Victoria – Day 5: Traveling in Nanaimo

Today we will not only visit nature, but also run into an interesting museum. It's the quietest and most peaceful day ever.

Trip duration: 7 days

Mon Petit Choux

Bakeries, Cafés

This must have been the best coffee we've had on our trip. The opening hours are as follows: Monday to Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Very convenient! The price range is very low, so you won't spend much here. However, I would like to clarify at once that there are no high chairs in the institution, so again, if you travel with very young children, then you will be problematic.

Nanaimo Museum

History Museums

The Nanaimo Museum is open from Monday to Saturday from ten in the morning to five in the evening, so if you want to visit this museum, we recommend you go there in the morning. This is a wonderful museum, where you can learn a lot of new, useful and, most importantly, interesting information about the city. Very informative!

Morning Star Bison Ranch. BC Bison Ranch Tours

Very interesting and unusual place to visit. Unambiguous, I'd say. If you and your children love animals, and you would be interested in seeing bison near you, feeding them and photographing them, then you can safely go!

Asteras Greek Taverna

Greek Restaurants

But this place has both vegetarian dishes and high chairs! So, what can we tell you about this place? To begin with the schedule: from Monday to Thursday the institution works from eleven in the morning to ten in the evening, on Friday and Saturday from eleven in the morning to eleven in the evening, and on Sunday from four in the evening to ten in the evening. Now about the place. Wonderful Greek food! It felt like we were really in Greece. Very nice, family atmosphere. Anyway, it's all at the highest level.

Bowen Park


Really a very beautiful park. We have heard about this park that there are a lot of beautiful places there, that newlyweds often walk there and that there are waterfalls. That's what it is. You can't make out any specific places in the park, everything was very, very picturesque. However, it is better to walk in the light of day, in the evening you will not be able to fully enjoy all the beauty.
