It’s amazing what you can discover about a community when you get out of your vehicle and explore its downtown core, rather than breeze right through on the highway. Last summer I had the distinct pleasure of touring around the Cariboo region and one of the places that really caught my attention was Williams Lake. I went mountain biking, I hung out with some Timber Kings, and I discovered cool shops and cafés with my new BFF, Arty the Art Walker.

Did you know that Williams Lake is the Mural Capital of the Cariboo? I met up with Arty at the Cariboo Arts and Culture Centre, where a sidewalk pottery sale was taking place. From there he showed me some of the participating venues for the Williams Lake Art Walk.

It not only shows you some awesome local art (which you can buy) but introduces you to the community through these venues.
