Squamish has changed — what used to be a gas-up point before hitting the mountains is now a nexus for noshing.
From vegan-focused breakfast baking and boutique coffee beans to a bustling Saturday farmer’s and maker’s market — not to mention some of some of the best cider poured in the province — there is an amazing amount of choice available to the 20,000-plus population to enjoy.
There is always an extra seat at the tasting room table for out-of-towners, too.
Tourism Squamish has launched the Squamish Craft Tasting Trail for hungry and thirsty travellers to use as template.
There are that many places to go visit and more coming on tap in time to sustain everyone from revellers at the inaugural Squamish Constellation Festival(July 26-28 at Hendrickson Park) to hikers who spent the day on the trail network you reach from the Sea to Sky Gondola.
Pick up a craft tasting trail passport from the Squamish Adventure Centre, consult the convenient trail map and plan your trip.
