The Harbour City

Located on the traditional and unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples and the traditional territory of the Snuneymuxw First Nation, Nanaimo is a city of 100,000 residents and growing. Nanaimo is the second largest city on Vancouver Island and is often referred to as “The Harbour City”. The Harbour City is famed for its gorgeous, extensive stretch of harbour walkway and is the busiest harbour and distribution center north of Victoria. Bordered by Mount Benson to the west, the Nanaimo Estuary to the south and Gabriola Island to the east, Naniamo is surrounded by rich, diverse ecosystems. With spectacular land and seascapes, endless outdoor activities, a growing shopping district, great dining and thriving arts community, Nanaimo is a city with the perfect mix of city and wilderness.

Between the rivers, the ocean and the mountains, you can take advantage of countless opportunities to explore and experience vastly different landscapes all within a few kilometers of this major city. From hiking and birdwatching to rock climbing and bungee jumping and everything in between, Nanaimo is a dream location for nature lovers.

Nanaimo shopping offers everything from recognizable chain retailers and box stores to funky, locally owned, one-of-a-kind shops and boutiques.

For dining, try a meal at one of the local restaurants that focuses on using fresh, local ingredients and creates relationships with the farmers and suppliers in the area or visit one of the many breweries in the area and discover the flavours that the rapidly growing craft brewery scene in Nanaimo has to offer.

Nanaimo’s thriving arts community has many artisans who work in various mediums including pottery, jewelry making, painting, sculpture, carving, weaving, embroidery, knitting and more! Many of these artists have their work in several small, locally owned shops and boutiques in the downtown shopping area where you can find and purchase them. If you’re interested in learning more about the local culture you can visit the Nanaimo Museum and the Nanaimo Art Gallery, important institutions that weave together Nanaiamo’s past and future.
