Summer vacations in British Columbia (BC) are among the most cherished of Albertan traditions, and it’s easy to see why. The drive through the mountains is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful in the world. There are no borders to cross and the diversity of climate and landscape across the province means that there are a million different things to do. It can be hard to narrow down what to do in such a huge and exciting province, but we’ve got some ideas to help you start your own BC traditions today!
Located in southern California, San Diego is surrounded by sandy beaches and full of fun family attractions for you to discover. It’s well-located, too - it’s just a short two-hour drive up the coast to Disneyland and Los Angeles, and an hour south to Mexico. It’s the perfect vacation destination for families looking for a sunny escape!
Your family may already be quite familiar with hiking many of my family’s favorite hiking trails. Add bikes in, though, and the trip takes on a whole different feeling. Hills suddenly become a lot more fun when you’re screaming down them and outings become a lot shorter, leaving more room for ice cream and playgrounds you find along the way. We discovered early on that my son could ride a lot farther than he could hike, and that our pedal-powered adventures would take us to locations rarely reached by a young child on foot. Many of our favorite trails are so much fun on bikes that we’ve stopped hiking them altogether, and we now look for ways to combine trails to lengthen our rides.
Spring is here! And with this wonderful season comes longer days, warmer weather and the beginning of the season for many area farmers’ markets. These markets provide shoppers with easy access to fresh seasonal produce, delicious baked goods, locally-made craft items and more.
