One week in August British Columbia or Pacific Northwest

Jump to last reply

I am traveling with an 18 year old for one week in mid August and would like to find a way of covering all the criteria below if possible. Am open to any suggestions re the Canadian west coast and the US Pacific Northwest.

-main point of trip: rest and relaxation as opposed to intensive sight seeing
-temperatures no higher than low 80's
- my son enjoys seeing/ photographing wildlife and water sports and biking
-I enjoy seeing wildlife, swimming, walking on the beach, sunshine

I was imagining an inexpensive, quiet and charming bed and breakfast near the water, not too far from where we will fly into (as we only have a week I did not want to spend it driving), close to wildlife, boat rides, swimming, walks and bike rides on the beach, with evenings in a town or city for dinner. Surrounded by nature sounds and healthy living.

We have never been to Canada, so I thought this might be a good although brief introduction, but I am open to the Pacific Northwest. The main thing is trying to find a place we can fly into which will get us close to a place that is quiet and restful in nature, as described above. My son likes cooler temperatures and I like sun and swimming, hence the idea of going to visit this part of the world. I visited Seattle years ago, but only in winter. We will be flying from Houston and then on to Cedar Rapids, IA. I had looked into a lake vacation in Colorado, but I would not want too high an altitude. I had also looked into Mackinac Island in Michigan but it seemed that the drive there would take many hours from the airport.

I would appreciate any suggestions!

Thanks so much!
