150 great places to visit in B.C.

Perched above Kamloops Lake, Tobiano golf course (No. 44 on our list) has the views and the challenges to thrill golfers. Very tough to score well here on a windy day. Show caption
Much shorter than the famous Black Tusk hike, Joffre Lakes (No. 126 on our list) offers hikers a huge payoff. Show caption
Take in the beauty and explore Kalamalka Lake Provincial Park (No. 58 on our list) by boat, foot, or bike. Show caption

Sometimes, we forget what's in our own backyard. Or we don't even know it's there.

To coincide with Canada's 150th birthday back in 2017, we compiled a list of 150 fun-beautiful-wonderful things that may be just a few minutes down the road, or as part of an epic road trip across B.C. And now that places around the province are slowly opening back up during the COVID-19 pandemic, we've revised the list to include – with a few exceptions – spots that have already reopened or that will reopen soon.

Enjoy. And please take care to follow COVID-19 guidelines everywhere you go to help keep everyone safe and to ensure B.C. continues to recover.
