Home of the 2010 Winter Olympics, the harbourside city of Vancouver is a bustling metropolis overflowing with rich diversity. Catering to any interest through the year, visitors and locals alike can take to the waters and enjoy endless year round water sports, venture to the old-growth forests for a tree-top adventure, or sit back and delight in an evening of entertainment provided by one of the big name acts taking the stage in downtown Vancouver.
Nestled on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, just off the British Columbia coast, sits the picturesque city of Victoria. Reminiscent of Europe's old-world charm, visitors flock to this scenic oasis to take in the host of local fare, outdoor activities and luscious gardens. Honor the British tradition of afternoon tea at one of the numerous teahouses in the city, take to the fairways at the Jack and Steve Nicklaus designed Mountain and Valley golf courses, or enjoy a glass of local wine from the sun-drenched slopes of the Cowichan Valley.
Touted as the number one mountain resort in North America, Whistler is a four-season resort destination with enough outdoor activities to keep every family member busy year ‘round. Whether your adventure calls for an alpine retreat atop Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, or a summertime hike through countless trails, rich with vegetation and sweeping views, the signature PEAK 2 PEAK gondola can take you there. If the host of outdoor activities seems a bit daunting, take a step back and enjoy the laid back ambience of the cafes, boutiques and spas on hand in Whistler Village.
