How much do you love a good road trip? I love them so much!

Exploring new places, sightseeing, long talks, comfortable silence, impromptu photo ops, road trip tunes.

Everything about a road trip makes me happy. (Well, almost everything – I don’t like air conditioning, and sometimes I lose that battle). Even getting lost can be fun!

We are so blessed in British Columbia to have so many great places to explore and enjoy.

Below are a few of my favourite B.C. road trips.

Coast Mountain Circle Route

Clockwise or counterclockwise, and from wherever you start, the Coast Mountain Circle Route is a scenic, 600-kilometre loop – with a few thrilling, harrowingly narrow cliff-side bits – connecting Vancouver, Whistler, Pemberton, Lillooet, Lytton and Hope.

Kootenay Rockies

Even if my little brother and his wife didn’t live in Nelson, I would still be in love with this beautiful region of the province! Rugged, wild and pristine – but still many spots for good food and drink. Honestly, what else could you ask for?

Okanagan Valley

Sunny days, breathtaking scenery, award-winning food, and some of the world’s best wine. Need I say more? Didn’t think so.

Sunshine Coast

I fell madly in love with the Sunshine Coast the first time I took the short trip over on the ferry. You absolutely have to experience this part of B.C.!
