It is time for good vibes and blue skies. Do you dream that summer would last forever? If so, you'll want to make the most of the warmer months. It is time to start planning what to do so you don't waste a single moment of sunglasses and flip flop weather. To save you wasting your time trying to search on the internet on what to do, we've got you covered. Here are some road trips that you've got to add to your B.C. summer to-do list.

From June to August is prime time to escape the heat and go for a swim. Instead of a regular swimming pool, you can head to the Myra Falls, which has a secret swimming hole.

Another top choice is Tribune Bay. Here you'll find a long stretch of soft sand and turquoise water that will make you feel like you are in Hawaii.

If you prefer something more active, Harrison Water Park is not to miss. Here you can race your friends on the inflatable water park that is filled with obstacles that are a blast to conquer.

For a dreamy weekend getaway, you could always escape the city and go glamping. Ditch worrying about pitching a tent, and instead enjoy sleeping surrounded by nature with a plush bed. What will you put at the top of your summer bucket list?
