It is a district of lakes and mountains in the southern interior of Canada's British Columbia province. There aren't many towns, and those there are, are small and interesting. Expect lots of arts, eg jazz festivals, folk music, awesome ferry rides across massive lakes, very friendly local people. Must sees are Nelson, a rather bohemian town, Kaslo, and the 'ghost towns' near Kaslo. These old towns died after the end of the gold mining industry but there are few people still living there. Best to go in the summer as winters can be harsh unless you like skiing.
