Plan the ultimate West Coast family vacation

The Canadian West Coast offers many activities that your family can enjoy within British Columbia. You can find urban fun when you visit Vancouver, but that's just the beginning. The coast offers numerous opportunities for swimming and watersports. You can also cross the Strait of Georgia to reach Vancouver Island, where you'll experience immaculately well-preserved natural areas with mountains, forests and beaches. Given the variety of natural features along the coast, hiking, cycling and skiing are especially popular if you're not looking to get in the water.
