Town of Comox
This community of 13,000 people was named the ‘Land of Plenty' by the Kwakwala people who first enjoyed its abundance of fish and rich soil. It remains a land of plenty with a fertile and mild climate good for farming – and for fun. Golf, watersports, and skiing at nearby Mount Washington are popular pastimes. Community events including Nautical Days and the Filberg Festival keep Comox buzzing through the summer months.
How to get there: Take either Highway 19 or Highway 19A about 75 minutes north of Nanaimo past Cumberland and Courtenay.
