British Columbia lies between the Pacific Ocean and the Rocky Mountains, giving nature lovers the best of both worlds. The province enjoys plenty of sun and warm weather, especially in the Sunshine Coast and its marine provincial parks. Okanagan Valley and the Glacier National Park are great for hiking and biking adventures. Planning a winter vacation? Whistler, Fernie, and Revelstoke are just a few of the best ski resort towns in British Columbia.

If you’re looking for a city break, British Columbia offers ample choices. Victoria is the family-friendly capital city of the province, offering pretty gardens, historic sites, and scenic waterfronts. The coastal city of Vancouver offers similar sights of the Pacific Ocean, along with notable museums like the Maritime Museum, Vancouver Art Gallery, and HR MacMillan Space Center.
