Activities/Attractions: Nanaimo is among British Columbia's most liveable cities, having a favorable balance of lifestyle, employment and investment opportunities. Centrally located on the east coast of Vancouver Island, 111 km north of Victoria, Nanaimo is the regional service centre for mid and north Vancouver Island.

Nanaimo is an excellent place to live, work and do business. All this in the friendliest climate in Canada, surrounded by some of the most beautiful wilderness in the world.

Nanaimo is Vancouver Island's second city, the gateway to mid island. Car ferries are arriving all the time from Horseshoe Bay and Tsawwassen across the water in Vancouver. Though growing fast, Nanaimo's population is still under 100,000. People are friendly and outgoing, and there's plenty to do year round.

"The views are amazing from the backyard of John and Moni Murray's home on the hill, and it may be where you'll spend most of your time. The hostel is a five-minute walk from downtown, it's great for families and has an airy outdoor shower, barbecue facilities and a fun mural created by past guests."
