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 only and change is in Canadian.

Great shuttle system except there should have been more options. Multiple buses doing a circuit though a boring little town. There should have been some alternate routes to visit some of the outlying areas. Nanaimo was a nice but boring little town. Not much shopping evident. Walked all over and other than the old quarter, there was almost no opportunity to do any shopping. Several breweries. White Sails was good, but like most other places, did not open till 3PM. Not a lot of decent places to eat. The Lighthouse was nice but TINY. At least a 30 minute wait. This is an issue when you are on a limited time schedule. Like Disney, I don't want to spend a lot of time in lines.

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.
