Minit-Tune & Brake| Tuesday, October 18, 2016

Summer getaways may be behind us, but it isn’t too late for another holiday this year! Whether you have the itch to get out of town for the weekend or the week, BC offers great views and gorgeous fall foliage right in our backyard. Need some inspiration before hitting the road on your next adventure? Read on for some drives that are as beautiful as ever this time of year.

3 BC Road Trips to Embark On this Fall:

  • Southwest Coast Route: Vancouver-Abbotsford-Chilliwack, Harrison Hot Springs-Hope-Boston Bar-Lytton-Lillooet-Pemberton-Whistler-Squamish-Vancouver
    Enjoy your drive with a side of hiking? If you have 3-5 days, head to the southwest coast for scenic views of the changing leaves this fall. Howe Sounds Crest Trail, Stein River, Joffre Lakes, Eagle Bluffs and countless other great hiking trails offer plenty of active and equally gorgeous routes to break up your journey with some exploration on foot. Other great news? If you run into car trouble, Minit-Tune & Brake Auto Centres have multiple locations along the way to keep you moving.
  • Okanagan Wine Country Route: Kelowna-Peachland-Summerland-Penticton-Okanagan Falls -Osoyoos–Keremeos If you would rather indulge in wine than take on strenuous hikes during your escape, consider this shorter journey. After just 2 hours in the car, you can soak up your destination by sampling reds and whites while taking in the fall colours from afar. The wineries are less busy in the fall, promising a relaxing environment to unwind.
  • Rocky Mountain Trench Route: Golden-Radium Hot Springs-Kimberley-Cranbrook Keep your eyes peeled on your drive through the Rockies for elk, deer, coyotes, caribou, and bears who are busy preparing for the cold winter months. Besides the wildlife, you can enjoy breathtaking views of the snow-dusted Rocky Mountains as their base is engulfed in a vibrant flame of fall colour. Give yourself 2-7 days for the most enjoyment.
