For some reason, summer feels shorter than all the other seasons so it's imperative that you make the most of your summer this year and squeeze as much fun out of it as possible. With summer right around the corner, we're on the lookout for incredible spots to show our besties!\nWe put together a list of secret spots around BC that you should definitely plan to check out with your friends. From hidden beaches and hiking trails to mini-getaways and spas, there's something for every pair of BFFs on this list to have a blast together this summer.\nHere are 17 secret places in BC that you can bring your BFF to this summer:\nNorvan Falls\nView this post on Instagram Throw back to my first hike to this amazing waterfall! Since then I’ve been lucky enough to hike it in every season and watch the colours change! If it’s not on your list for summer you might want to add it! A post shared by B.C. Photographer (@bc_exploring) on Apr 11, 2019 at 8:17pm PDT\nIf you and your BFF love hiking together, then you have to head out to Norvan Falls in Lynn Valley for an afternoon. The bravest hikers among us can even take a dip in the pool right underneath the falls!\nFrench Beach Provincial Park\nView this post on Instagram “Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me.” (John 15:4) Throughout these past seven months, this has been a constant theme. God has been growing my understanding of my place in His kingdom every day, and I know that abiding in Him is the only place I ever want to be. #Kaleo2019 A post shared by Steven Lofting (@steven_lofting) on Mar 30, 2019 at 3:39pm PDT\nOne of the most unique and little-known beaches in the province, French Beach is great for camping and the sunsets are unreal.
