British Columbia is rich with interesting stops, from the art galleries and gardens of Vancouver and Victoria to the Gold Rush Trail communities of the Cariboo.

Barkerville Historic Town | Rob Lloyd

Barkerville shares gold-rush history through a recreated boomtown of the 1800s. At Granville Island in Vancouver, you can pop into studios and watch artisans create everything from handmade paper to kinetic sculptures and blown glass. In Victoria, stop in at Emily Carr House to see the birthplace of, arguably, BC’s best-known homegrown artist, which has been restored to look as it did during her childhood.

Further afield at Skidegate on Haida Gwaii, the Haida Heritage Centre at Kay Llnagaay houses the stunning collections of the Haida Gwaii museum, as well an interpretive centre, theatre, and art school all dedicated to preserving and celebrating Haida culture.
