The history of the Vancouver, Coast & Mountains region is full of colourful characters.

It’s left a legacy of eclectic historic and heritage sites, from Aboriginal culture and Gold Rush pioneers to cannery workers and the famed explorer Simon Fraser.

Visit Vancouver’s historic Chinatown and Gastown districts. Tour Fort Langley, the “Birthplace of British Columbia.” Or explore Aboriginal culture and history at the Museum of Anthropology or Whistler’s Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre.

Walk through the Shakespeare-inspired Othello Tunnels near Hope. In Mission, contemplate a working Benedictine monastery. Or descend underground into an old mining tunnel at the Britannia Mine Museum near Squamish.
