Nanaimo in the Summer, so many things to do!

If you're looking for some fun and relaxing things to do in the summer in Nanaimo, British Columbia, you're in luck! Nanaimo is a beautiful city on Vancouver Island that offers a variety of indoor and outdoor activities for all ages and interests. Here are some of my personal favourites:

Hiking and Biking in Nanaimo

- Go for a hike or bike ride on one of the many trails in the area. You can enjoy the scenic views of the ocean, mountains, and forests, and maybe spot some wildlife along the way. Some popular trails are the Nanaimo River Trail, the Parkway Trail, and the Harbourfront Walkway.

My favourite spot to go hiking is just up above Jingle Pot road where the waterfalls are (it's called Ammonite falls).  It's never crowded and our dogs really love the trails. 

The Nanaimo Museum

- Visit the Nanaimo Museum and learn about the history and culture of the city. You can see exhibits on the coal mining industry, the First Nations people, and the famous Nanaimo bars. The museum also hosts special events and workshops throughout the year.

Ocean and lake beaches In around Nanaimo

- Cool off at one of the many beaches or lakes in Nanaimo. You can swim, kayak, paddleboard, or just relax on the sand. Some of the best spots are Departure Bay Beach, Westwood Lake Park, and Neck Point Park.

Nanaimo's old city quarter

- Explore the Old City Quarter and Downtown Nanaimo and discover the local shops, cafes, restaurants, and art galleries. You can find everything from books and antiques to clothing and jewelry. Don't forget to try some of the delicious food and drinks that Nanaimo has to offer.

More activities in Nanaimo

- Have some fun at one of the many attractions in Nanaimo. You can play mini-golf, go bowling, watch a movie, or visit a farm. Some places you can check out are our Beban Park Golf Course, Brechin Lanes, Galaxy Cinemas Nanaimo, and McNab's Corn Maze.

These are just some of the things you can do in Nanaimo in the summer. There's something for everyone in this fantastic city.

I hope you enjoy your stay and have a wonderful time!
