A highway winds along a mountain side between a mountain and a river. The sun is setting behind the mountains. One car is driving the quiet highway.

Journey to a Coastal Town

The last year and a half has left us all with a pent-up wanderlust; we long to explore again, to reconnect with the special people in our lives, and to rekindle our sense of wonder. And if salt water is the perfect salve for most things—whether it comes from tears, sweat, or the sea—let the cool Pacific Ocean wash your worries away when you visit one of BC’s coastal cities or seaside towns this fall on a road trip.

Choose an adventure that speaks to you: A peaceful hideaway, a sporty activity, cheerful libations, or the simplicity of being present in nature. You’ll surely satisfy your appetite to explore, whether you escape for the weekend or embark upon the road trip of a lifetime.
