Vacation with Family in British Columbia

British Columbia offers a wide variety of fun filled activities for the whole family whether it’s a trip to the Vancouver Aquarium or a setting up camp in the Okanagan. We have outlined a few excellent destinations for the whole family to enjoy.

If you are a local Vancouverite or visiting and planning on heading into the vast and beautiful province of British Columbia car rental companies have the perfect vehicle for your family vacation. Consider renting an SUV or an 8 & 12 Passenger Van to ensure the whole family and all your belongings fit comfortably for the haul. We know how it can be on those long road trip drives and how any discomfort in the back translates into a whole lot of discomfort up front.

Okanagan Valley

Located centrally in the province of British Columbia, the Okanagan Valley is a very arid region that offers many different resorts from large brands to small quaint family owned spots, although camping at the many sites in the very favorable summer climate is a great experience. The region is dotted with tons of lakes where you can enjoy boating, watersports, swimming and splashing at the shore. Many towns and cities have central areas with rope swings, slides and diving boards to give the little kiddies some thrills. Go-kart tracks, waterslides, mountain biking, horseback riding, and theme parks are also scattered about the region. Of course there are activities for the parents too from wine tours, golfing, and most importantly relaxing lakeside. Some of the spots to visit in the region: Penticton, Osoyoos, Kelowna and Vernon.

Greater Vancouver

The most densely populated area of British Columbia, Vancouver is the main city that offers tons of fun for both you and you kids. The main attractions are the renowned Vancouver Aquarium, Splashdown Park Waterside, Science World, Fort Langley and the outdoor swimming pool at Kitsilano Beach. Like all cities there are plenty of parks, festivals and children focused activities constantly happening throughout the summer. The great part about Vancouver is the close proximity to the ocean and mountains so you are able to walk to the beach to get wet or make the quick trip out of the city and hike some trails of visit some lakes. Of course the ‘big’ city offers lots of entertainment and world-class dinning for the parents… but if you can’t shake the kids you’ll find numerous restaurants suitable for the whole family.

Whistler

Whistler is a top destination year round. When the snow melts and the skis are packed away for another season many different activities just start to get going. The village is always bustling with activities for everyone, especially the kids. At the bas of the gondolas that will often be play areas and more radical trapeze setups to do. Downhill mountain biking pretty much takes over and is a thrill for the whole family. You can take a casual ride down or just hike around after catching the lift up then watch the pros dazzle any time of the day but especially when they host the Crankworks competition. The valley is lined with trails that you can casually bike of rollerblade and you will come across countless lakes, parks and picnic areas to settle down and enjoy the spectacular scenery. All the resorts are family friendly and offer swimming pools and play area for the kids to get their kicks.
