Millennials vote B.C. towns and cities top places to visit in 2018

The millennial. Maybe he’s currently wearing ironic suspenders while typing a text message on a typewriter. Perhaps she’s wearing a floppy hat, taking a picture of her brunch.

No matter how people feel about millennials, there is something that can’t be denied: They have excellent taste in travel.

Golden made Expedia’s list of Canadian millennials recommendations of their favourite places to visit in 2018, alongside cities and towns across the world.

Golden joins the ranks of other British Columbia cities and towns that were voted into the travel destinations of 2018, including Victoria, Vancouver, Port Alberni, and Powell River. They fall alongside worldly destinations like St. Lucia in the Caribbean, Santiago in Chile, Edinburgh in Scotland, Reykjavik in Iceland, and many more places.

Millennials aren’t just trend adopters, they’re trend setters. This is why just about everyone is interested in millennial travel trends these days. Luckily, they’re happy to share the goods. Expedia.ca asked 1,000 Canadians where they’d recommend travelers visit in 2018, and then filtered it by the millennial voice (ages 18-34). The respondents were more apt to international destinations, more introspective in their reasons, and more creative in their preferences. Expedia.ca is confident that these top places will soon become too popular for the average visitor.

There was one respondent enthusiastically recommend The Rockies at large. There are so many fantastic towns illuminating the rugged peaks of the mountain range that it was hard to highlight just one. But Expedia narrowed it down, going with Golden, B.C. It’s crisp. It’s lovely. The name itself implies a golden winner.

Top Things to Do in Golden:

Pair that brisk air with a chilled brew. If we had to direct you to one brewery in town, make time for Whitetooth Brewery. They have options like the Speed Metal, with herbal hops and dark chocolate malts, or the Truth Dare Consequence, with juniper berries and smoked malt.

Maybe after a few rounds at the pub you’ll finally be brave enough for the ultimate activity: skydiving. Steel your nerves and jump out of a plane with Skydive Extreme Yeti.

They say that things can get weird in the woods, and we think that’s a good thing. Check out Motion Notion, which features camping, electronic music, yoga, and a trippy atmosphere that will leave you open to the universe.
