Top 5 Reasons to Visit

Fall Foliage

BC is known for its vibrant changing leaves in the fall. Vancouver Island offers a particularly beautiful array of bright colours as the leaves change. Plan a trip to the Island and enjoy one of True Key’s amazing properties. Sooke Harbour Resort and Marina and Sookepoint Ocean Cottage Resort are both located in picturesque Sooke, B.C. and Sunrise Ridge Waterfront Resort is up island in Parksville, B.C. 

While there are endless places to enjoy the foliage, there are a few particularly stunning spots that come highly recommended on the island. Beacon Hill Park in Victoria, B.C. features maple trees (among a wide variety of trees) that change to stunning reds, oranges, and yellows in the fall. As you walk around Beacon Hill Park, keep an eye out for the Moss Lady sculpture as well as the peacocks that frequent the park, among many ponds and water features. 

To explore the beauty of B.C. in a more woodsy area, check out Goldstream Park. Goldstream Park offers fall adventures for a wide range of abilities. There are various waterfalls to enjoy, including Niagara Falls (not that Niagara Falls), which is just a short 5 minute walk from the parking lot beside the highway. 

Fall Festivals

There are a wide variety of different fall festivals in B.C., including locally organized harvest centered festivals with fall favourites like apple cider, car shows, pumpkin patch adventures and more. The Agassiz Fall Fair in Harrison, B.C. is a great example of a fall fair that offers the perfect dose of autumn magic. Book your trip to Harrison and stay at Harrison Beach Hotel for the perfect fall fair weekend getaway.

Ideal Weather

The heat of summer is often present in the days during the fall, with cooler nights and mornings offering the perfect climate for adventures during the day and cozy experiences in the evenings. Many people enjoy B.C.’s swimming spots well into September.  For a unique swimming experience on a warm fall day, visit the Sooke Potholes, just a short drive from True Key’s two Sooke locations Sookepoint Ocean Cottage Resort and Sooke Harbour Resort and Marina

Wildlife Watching

Fall is the perfect time to plan your trip to see the Bighorn sheep in Radium B.C., as they are most present during fall and winter months.  Their rutting/mating season happens annually during the fall. Rutting is when two male sheep bang heads to establish dominance for mating. It is a dramatic and unique show and even if you don’t see the rutting, you are likely to hear it, it’s loud! To witness the unique bighorn population in Radium, book your stay at Bighorn Meadows Resort and start planning your fall trip today.

Fewer Crowds

Schools are back in session in B.C. after Labour Day, meaning that many popular locations are a bit quieter during the fall months. This is often called a “shoulder” season. Start planning to explore the beauty that B.C. has to offer in the fall and find your perfect True Key Resort location!
