Well I live in Kelowna, and its a really popular tourist site. Its right on the okanagan lake with lots of beaches, orchards… tons of hiking trails. And there’s always the underground uh… herbal stuff.
I would go to the market and eat some yummy chowder, and then I’d go visit Marc Emery’s shop and smoke a fattie.
Ha thanx for your replies, but its a family thing, don’t think smoking up will be part of the itinary.. i will look up kelowna, thanks.
Stay in Victoria. There is lots to do there, including historic buildings, museums, tours. Also good restaurants and sightseeing. Some of the most beautiful landscape I’ve ever seen, and I live in Alaska! In Victoria, there is ocean, mountains and everything in between. You can go whale watching or spend the day in Butchart, one of the most famous and most beautiful botanical gardens in the world. Enjoy your trip!
Go to Victoria. It’s clean, it’s beautiful, the people are friendly and helpful when it comes to you finding your way. Make sure when you enter Canada you hit the duty free shops, because they have anything you can want for way cheaper, I bought two cartons of Marlboro Smooths for $25 each.
I agree with some of the above replies to your query such as Victoria, our captial city, it is beautiful. Much to see and do there, the Royal Museum is incredible and a day or two is easily spent exploring it! The cafes are wonderful and there is unique shops, quaint streets and the inner harbour is a fantastic place to sit and watch the boat activity. The west coast of Vancouver Island is awe inspiring, with the crashing of the ocean waves, numerous beaches and the hiking trails. Tofino area is the best surfing in the world. Kelowna is nice too, so is the huge and incredible Shuswap lake where you can rent boats (and house boats too), tons of water sports and absolutely gorgeous area.
The Okanagan has some of the best wineries, fresh fruit and the southern Thompson Okanagan region boasts the only arid desert in Canada. The gold rush trail, where you can explore small gold mining towns rich with BC history, a fun place for kids as there are many things to do. The Rocky mountains and Fraser canyon, are both worth exploring. BC has many powerful rivers that are perfect for adventures such as white water rafting. The Kootneys, another fabulous area offers more outdoor activities, great fruit, wineries and breathtaking scenery.
Even with a problems of late, Vancouver is pretty great, we are consistently ranked one of the most liveable/beautiful cities in the world, we have so many things to do and see here we have a huge selection of the very best restaurants that offer a huge variety for just about every palate. Beautiful beaches, nature walks, Capilano Supension bridge, Stanley park, Grouse mountain, with a gondola ride up and the best view of Vancouver by day or night.
I guess really to answer your question is that BC is one of the most amazing places on Earth and really needs a bit more time than just one day! :o) Sorry this probably isn’t too helpful but there are lots of options for you and your family, the list I have provided barely scratches the surface! Wherever you end up, I am sure will be enjoyable and make you want to come back to see more!
Enjoy your vacation!
It’s a hard choice between Victoria, Vancouver, and Whistler/Pemberton.
So I’m going to go way off the lower B.C. mainland and suggest Nelson, BC. It’s highly isolated but it’s one of the most beautiful places in North America.
Definitely Stanley Park and Gastown, the historic district.
