The Answer “Pemberton”
After spending just a little over two weeks commuting from Pemberton to Whistler I thought it would only be right to support Pemberton and write a blog….
Pemberton and the Aura
Pemberton is an absolutely charming small town of just over 2400 residents – and hundreds of acres of farm land. I tweeted about the beauty a few weeks back; I was just driving back to Pemberton after a very long day at work…. and I felt compelled to pull over and take pictures, with my I-Phone of all things.. Instant tweets… I can honestly say that Pemberton is highly diverse, quaint, and really quite picturesque….. Mt. Currie and the surrounding peaks are breath-taking, yes Pemberton is special.
Things I have learned
The First Nations Band of Mt. Currie have a very historical imprint on the entire territory

Pemberton was a supply stop “Port Pemberton” in 1859 a place where Gold Seekers would stop for supplies.
The first passenger train was in 1914
The Scenic Coast Mountain Tour – rounds through Pemberton across the Duffy Lake Road to the Interior (a vehicle tour)
Pemberton is the fastest growing community – 2005 statistics

The summer is very special in Pemberton – if not for the grassy wheat fields and the beautiful scenery – the strawberry picking is a delicious way to have a family outing….
North Arm Farms is a family run business with its own bake shop, and petting farm; bring the children as most places in Pemberton are children oriented. In the Autumn pumpkins are scattered throughout the fields and a horse-drawn carriage takes you on a very scenic tour; last time I did this adventure my daughter Tashi and I saw a black bear….. It was simply thrilling.

There are wineries in Pemberton, two golf courses, a barn dance fund-raising event, and many fabulous restaurants… If you’re a hiker, mountain biker, Dragon Boat rower, or photographer… Pemberton is for you. See how this blog could go on forever – I promise I will write more about Pemberton… as there is so much to share about this gorgeous, entrepreneurial, farm town… Check it out yourself – you’ll be happy you did.
