20. Sooke, Vancouver Island

Relax and refresh in Sooke, Vancouver Island

Escape to the wild seaside on the south coast of Vancouver Island. You'll need a car to drive the pretty back roads, where there is a meadery and honey farm, but you can also rent a bike and pedal the Galloping Goose Trail.

Cap it off with a stay at the artsy Sooke Harbour House. Berries seem to hang on every bush in the summer.
