Top places to visit in BC before summer ends
1. Otter Co-op Outdoor Experience, Langley
If you reserve your tickets for Otter Co-op Outdoor Experience, you’ll give your young kids the thrill of a major waterpark at a fraction of the price.
Float along the lazy river, bob the waves, or race down the water slides.

3. Peak 2 Peak Gondola, Whistler Blackcomb
The record breaking Peak 2 Peak Gondola at Whistler Blackcomb provides a bird’s-eye view 436 metres above the valley floor.
We had a mini dance party as we enjoyed the alpine views and rode the gondola back and forth.

It’s the perfect time to visit the Vancouver Aquarium since it reopened recently after an extended closure to the public.
See the revamped exhibits and learn about the extensive rehabilitation efforts they’re involved in. Don’t forget the 4D theatre for those brave enough!

7. Kangaroo Creek Farm Kelowna
I can’t recommend Kangaroo Creek Farm enough? Where else can you relax with Roos, hang with sugar gliders, chat with Macaws, and race tortoises?
The farm is much improved from the last time I visited several years ago with a rolling property and fantastic displays. There’s push cars and an old fire truck to play on, a concession, and tons of animals to interact with.
We chose to visit on probably the hottest day of the heat dome (brilliant, I know) but managed to still spend hours there. As a bonus, kids 4 & under are free so it makes visiting with little ones more affordable.
Did you know that kangaroos drool on their forearms to keep cool in the heat? I do now! What’s the strangest animal fact you’ve ever learned?
