British Columbia and the Atlantic provinces lead a ranking of outstanding destinations to explore as the pandemic wanes. Noting the anticipated joyful celebrations that will likely coincide with fall harvest season, the digital magazine™ has selected the South Okanagan at the top of its "20 Best Places to Travel in Canada for 2021".

Produced by Canadian travel journalists, the ranking is sponsored by Trippzy™, the mobile trivia game that provides real-world rewards such as flight discounts.

South Okanagan consists of two main centres — Penticton and Osoyoos — and six small municipalities — Naramata, Peachland, Summerland, Okanagan Falls, Oliver, and Kaleden. "This year, given what the world is going through, South Okanagan was a clear choice for the No. 1 spot in our rankings because of all of the outdoor activities it offers and the sense of safety you feel once you're there," Co-founder Adrian Brijbassi says.

"We are thrilled to receive this recognition," says Brad Morgan, Marketing Director of Travel Penticton and Managing Partner of Visit South Okanagan. "The diversity of experiences and the connectivity of the partner communities is what attracts visitors to the South Okanagan. We have something for everyone and the scenic route that connects us makes for a day-tripper's paradise. We look forward to welcoming visitors when the time is right."

While British Columbia places five locations on the list, Atlantic Canada enters six. The region whose stance against COVID-19 was for much of 2020 the hallmark of public-health response in the country features locations from all four provinces. Full article:
