British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast is a great place to visit, especially in the summer. You can go skiing, hiking, for bike rides, head out on the lake and more! There’s some pretty breathtaking scenery and friendly coastal villages in this area, which you can only bring your car to if you take BC Ferries because it’s actually quite remote. There are rocky, forested beaches and small, funky communities with a variety of bars, cafes, restaurants, and spas – all within about a 40 minute ferry ride from Vancouver. Pride is celebrated there for the entire month of June so it also makes for a nice gay-friendly destination away from the big city.
In the video above you can see what we did on a day of our visit there including staying at the Aerie at Pointhouse Suites, going to the Sechelt Farmers’ & Artisans’ Market, having lunch at The Basted Baker, visiting the Doris Crowston Gallery, and having dinner at Smitty’s Oyster House.
Thanks to Sunshine Coast Tourism for helping us to coordinate our trip and here are some of the photos from there that I’ve shared on Instagram:
We did another video from our guest house where we had a debate about tipping. So check that out too and leave a comment letting me know what you think!
