Squamish listed as a top 2023 travel destination

Of the 50 places to go, Squamish is the only destination listed from Canada.
Squamish ranks 47 out of 50 destinations and describes it as brimming “with natural beauty.”

Squamish once again has made a list of top destinations to visit in 2023, but this time it is the only destination in Canada.

Some may recall that in 2015, Squamish made The New York Times list of top places to visit. In The Times, we ranked 32 out of 52 and were one of two Canadian destinations, along with Quebec City, which came in at 40.

This time, the list was compiled by Travel Lemming, an online travel guide

Squamish ranks 47 out of 50 destinations and is described as brimming “with natural beauty.”

“Take in picturesque views on the Sea to Sky Gondola, and hike to the summit of the Stawamus Chief monolith. Trails also lead through lush forests and to alpine lakes, as well as to Shannon Falls, a breathtaking 335-metre cascade,” reads the entry.

“By visiting, you’ll quickly discover why many in Western Canada describe the region as the ‘West Coast, Best Coast.'"

If this all sounds a tad fluffy, then it should be noted that the post says that the best time to visit is between May and September, meaning this travel writer likely didn’t experience the darker and rainier months we’re currently bracing for.

Still, to be listed next to other unique areas like Peru, New Mexico, Portugal and Thailand and to be the only destination in Canada is pretty cool.
