Entertaining, relaxing and tranquil, Chemainus is a favourite destination for family fun and romantic getaways alike. It is an artistic community which boasts a unique mix of gift shops, antique malls, art galleries, boutiques, specialty shops, cafes, bakeries and restaurants. There is an 18-hole golf course (Mount Brenton), many parks and hiking trails, plus a popular boating and fishing spot so plenty for the outdoor enthusiast. Many beautiful murals detail the history of the town, which adds to its uniqueness.
