Is this a good place to settle down in?

by Rusirius1

I'm looking for a nice Beautiful place in BC, not too far from Vancouver, that is not too crowded. Does Chilliwack have recreational oppurtunities like hiking in the nearby foothills of the Mountains? Is the air clean and fresh? Is Lake Chilliwack a popular place for swimming and Boating? Is the water clean? Does the town have adequate shopping facilities - like Health Food Stores for a granola head like myself? JC penneys, Sears, Bon Marche, etc? Good Farmer's Markets with Organic Produce? Barnes and Noble Bookstore or something like it? Does Canada have Target?
I hate to play 20 questions but I've never been to the "Great White North". I'm looking forward to a trip in the near future. Budget travel, of course. Any comments or suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

Chilliwack has all the outdoor activities you refer to (mountains-hiking-Lakes)
The 2 most popular lake sites are, the rugged wilderness of Lake Chilliwack (35min. from central Chilliwack) and the more, urban, child-friendly Cultus Lake (15. min)As well HArrison Lake in Aggasizz (25 min) has hiking and boating. The water, according to the local government is the best in North America etc etc. ( I drink from the tap, as many others do) Depending on who you talk to the air quality in Chilliwack is either ok or not good. I have no problem with the air, having grown up iin an industrial town, however this is an agricultural area, and in the spring time the air gets a bit roasty. If you have asthma or some other breathing condition then this might be a real consideration. Shopping is quite good (2 good size malls walmart-zellers-canadian tire- Sears-coles book stores, etc. etc.) As well there is a small downtown business center in the old part of the city. Chilliwack like other rural areas does lack some good cultural experiences: music, dining, art, but Surrey (40 min.) and Vancouver (60 min. no traffic) can make up for this. The bottom line I think is that Chilliwack is a great place to live for most, particularly if you know that Vancouver's ( 1hour away) real estate is anywhere form 50% to 75% higher than here. If you have any questions you can email me (Ron) at I'm a school teacher not a real estate agent so you are safe!

Chilliwack's probably one of the last places on my list in and around Vancouver when I think of a city where "granola heads" would want to base themselves out of. Chilliwack has malls and strip malls... and there are no Barnes and Nobles, JC Penney's, Bon Marches or Targets anywhere in Canada.

The unfortunate reality with Chilliwack is that all the smog from Greater Vancouver is blown eastward and gets blocked by the mountains... so it just collects over Chilliwack. The air quality in Chilliwack is probably some of the worst in the Greater Vancouver region.

I'd actually consider looking into Squamish instead if you're wanting to be within close proximity to Vancouver without actually having to live in a city.It's north of Vancouver by about an hour's drive, located at the northern end of a fjord, at the base of the Coast Mountains...

... and the air is clean.

Squamish is nice but avoid drinking the water. As well it functions as the bedroom community for the noveau rich of Whistler, so housing cost is ridiculous. Air is cleaner than Chilliwack.

You could take the ferry from Vancouver to Nanaimo and then drive to Parksville (closer) or Tofino (a bit further). Tofino in particular is known for it's amazing natural landscape, and it's full of hippies. No good shopping though.

chiliwack is ugly not a vacation spot .a vacation spot is victoria . not that far... but it depends on what you consider far . albertsford is a residential area that appears more liveable but it seems your looking for a vacation spot . you can always find cheap accomadations if you look around and are willing to go alittle far from the exact detination..... Whistler area is a great place stay off... Stayoff the beaten path from whistler (surrounding area ) and you won't be sorry!!!!!!!

chilliwack is not the spot to see the beauty of B.C. head to the sunshine coast or up toward Whistler.. If you think a 5 hour drive is not to far go to the Kootneys and really get the fresh air Granol Head experience... B.C. is all beautiful but the "wack" is a bedroom community for Vancouver despite the distance and what the Mayor says.. ha ha... the shopping is not good sears and walmart... no good book store.. well except the Book Man downtown which is a great used book store..
If you want Desert go to Osoyoos... might be pricey in the summer... the wine areas are great in the Okanagan...
As I was born and raised in Chilliwack I think the corn is the only redeeming factor there.. the lakes are nice but Cultus is crowded in the summer.. no real hotels near there you can rent a cabin I Cultus lake I mean...
If you go to Nelson or Trail or Rossland there is great hiking and biking and cross country and down hill skiing depending on the time of year... Google them all they are at least 6-7 hours from Vancouver...

Travel Tips for Chilliwack

Tons of farmland, cradled by the mountains

by duanestorey

Chilliwack is really a farming community, despite several new industries that have popped up there recently. Many people still leave their doors unlocked at night, and go for evening strolls downtown to various coffee-shops. I like most of my memories in Chilliwack!

"Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve"

Because coastal herons don't migrate they depend on wetland habitat in the (ever increasingly developed) Lower Mainland and on Vancouver Island for their survival. Considered at risk, they require conservation efforts to ensure survival of its population. On the south western portion of the reserve is one of the largest heron nesting colonies in the area.

The reserve is situated south of Highway 1 on the boundary of Abbotsford/Chilliwack, beside Vedder River. For directions go to or email

"The sixth highest falls in Canada"

On Highway # 1, 16 km east of Chilliwack. Traveling east take exit #135, heading west take exit # 138.

The sixth highest falls in Canada drops 122 metres down from the side of almost 7,000 foot Mount Cheam flowing into Bridal Creek. The creek leads to Cheam Lake Regional Park. The Bridal Falls Park is located at the site of the ancient aboriginal village of Popkum which dates back to the 1700s. The trail from the parking lot is an easy twenty minute walk to the base of the falls.

Caution: The falls are prone to freezing during colder winters, which results in the formation of an unstable wall of ice. During these periods, the base of the falls is an extremely hazardous area, but you can still get a good view without being directly under the falls.
