Go early, spend the day walking, browsing, and have lunch or snack at one of the local shops. Pick up local tourist magazine and try the local made Nanaimo bar in a coffee shop. Do not miss the Dollar-rama Store...great finds, but they do not accept debt cards or credit cards...cash only and change is in Canadian.

The train trip from Port Alberney is fun, but there's an hour plus bus ride to get to the train. The tour volunteers were knowledgeable and friendly and the staff at the saw mill provided a delightful lunch.

Nanaimo was gorgeous! We went on an excursion to the Cathedral Groves and Coombs Market. The grove was beautiful and the air was so fresh and clear. The market was adorable and everyone was so kind to us. They have little shops in downtown Nanaimo that are so cure and fun. It was a great port to see and I would love to visit it again.

The Historic Old town offers little or no real things to do not interesting at all. The Museum is small and lacking any real interest.
