(NC) In celebration of Canada’s sesquicentennial, grab your friends, pack your car and get on the road to experience one of our country’s most beautiful drives. The Sea-to-Sky Highway runs along the coast from Vancouver to Whistler with breathtaking views of ocean and mountains. It is a must-do road trip for every Canadian. Don’t miss these adventurous pit stops along the way:
1. Porteau Cove: Located between the village of Lions Bay and Squamish, this provincial park boasts stunning mountain views and a pretty pebbly beach. It’s the perfect spot for a picnic with friends.
2. Shannon Falls: Cascading down from over 1000 feet above the Sea-to-Sky Highway, Shannon Falls can’t be missed. Stretch your legs from the drive and take a stroll along a trail that leads to the ultimate viewing platform.
3. Sea to Sky Gondola: Feast your eyes on the postcard worthy natural sight of the Howe Sound and its surrounding coast mountains as you ride the Sea to Sky Gondola. The ride is about 10 minutes and gives you access to a long suspension bridge, beautiful viewing platforms and hiking trails.
