One of the best places ever! Eagle capital and recreation capital of the world! You only have to drive an hour south to shop in vancouver or a half hour north to snow board in whistler. But you get to come back to squamish where everything is great! Climb the Chief, wind surf, see a mixture of city and beautiful wild life. And p.s. Those who say Squamish is just a pitstop between Vancouver and Whistler are actually just ignorant people who drive past the town on the high way. You cant tell how big a town is when you drive around it!
