Moving across a country the size of Canada can be a daunting task, namely because there is just so much space in between where you currently are and where you will likely be moving to. This shouldn’t deter those who are considering making a huge transition such as a cross-country move. Canada is a vast country with a seemingly infinite number of beautiful sights and sounds. One worry that people often run into when considering a significant transition like a cross-country move however, is that they won’t like the new area, and that they won’t feel comfortable in an entirely new territory. This is why it’s incredibly important to scope out your new location, and to take in as much of the area as possible whilst you are visiting, not only to make sure that you become familiar with your new digs, but that you learn more about this great country.
In this blog post, we’ll discuss some of the best places to visit in Western Canada, and hopefully after you’ve been to these places, you will feel comfortable making a move that could change your life for the better:
- Lake Louise – Located in Alberta, Lake Louise is undoubtedly one of the most picturesque sites in all of Canada. The Lake has a vibrant blue colour due to glacial rock flour, which is carried into the lake by melt-water. Aside from the site itself, there are numerous activities one can engage in, from hiking to mountain biking and skiing in the winter. There’s something for the whole family at Lake Louise.
- Vancouver – As the most populous city in Western Canada, Vancouver is a must-see when visiting British Columbia. The city is linguistically and ethnically diverse, and is one of the few cities in North America which has direct access to both the mountains and the ocean. Vancouver’s unique location and mild climate means that there is a host of activities that anyone can get involved with, no matter what time of year you visit.
- Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump – This place is a must visit if you’d like to learn more about Native American culture and its origins. This museum, located near Fort Macloud, Alberta, provides interesting insights into the ways of the past, as you’ll learn about unique Native hunting techniques that occurred at the ‘Buffalo Jump’. This is a great place to bring kids as they not only get to learn about the history of Canada, but also about the people who originated in this great country.
- Whistler – As one of the best ski resorts in the world and a host of the 2010 Winter Olympic games, Whistler is a fantastic place to bring the family. Not only does it offer far more than skiing and snowboarding in the winter, there is a surprising amount of activities to get involved in during the summer months, from swimming in lakes to world class mountain biking and ziplining through the forest. If you are spending some time in BC, Whistler is the perfect place for tourists.
These were just a few of the fantastic sites that can be seen in Western Canada, but there are numerous other attractions to discover in this great region, including Edmonton, Penticton and the Kootenays. If you are considering moving to this region, it’s a great idea to visit these places first, we’re sure you won’t be disappointed. If anything, these beautiful locations are likely to make your transition so much easier.
