Hello there, fellow travellers and adventurers! Hold on tight, because we’re giving you the warmest welcome to our new travel center—a place where the past and future come together in the most amazing way. Let’s take you on a journey that connects yesterday with the dreams of tomorrow. So, buckle up and join us as we set off on this exciting adventure!
Let’s begin by delving into the roots of Blaine. Long before this town bore its name, the land was home to the Semiahmoo, a tribe with deep connections to the region. In 1858, as the Fraser River Gold Rush swept through, two Semiahmoo communities emerged, each with stories to tell. These threads were woven together, giving birth to Blaine—a town with a rich tapestry of canneries. Among them, the Alaska Packers Association stood proud, leaving a legacy that still whispers in the breezes of the iconic Semiahmoo Resort. And of course, there’s the remarkable Peace Arch, a monumental gateway that connects us not only to our captivating history but also to the neighboring beauty of Canada.
Now, let’s imagine soaring beyond the pages of history books to a lesser-known tale—the tale of the Blaine Municipal Airfield. Our inspiration for this travel center took flight from the iconic barrel-shaped roof of that old airport hangar. Picture this: a roof that sheltered dreams taking off, propellers humming with excitement. These unique cool roofs ignited the spark for the creation of something truly extraordinary.
Imagine an old airport hangar, a spot full of stories about flying and the brave folks who soared high above. Our inspiration? That cool barrel-shaped roof you might have seen at airports. We’re taking that inspiration and giving it a modern twist to create the heart of our travel center.
Think of these cool roofs like a time machine that connects old and new. They’re not just fancy buildings; they also make room for a second floor, like a secret hideaway. When you walk into our travel center, you’ll notice these unique curved roofs—they’re more than just eye candy. They’re a sign that we’re all about making your visit special.
But wait, there’s more! Our travel center sits on the land where the Blaine Municipal Airfield used to be. The shapes of our roofs are like a salute to the airplane hangars of the past. These roofs aren’t just there for looks; they’re a way for us to say, “Hey, we remember the history of this place!” You can practically hear the hum of propellers and feel the energy of the early aviators as you step in.
This isn’t your average travel center—it’s an experience. The cool roofs are not just decoration; they’re part of the vibe that makes our stop buzz with life.
It’s not just about how it looks; it’s about the stories we’re sharing. Our travel center is more than just a cool design; they’re a symbol of daring dreams and moving forward.
