  • Amazing murals that show the historyof Chemainus. Very well maintained, they are easily accessible on foot. Painted foot prints on the sidewalk guide you from one mural to the next. 
  • There were a lot of talented artists who contributed to the street murals. If you haven't seen them, you need to go. They speak to the history of each location in the town. 
  • I visited Chemainus ten years ago, and these wall murals are still very well maintained today. This is definitely my most favourite town in Vancouver Island full of cute little shops and cafe.
