Just steps away from unprecedented nature and outdoor adventure; and mere minutes (or a 10 min. walk) to downtown shops, cafés and workspaces.
Cleveland Avenue is the anchor to Squamish’s original established commercial district. Downtown is thriving with multiple remote workspaces, upscale and major grocery stores, a new butcher, and commerce. Get your coffee or specialty tea fix at one of the many cafés, craft beverage producers, world class restaurants, or bakeries – in fact, Squamish is becoming renowned for its burgeoning doughnut scene! And the big city has nothing on our chic boutiques, sport stores, vintage and consignment shops.

It’s where rugged landscapes and stunning vistas come together to create memorable adventures for the young – and young at heart. Access to recreating on both land and sea, or a bit of both if your heart so desires, is unsurpassed whether you are seeking out world-class mountain biking trails, the ocean spray on your face while you kite, or chalky hands from climbing or bouldering some of the most incredible rock on Earth.

The influx of adventure-driven professionals and young families seeking the idyllic live-work-play reality in Squamish is remarkable.
Statistics suggest that up to 60 per cent of the population is under 40. Nothing is more than 10 minutes away by car. The air is clean and the views are stunning.
