Downtown Tampa is undergoing enormous changes, with new condos helping bring in trendy new restaurants and shops. The Epicurean Hotel is a foodie’s delight, and there are tons of other great spots.
British Columbia is a true marvel, with sensational natural scenery of all kinds. Kamloops is an underrated destination with a pretty waterfront, good food and a great golf course in nearby Tobiano. Whistler, of course, is a world-class destination with great hotels, skiing and summer activities such as golf, hiking and biking. And be sure to check out the remarkable new Sea to Sky Gondola in Squamish, B.C.
A trip along the Sunshine Coast is an outstanding way to enjoy the beauty of British Columbia. This was my first time visiting, and it will certainly not be my last. I fell in love with the people, not to mention the craggy hills and zig-zag harbours. There’s excellent kayaking and boating, as well as hiking and shopping. And the resorts are terrific, too.
Sonora Resort is one of the top resorts in Canada, a wonderful mix of high-end accommodation and wildneress experiences where you’ll come face to face with nature, including massive grizzly bears (and some cute ones, too, if you’re lucky). Here’s a photo gallery of my recent trip.
