In addition to all the great things others have said, we would like to add that this is the perfect location for visiting everything between Squamish and Queen Elizabeth Park. It is comfortable, quiet, out of the traffic yet close to nearly all the high points of the area. We enjoyed the Sea to Sky Highway, Bowen Island, Lynn Canyon Park, Cypress Park, Stanley Park & Aquarium, Granville Island, Van Dusen Gardens, UBC Museum of Anthropology and more. We also enjoyed the harbor side ambiance of Horseshoe Bay itself. Starbucks, Olive & Anchor, Troll's and the harbor park itself offer beautiful views in a very relaxed environment. We spent the last moments of our vacation lingering over the view of the harbor, the mountains and, of course, the ferries.
