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.

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 Centre.
