for its varied landscapes and more than two dozen
parks, the city of Nanaimo boasts one of the prettiest
waterfronts in Canada, conveniently located to serve
as a home base for exploring Vancouver Island. Nanaimo
is the only all-purpose port city on Vancouver Island,
with every facility required to serve both the commercial
and recreational needs of business and tourism.
Once the location of five separate native villages,
its name derives from a Coast Salish word, Sney-ny-mo,
the "meeting place" - a perfect description of
the rapidly-growing harbour community at the centre
of Vancouver Island's highway and ferry system.
A playground of land and sea activities, Nanaimo
is a perfect place for a family vacation, a year-round
golf getaway, or a romantic weekend.
