We’ve always found British Columbia to be an alluring destination: The beautiful province is conveniently close to Seattle and offers an opportunity to use our passports when we’re feeling the itch. Perhaps most importantly, Canada happens to be home to some of the nicest people on the planet. (And right now, for obvious reasons, many of us feel an urge to migrate north more than ever before.)

Located in the heart of the Cascades, this BC resort has something for everyone.

Just so we’re clear, Whistler-Blackcomb isn’t the only resort you can visit in British Columbia. Manning Park Resort, tucked away in the mountains near the town of Hope, has plenty of outdoor summer fun for the traveler who wishes to visit the beautiful province to the north — and, perhaps, bask in a more low-key setting than Whistler Village provides.
