going To Be Alright’ neon sculpture on the Wing Sang Building under Grouse Mountain
7. Once you make it to the end of the viaduct, head a couple blocks up to Beatty Street, turn left and you’ll find the Beatty Street Mural.
