5 Best Things To Do in the summer in Vancouver Island cities...


So I have decided to do a blog series highlighting the best/most popular things to do in various cities on Vancouver Island in the summer. I definitely have some opinions on what I feel are the best things to do in particular cities, but I would also like some feedback from readers (since I didn't grow up in every city on Vancouver Island!) If you could, please take a moment and leave a comment with YOUR opinion on what you love to do on Vancouver Island in the summer (please include which city your input should be included in) Thank you!

Win a blue ribbon at the Coombs Fair!
Attend the island's shortest parade in Errington on Hi Neighbour Day (while visiting the Errington Farmers Market, of course.)
Swim in the ocean at Qualicum Beach.
Swim in the Englishman River at Top Ridge Regional Park.
Go for ice cream at Silver Meadows farm in Errington.

If you can't get away for a holiday. In the Comox Valley going for a walk around the Air Park and having lunch at the cafe is a nice way to spend a few hours.

A drive up to MT. Washington for lunch.

Or just go for a walk along many of the Beach areas in town.

Just a few things I like to do in the summer here in the Comox Valley.

1. Float down the Nanaimo River on a hot day
2. Hike to the top of Mount Benson for spectacular views of Nanaimo
3. Pack a picnic and spend the day walking around Newcastle Island
4. Grab an ice cream, walk the seawall and watch the float planes and boats come and go from the Nanaimo Harbour
5. Walk around Old City Quarter downtown Nanaimo and follow the Nanaimo Bar Trail

Mini golf & Bumper Boats at Paradise Fun Park in Parksville.
We love going every summer sometimes every day!
Summer vacation would not be the same if we didn't get to go to the Castle and The Big Boot!
It's been a tradition for many years, something for the family to do together and it's fun!
