Summer is finally really honestly here in BC and we can't wait to get out there. We have our swimsuits and our floaties at the ready for a summer adventure, but sometimes booking a local hotel room can be as expensive as a trip to Mexico.\nRather than scrap the idea of a mini-getaway, why not find one that fits your budget? We've found the most fun and affordable places to vacation and catch up with your best friends this summer.\nIf you have a few friends that you've been meaning to spend time with, then you should organize a weekend getaway together ASAP. Everyone is in a good mood in the summer and I promise they'll be more likely to say 'yes' to an adventure with you now than they will in the grey, dreary days of November.\nHere are 7 cheap summer getaways girls-only getaways you should definitely book this in BC:\nGirls Getaway To Gibsons\nGlamping Hub\nLive the cottage life with your besties on Gibsons for an island getaway this summer! This cute cottage is super cheap at just $42 per night when you split it with three of your friends. That adorable patio is literally made for sipping rosé on a summer afternoon.\nNamastay At Bowen Island\nView this post on Instagram Lorena and Gloria of @arrowyoga join us next month for 3 nights of asana, pranayama, meditation, mantra, cleansing techniques, mindful eating, sound healing, conscious movement, ritual & ceremony, nature and community.

You can stay in a shiny Airstream of your own!

This is the first full summer that you can stay Pangea Pod and you have to go with your girls this summer to be right in the heart of Whistler Village for next to nothing. Pods are really cheap, often just $50 per night, and it's a total blast to stay here in this upscale remix of a hostel inspired by capsule hotels in Japan.\nStay In An Adorable Riverside Cabin\nView this post on Instagram Sassy door & shorts coordination 🔸🌲👌🏽 A post shared by Paisley Smith (@thepaiz) on Aug 1, 2018 at 12:47am PDT\nThese tiny cabins are not far from Vancouver and they're simply adorable!
