VentureWeb clients featured strongly in the "20 Best Places to Visit in Canada for 2016" just announced by leading Canadian travel site, Vacay.ca. The Sea to Sky country, featuring the Sea to Sky Gondola in VentureWeb’s hometown of Squamish, topped the list, with Tofino and Banff also featuring in the top 10.
Each year, Vacay.ca picks the Top 20 Places to Visit in Canada. Its 2016 selection features three locales that VentureWeb is proudly working with: the Sea to Sky country, Tofino, and Banff. Vacay.ca predicts that domestic tourism and road travel will dominate the vacation plans of Canadians this year, with low gas prices, the weak Canadian dollar, and upcoming Canadian 150th commemorations motivating Canadians to stay closer to home. The Sea to Sky, Tofino, and Banff are all prime road tripping destinations.
Vacay.ca nominates the Sea to Sky Country as the number 1 destination for Canadians in 2016. It notes that Squamish is enjoying “new-found glory” and highlights the Sea to Sky Gondola, which VentureWeb has worked with from its opening in 2014, as a major drawcard. The views over Howe Sounds and the coast mountains from the top are “some of the most spectacular you’ll see anywhere”.
Tofino makes number 3 on the list; an authentic coastal community with a deep culture and history that is missing from many coastal locales. VentureWeb has worked closely with Tourism Tofino to build an engaging and informative website and ongoing digital marketing initiatives. Vacay.ca also highlights Tofino’s Wickaninnish Inn, another of VentureWeb’s clients, as one of Canada’s most acclaimed hotels. The family-owned and operated Wick is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2016.
In 10th place is Banff, Alberta. VentureWeb is working with Banff & Lake Louise Tourism to develop a one-stop source of information about where to eat, sleep, and play in the Banff and Lake Louise region. Vacay.ca calls Banff one of Canada’s “true world-class destinations”.
