Widely regarded as one of Canada's most livable cities, Nanaimo remains both an industrial center and a tourist hub on Vancouver Island.
Change things up with these side-trips from Nanaimo: The Butchart Gardens (in Central Saanich) and Victoria (Fisherman's Wharf, Inner Harbour, & more). There's lots more to do: walk around Newcastle Island, step off the mainland to explore Protection Island, and take in the pleasant sights at Harbourfront Walkway.

To find ratings, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, read Nanaimo day trip planning website .

In August in Nanaimo, expect temperatures between 24°C during the day and 19°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
