Wreck Beach- Potentially One of Canada’s Seven Wonders?

From the Northern Lights and the Rocky Moutains to Old Quebec City and Niagra Falls, Canada has many spectacular sights and attractions to offer to tourists and citizens alike. CBC.ca is currently featuring a poll for YOU to elect the top Seven of our Wonders, and Vancouver’s own Wreck Beach is in the running!

Are you familliar with the infamous (or famous, depending on your opinion of clothing) nude beach? UBC students and Kitsilano residents alike flock to the stunning natural beach year-round to enjoy the sun, sand, and surf. However, the trek to wreck is a committment… The journey includes 400+ stairs (on my last count). Not a big deal when you are on your way down. But going back up is a whole other story, especially if you’ve indulged in any of the beverages and snacks that are notoriously sold on the beach.

Regardless of the hippie connotations, Wreck Beach truly is one of Canada’s Wonders. Want to see what else made it through the nominations? Go to http://www.cbc.ca/sevenwonders/nominees.html
