Living in Chilliwack, we’re lucky enough to be surrounded by beautiful scenery. If you’re looking to get out and enjoy the natural beauty that our province has to offer, then you should consider these scenic drives in BC.
Trans-Canada Highway 1: Chilliwack to Cache Creek
If you want to get a sense of what it was like for prospectors who followed the Gold Rush Trail in the 1850s, then take the Trans-Canada Highway 1 north to Cache Creek. You can experience this history, and also take a quick detour to the Othello Tunnels for a spectacular experience. Once you’re in Cache Creek, get out and explore the area — you can even geocache and look for your own treasures.
Get a glimpse of the coastal beauty BC has to offer with one of the best scenic drives out there. Whether it’s a family outing or a romantic weekend getaway, the route from Vancouver to Whistler is a gorgeous one. Check out the roadside viewpoint for a view of Howe Sound and stop at any number of beautiful towns along the way. You can even finish up in Pemberton, just 35 kilometres north of Whistler to golf, mountain bike, fish, and more.
If you need a new vehicle for day trips and commutes, stop by O’Connor Chrylser Dodge Jeep® Ram in Chilliwack.

Across Canada, there are museums and attractions that are giving the world virtual access to their delights. If you’re looking for a way to explore Canada from home, then consider one of these virtual tours.
Canadian Museum of History
Take a step back in time virtually with the Canadian Museum of History. This museum has made many of its exhibits available online, including Alex Janvier’s “Morning Star” and an exhibit that examines the history of Canadian fashion.

The collection numbers over 45,000 objects, and you can simply type what you’re looking for in the search and see thousands of results.

While the news broke earlier this month that the 100th Anniversary Vancouver International Auto Show has been postponed, there hasn’t been a new date set just yet. We will make sure to update you as we get more news. In the meantime, don’t forget to check out the O’Connor Dodge Jeep®Ram Car Show on July 26 and enjoy these Vancouver International Auto Show highlights from last year that you don’t want to forget about.
The Jeep® Gladiator’s Western Canadian Debut
Fiat Chrysler took the Vancouver show by storm last year with the debut of the all-new 2020 Jeep® Gladiator. Combining the utility of a pickup truck and the off-road capabilities of the Wrangler, the Gladiator comes ready to take on the unbeaten path ahead. It showed off its off-road readiness with its available 33-inch off-road tires, Dana 44 axles, Tru-Lock electric front- and rear-axle lockers, and more.
Performance-Ready Models from Mopar
During the show, you had the chance to feast your eyes on the wonders of Mopar. This exciting showcase had over 25 Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep®, and Ram models on display, highlighting how aftermarket parts can help make vehicles of all shapes and sizes that much better.
Test Driving the Chrysler Pacifica
If you’re looking for a minivan to haul your family around town in, then it’s likely you’ve considered the Chrysler Pacifica. Just new to the market during last year’s Auto Show, this minivan was actually available to the public for test drives, making it easy to get a sense of whether or not you wanted the vehicle without having to go into a dealership.

There’s nothing like heading out for the day to enjoy
beautiful cars and family-friendly fun. Luckily, Vancouver has a number of car
shows each year that you can attend. These are some Vancouver area car shows
that you should consider heading to throughout the year.
The Vancouver International Auto Show
Every year, car enthusiasts from across Canada join in slobbering over new cars at the Vancouver International Auto Show. From March 25 to March 29, 2020, this show will take over the Vancouver Convention Centre West, showing off concept cars and new models from some of the biggest names in the automotive industry. It’s the perfect opportunity to see what’s to come from your favourite carmaker.
Do you love aftermarket modifications? Then check out DRIVEN, which focuses on just that. This annual event highlights some of the best accessories and custom carmakers, giving you the chance to get inspiration on how you can modify your own vehicle.
O’Connor Car Show
Finally, we’d be remiss not to mention our own car show that we hold each year. This year, our second-annual show happened in July. It was attended by a range of car enthusiasts, who got a chance to check out classic and current vehicles, including a 1969 Charger, 1966 Impala, and 67 Dodge Dart. We had live music performances and also raised $6,500 to the BC Cancer Foundation based on our “Drive for 65” campaign.
