Widely regarded as one of Canada's most livable cities, Nanaimo remains both an industrial center and a tourist hub on Vancouver Island.
Get outdoors at Newcastle Island and Pipers Lagoon Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Nanaimo: Beach Front Park (in Qualicum Beach), Enrico Winery (in Mill Bay) and Merridale Cidery & Distillery (in Cobble Hill). There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at The Raptors, stroll around Maffeo Sutton Park, take in the pleasant sights at Harbourfront Walkway, and take a memorable tour with Tours.

To see reviews, more things to do, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Nanaimo vacation maker app .

In May, plan for daily highs up to 19°C, and evening lows to 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
