Vancouver Lookout offers panoramic views of the lively downtown, a lush park, and the harbor. The famous astronaut Neil Armstrong opened the lookout in 1977 (a cement block with his footprint stood on the viewing deck until renovations, when it disappeared). Hop on a glass elevator that will take you 168 m (553 ft) above street level. You can opt for a self-guided tour, or ask the friendly staff to point out some of the city's attractions to you. If you're hungry, consider dining at the revolving restaurant on the top.

Vancouver Lookout Reviews
You cant beat the view from the top! I love going on days with a bit of high cloud - you've still got great visibility, but a bit of fun texture in the sky. Make sure to give yourself enough time to enjoy the full 360°!
Very nice view and you can't find other place to explore downtown Vancouver and the Burrard Inlet at the same time. If you want, with physically comfortable to do, try Urban Grind this year. Last chance next Tuesday (March 26, 2019). It is anticipated packed of participants. Pay $5 for the activity, then get $5 coupon for food court items and a cup of beer at outlook level. Check the activity on website for details.
