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.
