Our Canada: Tsawwassen, B.C.

By: Jenn Robinson

I live in Tsawwassen, B.C., and I absolutely love it here. We are a small community due to our geographic limitations (we're surrounded by farmland and ocean on all sides). This limits our growth and gives us a friendly, small-town feel. A honked car horn here is more often somebody waving "hi" than a traffic frustration.
 
The bigger draw for me, however, is our beach in Boundary Bay. It's perfect for swimming, kayaking, SUPing (Stand Up Paddling) and low tide walks. Plus. the shallow bay is known for clean, clear and warm water in the summer. Bliss! 
 
 Boundary Bay Regional Park, which is a wildlife reserve and an internationally recognized "Important Bird Area" serves as a stopover to thousands of migratory birds on the Pacific Flyway. It's a great spot for a walk, a bike or some serious bird watching. So a good day in Tsawwassen would include a walk through the reserve, a stop for a snack at the Centennial Beach Concession, and a swim, kayak or SUP paddle in Boundary Bay.
 
To round it out, consider dining at Illuminate Restorante, an unexpected fine dining experience in little old Tsawwassen, where Chef Roland Smith (former Executive Chef at Umberto Menghi's il Giardino) serves up some of the best Tuscan dishes to be found in the Lower Mainland.

Spectacular natural scenery makes Tsawwassen seem like the place to be. Nominate your community and tell us all about your favourite hometown for your chance to be featured on our site!
