British Columbia, BC is surely one of the easiest places to review for
family vacation ideas. The longer you spend exploring the alternatives
the more enjoyable options you can find for families of all ages.
Our top family tourist attraction is the Bay of Fundy. Specifically we like the Bay of Fundy National Park. The Bay of Fundy has received special attraction in recent years and is surely a "hot travel spot" having made it to the top of some world travel awards in recent years but is such a large area.
There are pools, playgrounds, miles of trails for both winter and summer past beautiful crisp water waterfalls, and the amazing changing seashore where the massive tides bring in an avalanche of water in and out of the bay each day. With these worlds largest tides comes a mysterious fog which adds to the spectacle. This really seems an enchanted place to spend some time with kids of all ages who can appreciate it.
Now that I have had a chance to tour the region in the summer I believe the real attraction is the natural beauty and the simple outdoors lifestyle. In maritime Canada life is is not too fast any time and this seems to accentuate the tranquility of this place.

The easternmost province of the mainland Canada is rich in history and family adventures. Some of our top attractions for families we have reviewed on our Nova Scotia page and include The Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island for nature and lovers, and Fortress Louisbourg for immersion into an old time pioneer village complete with believable characters from the 18th century.
