We all know BC is a special place. There are so many thing we can do here that anywhere else would be unheard of. We can ski and swim on the same day, hike a new trail every week, and enjoy the convenience of the city while never being that far off from nature.

With so much to do, it's sometimes hard to keep track. So, having left out the more obvious, here's a list of all the great ways to experience beautiful BC:

1. Whale watching
