Presidents Message Summer 2019

School is out for summer, and what a perfect time to take a family vacation!

Beautiful British Columbia is home to some of the most amazing places to visit on your summer vacation with something for the whole family, and at Wilson’s, we have your transportation covered to many of BC’s top vacation spots!

In this issue of Connector, you will see our newly re-branded Vancouver Island Connector, formally known as Tofino Bus All Island Express. This service is great for anyone looking to explore our beautiful island, from Victoria all the way to Port Hardy. Running daily with multiple pick up and drop off locations, you can create the perfect itinerary for some summer fun in the sun! One of our family’s favorite summer spots is Parksville which hosts the Quality Foods Sand Sculpting Competition and Exhibition each year. Here you will find some of the most amazing Sand Sculptures along with a Beach Festival you won’t want to miss.

Speaking of beaches, if you are looking to get your toes in the sand this summer Tofino is the spot for you! Hop onto our Tofino Bus service and let the vacation begin as you sit back, relax and let us take care of the drive for you. Home to the longest and largest beach in the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, Tofino’s appropriately named “Long Beach” is the perfect place to unwind with a beach walk and some spectacular views. And for the more adventurous types, check out one of the many local surf rental shops and test your skills at riding those waves!

Also featured in this issue of the Connector is the new Landsea Hop on Hop off tour, the perfect way to see Vancouver your way this summer. With 15 different stops including Yaletown, Stanley Park Pavilion and Chinatown there is something for everyone to see and discover in Vancouver.

If you are visiting Vancouver this summer, make sure to check out The Fair at the PNE which opens August 1st. The Fair is always a summer favorite for both locals and visitors with games, entertainment, rides and plenty of prizes to be won.

Did you know that Whistler is not only a fantastic winter destination, but also a fantastic summer vacation spot? For those looking for a more adventurous summer get-away, check out our BC Connector with daily service to Whistler. With some amazing hiking trails and mountain biking, paired with spectacular restaurants and accommodations, Whistler is the perfect spot for those looking to do some exploring in nature this summer.

Wherever this summer takes you, we want to thank you for choosing Wilson’s to be part of your journey. We hope that you make memories that will last you all winter long, and that you enjoy your journey as much as you enjoy your destination!
