Get ready to do a double-take. Just a short drive from Vancouver, there are tons of unusual attractions that seem straight from a fairytale. So it is time to plan a road trip, as we've gathered up the best of B.C's quirky landmarks that you didn't know you could find.

Was Tinkerbell always one of your favourite Disney character? If so, you need to hike to the rainbow coloured fairy village within Redwood Park.

It is a whimsical free attraction, perfect for an afternoon adventure, with hundreds of tiny homes nestled in the forest.

Or instead of tiny mythical creatures, you could seek a colossal one — if you dare. Thankfully the giant within Beacon Hill Park is friendly.

You can walk right up to the statue to get an up-close look as peaceful slumbers within the garden. It makes for a fun spot to take a quick selfie.

Meanwhile, did you know The Enchanted Forest has more than a supersized treehouse? Here you can enter classic storybook tales and see Goldilocks And The Three Bears and Snow White's cabins.

Walking around, you'll feel like a kid as you marvel at the surreal sights like a dragon, castle, and even a cow jumping over the moon.
