I have had the pleasure of seeing quite a bit of this amazing province because I was a touring actor in a childrens' theatre company where we did about 200 performances over most of a year. We toured our shows to schools all over the interior and as far north as the Alaskan panhandle. We went to some communities with no roads, you had to fly in by float plane (packing set, props and costumes along!!). The scenery was spectacular, we felt grateful to be constantly surrounded by things that tourists would pay thousands to see. But after appreciating the look of the mountain or valley, we had to get into our van or plane and cross the bloody thing. I guess part of the beauty of the wilderness is it the challenge it presents. If you are ever here, you have to see [[Vancouver]], [[Victoria]], [[Kelowna]], [[Okanagan Valley]]. For real out-doorsy experiences, go up the north coast to [[Bella Coola]] or out to [[Tofino]] on [[Vancouver Island]]. Out there, the sun sets on the wild, open Pacific. There is some fine dining on the island too at Sooke Harbour House.

Many US and Canadian companies have their head offices in my home town of Calgary. There is a lot of rivalry between [[Calgary]] and [[Edmonton]], in everything from hockey to who has the best shopping mall. Check out [[Lethbridge]] and environs for a country-western experience. [[Drumheller]]'s badlands are a great family get-away because of the paleontology museums and fossil exhibits. Who doesn't like dinosaurs?
