Squamish and the Howe Sound - BC Canada
Sunshine Coast BC

Welcome to Gibsons:

Leaving Langdale and veering left on Hwy 101 past the tiny communities of Hopkins and Granthams Landings you’ll soon be in the hillside community of Gibsons. Gibson’s main claim to fame was a twenty year association with the CBC series "The Beachcombers". More recently Stephen King's movie "Needful Things" transformed Lower Gibsons into a New England seaside village. Gibsons is now considered a bedroom community of Vancouver by some. The oldest section of town is along the waterfront and here you’ll find many intriguing shops, a seawall to stroll along, and Molly’s Reach Cafe. Until 1991 the cafe was a setting for “The Beachcombers” but is now a real operating cafe with real seafood. Take the time to see one of Canada’s largest Bedford shell collections and the Coast Salish art at the Elphinstone Pioneer Museum.
