Plan your Next Staycation in BC

It’s no surprise everyone is getting a little stir crazy. Being locked in our homes for weeks with no definitive date of the crisis being over would put anyone over the edge. If you’re like me than you need a vacation, quick! But even after the crisis ends travelers should still stay wary. Just because the lockdown is lifted doesn’t mean the danger has passed, especially in other parts of the world.

What should you do once social distancing is lifted? Consider a staycation in BC and support local tourism. After all they don’t call it Beautiful BC for nothing!

BC’s tourism economy has been hard hit and needs your support. Consider making your next vacation a staycation. Visit some of BC’s amazing beautiful summer destinations.

Tofino and the Pacific Rim

No need to leave BC for your next beach vacation! Vancouver Island has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and the surfing community to prove it! Head over to Tofino to enjoy one of best summer destinations in BC or the lesser known but equally amazing Ucluelet.

While you’re at it why not tour the entire Island! There are so many amazing towns scattered throughout the island like Sooke, Parksville, and Port Hardy.

Whistler and the Sea to Sky

This might be news to some, but Whistler isn’t just a ski town. It offers a plethora of family-fun activities. Summers in Whistler are some of the most amazing you’ll have. Whistler has four lakes and the best nightlife in BC! But why only visit Whistler?

Spend some time exploring Squamish and Pemberton! Squamish isn’t called the outdoor capital of Canada for nothing! Go to Pemberton and have your jaw drop looking at the Currie. Even better do it from a sky with a paragliding tour!

Kelowna and the Okanagan Valley

Lake life? Yes please! You can’t experience a staycation in BC without visiting the Okanagan. Use this summer to boat, paddle, swim, and float in the amazing lakes of the Okanagan. While you’re at it drink some of the best wine you’ve ever had at one of the many Kelowna wineries!

I suggest checking out the entire Okanagan Valley! In the south you’ll find Osoyoos, Penticton, and Oliver. While in central Okangan you’ll enjoy your time at Kelowna, Summerland, and Peachland. Capped off with the northern Okanagan towns of Lake Country and Vernon.

The Kootenays and Rockies

If you want a real adventure pack up the vehicle and make the drive to the Kootenays. You won’t regret it! The mountains in the Rockies will blow your mind. The small town life spread throughout the Kootenays is so peaceful and fantastic! Check out the towns of Rossland, Nelson, Kimberley, and Fernie!

While you’re out that way don’t forget to head to our Albertan neighbours. Little has to be said about the beauty of Banff, Canmore, Lake Louise, and Jasper.

Harrison Hot Springs and the Fraser Valley

If you’re out of Greater Vancouver the best staycation is visiting your backyard! The Fraser Valley is full of travel destinations that are shamefully underrated. Harrison Hot Springs has countless fantastic things to do. Plus with it’s neighbouring community of Cultus Lake the Fraser Valley is full of great “lake life” trips.

While visiting the Fraser Valley take a day and visit the quaint community of Fort Langley. Fort Langley is a charming town full of great places to eat and antique shopping.
