Golden, BC

Located in a panorama of mountain and water, this unpretentious community is an idyllic vacation spot - a splendid cast of massive snow-clad peaks, shimmering lakes and high country blue skies.

Preserved remnants of early 19th century architecture harmonize with alluring shops and restaurants. Playgrounds, in-town hiking paths and a riverside park are appealing features. Nature prevails on a picture-perfect golf course with a nest of eagles on the 14th hole. Naturalists converge on Golden as a vantage point for wildlife viewing and birdwatching. Anglers fish the local rivers and lakes for trophies.
