Attractions in British Columbia include beaches, museums, bungee jumping, wineries – and everything in between.
Outdoor adventurers can go ziplining in Whistler or cross the swaying Capilano Suspension Bridge. Foodies can try Aboriginal cuisine at the Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre, sip Okanagan Chardonnay at a winery, or pick up artisan cheeses at Granville Island Public Market. Examine the gold rush at Barkerville, or get the kids giggling at the Victoria Bug Zoo.
It doesn’t end there: trains, butterflies, old-growth trees, cowboys, hot springs, enchanted forests and rattlesnakes are a sampling of more things to explore.
Solo travellers, couples, families and groups can all find story-worthy attractions in BC at any time of year.
