DISCOVER SQUAMISH INTRO: We welcome you to discover our Squamish

There’s so much more to Squamish than meets the eye, and what the eye sees is pretty darn impressive.

 If you scratch beneath the first pretty layer of our stunning scenery, an even more interesting community appears.

As the world has come to realize over the last few years, Squamish is a destination in and of itself.

In this summer edition of Discover Squamish, we try to give you an overview of all there is to love about this place whether you have just stopped for a visit, are planning to move here, or just arrived for good.

We cover what to do — from festivals to extreme races, where to eat and drink after a day of summer fun — what it is like to live here; and we introduce you to some of the people who make this place so special.

In our “Single Tracks,” we highlight some of the local quirky and interesting trivia — did you know we once had the only unionized McDonalds in North America?

Want to try one of the many popular outdoor pursuits available here? We’ve got you covered with where to rent the gear you need.

In other stories, we introduce you to the diversity we embrace.

Oh, and if you hadn’t yet noticed, we love our four-legged friends, of all kinds. We highlight some of our favourite pet-friendly spots and animal welfare endeavours.

We hope you enjoy discovering Squamish as much as we loved putting this edition together.
