Canadian-history lovers should put Quesnel, British Columbia, high on their list because it's the beginning point for the Alexander Mackenzie Heritage Trail that ends in Bella Coola.
It's located 435 mi/700 km northeast of Vancouver, and part of the fun of Quesnel is getting there: The sights—cattle ranches, lakes, forests, mountains, river canyons—make for a wonderful and relaxing trip.
About 80 mi/125 km north of Quesnel is Prince George, where the Fraser-Fort George Regional Museum examines the fur trade.
