An Ideal Vacation: Alberta

Following the raging success of my first Ideal Vacation submission (okay, so it got some pageviews, I’m still waiting on some actual comments!), I’m on to my next province.

What I know about Alberta: it has oil sands and processes that messy stuff in a relatively clean way, from what I’ve heard.  Also, they are responsible for Clippers.  I think there is also a big mall.

Now that my ignorance is there for all to see, it’s your turn to step up and tell me what the best things are to see and do in Alberta!

An Ideal Vacation, Part 1: British Columbia

Today I was thinking about travel again (big surprise!), and came up with an idea.

Wouldn’t it be cool if there was somewhere you could go online to find the best recommended things to see and do, as recommended by people who have lived or travelled there?  Okay, probably there is a site like that, but I wanna make one for me!

Every few days, I’ll start a post indicating a new place.  Then, if you’ve been there and did/saw something interesting, tell me what you liked about it in the comments section.  Hopefully, I’ll end up with a list of must-dos for each province.  I’m starting in Canada, since I haven’t really visited many provinces other than my own, and would like to ask you, my dear readers, to help me choose what I should visit when I eventually make that cross-country trip!

Ideally, this will be a way to learn more about my country from those who have experienced it first-hand, not from over-hyped travel brochures.

Today I will start with a province I know nearly nothing about, except that it hosted the 2010 Winter Olympics.  So, tell me: what are the must-sees and must-dos in the beautiful province of British Columbia?
