Whistler

The perfect trip. The ideal adventure. Whistler is Canada’s answer to your expectations of endless fun and relaxation. Located in the breathtaking Coast Mountains of British Columbia, Whistler is a resort community that even hosted the world during the 2010 Winter Olympics. Prior to the Olympics and quickly after, the town became an international oasis for adventure and beauty. The Whistler-Blackcomb Mountains provide a natural getaway for alpine skiing and snowboarding in the winter, and mountain biking, hiking, and camping during summer.

San Diego, California

San Diego is often called “America’s Finest City,” and it isn’t difficult to see why. The eighth largest city in the United States offers heaps of attractions, culture and an undeniable cosmopolitan vibe, but you’d never guess its size by the emphatically laid-back feeling you get from this Southern California city, its people and of course its famously wonderful weather. With year-round temperatures in the 70s (21°C) and almost constant sunshine, there is no such thing as the wrong time to visit it and enjoy world-class museums, 5-star dining, internationally famous beaches and an unbeatable hospitality.
