The Magic of Vancouver Island

If you have never been to Vancouver Island, you REALLY are missing out. It is a large island meant for exploring and connecting. The cities and towns that dot the island are unique. The locals are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. The shopping is fun and kitschy. The food is a mixture of British fare/PNW flavors/Asian influence. But if that wasn’t enough–the scenery and wildlife is BREATHTAKING. I guess what I am saying is . . . GO ALREADY!!

I find my way on the island at least once a year and whenever I take someone new with me, I always have them hooked for life. So here are 5 things that I suggest doing while you are on the island.

  1. Esquimalt Lagoon
  2. Chinatown
  3. Coombs Old Country Market
  4. Cathedral Grove
  5. Seaplane Tours
