When it comes to road trips, there is no better person to go with than your significant other. Who else is going to jam out to tunes with you in the car, take endless pictures of you without complaints, and just be all-around great company?\nIf you're looking for new destinations to take spontaneous road trips to over this summer — whether it is a day trip or weekend stay — we've got you covered.\nThese are the spots you need to venture out to this summer, so create those Spotify playlists and get the aux cord ready for the trip.\nSt Mark's Summit // Cypress\nView this post on Instagram I’ve never really been scared of heights. So standing on the edge there didn’t make me nervous at all. What made me extremely nervous was the couple guys in the back telling me how scared they were just looking at me stand there. 🤦♀️ #keepyournervestoyourself A post shared by Kiki (@kikijiangg) on Jun 20, 2018 at 5:35pm PDT\nThis hike is only 45 minutes from Downtown Vancouver and offers one of the best views of the Howe Sound.

When the water evaporates during the hot summer months, it leaves concentrates of these minerals that form the spots visible in the lake. It is certainly worth the trip to see these interesting formations.\nChristina Lake // Kootenay\nView this post on Instagram #PaddlePug #BellaTheSoulPug A post shared by Bella The Soul Pug (@bellathesoulpug) on Jun 3, 2020 at 10:16pm PDT\nView this post on Instagram No fish, excellent views. . . . #kootzcollective #kootzrootz #kootenaylake #lakelife #boating #fishing #gonefishing #onthewater #kootenays #kootenaylife #kootenayliving #goldenhour #sunset #kootrocks #kootenayviews #mountainviews #choosemountains #beautyofbc #laidbacklifestyle A post shared by Kootz Collective (@kootzcollective) on May 29, 2020 at 9:03pm PDT\nWith over 350 metres of sandy beach to relax out on, and the warmest water in all of Canada, Christina Lake is a place you're going to want to visit at least once during the summer months.

A note: the rope swing there has fallen out of use, as it's commonly held to be dangerous. But there are plenty of other ways you can show off your acrobatic skills to your besties in this cool clear water.\nMystic Beach // Vancouver Island\nView this post on Instagram What heaven looks like🐳 A post shared by tarah elizabeth schuett (@tarahschuett) on Jun 4, 2018 at 9:23pm PDT\nMystic Beach features a splashing waterfall, and is perfect for a long walk along the beach with your significant other.

You are allowed to swim in the top lake, but the lower lake is reserved for drinking and therefore must be kept clean.
