Granville Island, Vancouver: A 37-acre industrial wasteland until the late 1970s, Granville Island is today one of Vancouver’s greatest assets. Built upon two giant tidal flats that jut above False Creek, the area was transformed into a creative oasis—home to glassblowers' and potters' studios, farmers markets, theaters, and hotels.
