Facebook Travel Tips Winners

As you page through the 2011 Parksville Qualicum Beach Travel & Leisure Guide you’ll notice each section features an introduction from our area guide, Reb Stevenson.

We received an impressive number of entries for our Parksville Qualicum Travel Tips contest and loved hearing your tips about the many things to do and enjoy in this beautiful region. Wondering who won? Adam Piechnik won the Voter’s Choice Grand Prize by getting the most overall votes and will enjoy a five-night stay in Parksville Qualicum with admission to local attractions. This was our voters’ overall favourite entry: Memories From My Youth! Jan Stewart took the Grand Prize for our panel’s favourite submission, also winning a five-night stay in Parksville Qualicum. This was our overall favourite entry: What a Wonderful World, woof Congratulations Adam Piechnik and Jan Stewart – we hope you each enjoy your getaway in Parksville Qualicum!

Reb writes a travel column called “Sleeping Around” for the Toronto Star. But she’ll never forget where she got her start: The Parksville Qualicum Beach News. Having grown up in first Qualicum, then Parksville, Reb drew on her personal expertise in the areas of ice cream eating, mini golfing and aimless beachcombing to write the introductions for each section in this guide. Reb’s intros are followed by a number of short testimonials that our Facebook fans wrote for us as part of a “Travel Tips” contest that Oceanside Tourism ran in November, 2010.

Where in the world is Oceanside? While you flip through this guide and travel in the central Vancouver Island region, you are bound to see reference to a place called “Oceanside”. Although you won’t find Oceanside on any maps, this is the name local Islanders often call the charming collection of communities that includes Parksville, Qualicum Beach, Nanoose Bay, French Creek, Lighthouse Country (Qualicum Bay, Bowser, Deep Bay), and Arrowsmith Coombs Country (Errington, Coombs, Hilliers, Whisky Creek).

Angie Barnard (Panel Selected Winner) Nanaimo, BC ”Wading At The Falls”

Blair Holtner (Voter Selected Winner) Victoria,BC “So You Think You Know Your Area? Try Geocaching.”

The GPS is loaded with coordinates, it‘s time for a geocaching road trip from Victoria to Parksville. With literally 1000’s of these hidden treasures scattered along our oceanfront, highways, back roads, hiking trails, rivers, lakes and parks, you can’t help but discover just how beautiful and amazing our island really is. Earth friendly family fun, give it a try.

Little Qualicum Falls was a fantastic outing for a family double-date with four preschoolers. We went for a short walk, ooh’d and aaah’d at the falls, then went riverside to a very accessible wading area for the kids. Wow! The water was cold, but we all took turns taking a dip, skipping stones and laughing in the sunshine!

Reb Stevenson says… Impenetrable ice, cruel wind and snow studded with candy wrappers and cigarette butts: these were the harsh realities of my first year away from home. I quickly realized something about Oceanside: it’s Canada’s answer to Eden. Whether you’re here for a lazy summer fling or a brisk winter break, our friendly beaches, unspoilt woodland and

pretty parks are always at your service. Try camping, caving, hiking, bird watching, biking or...or, forest sniffing (yes, it really smells that good).

Jeremy Aubertin ”The Best of Qualicum Beach and Parksville!”

If you are in the Parksville or Qualicum Beach area, you must take a short drive to Cathedral Grove! This is a park you will never forget! The trees are unbelievable, some have trunks wider than a car. There are interpretive trails and amazing photo opportunities abound.

The West Coast of Vancouver Island has the longest and most reliable whale watching season.


Canada’s Riviera? You decide. Christy Bednarsky ”Where the Dog Salmon Run”

Valerie Baker ”Why I Love Living in Qualicum Beach”

As a resident of Qualicum Beach I feel so privileged to have such a fabulous beach and promenade on my own doorstep, which I enjoy all seasons of the year, with its wellmaintained grassy areas, majestic trees providing shade over picnic tables, spectacular sunsets, and winter storms. Magnificent!

As I walked down the path, I passed immense trees and rambling rivers to reach the jewel of this hike: the Little Qualicum Falls. Watching the water flow into the stream below, I was reminded of the beauty of Vancouver Island. Little Qualicum Falls Park is a not-to-bemissed treasure, on an island full of treasures.

Jan Stewart

“What a Wonderful World, Woof”

For those who visit Oceanside with their four legged friends, there is a great dog walking park. Take the first exit to Parksville, turn left at the next set of lights (where there are RVs for sale) and look for the entrance to the top bridge trail. Park and bring your puppies to a fantastic, wonderful walk.

Jordan Worrall “Top Bridge and Bread and Honey”

Top Bridge: by far the best place to swim in the summer – especially during the week at nonpeak hours. I love the winding river, fresh water and gorgeous surrounding forest. 8

Unrivaled natural beauty... Roll with the tides of time on Oceanside’s Beaches any time of year Sharlene Desbiens “Rathtrevor Recommended”

Our family goes to Rathtrevor Beach every summer for our vacation. We LOVE it! There’s smooth sand, interesting sea life in the tide pools that the kids LOVE to learn about. The water is warm during the summer and nice to walk in for miles during low tide. HIGHLY recommended!

from prawns to pizzas Reb Stevenson says… Along with “birthday” and “breakup,” the word “vacation” is code for “reckless eating spree.” You’ll be happy to know that Oceanside welcomes you and your insatiable stomach with open arms. DIY foodies can stock up on local products at a farmer’s market, while restaurant addicts have their pick of cuisines ranging from British to SouthEast Asian. And sunset dining is a must, whether it’s a formal seafood meal or a cheeseburger on a bench. We won’t judge.

Marta Modzelewska (Voter Selected Winner) Vancouver, BC “A Piece of the Best Place on Earth!”

Breakfast at the Shady waterfront restaurant is a beautiful experience. We go to eat our breakfast on the deck with a wonderful view of the water and the beach!

Corene Inouye (Panel Selected Winner)

Tofino, BC ”Family Fun”

This fall, a few girlfriends got together for treatments at the Grotto Spa, followed by dinner at the Treetop Tapas & Grill. Dining in robes and slippers was an out-of-the-ordinary, surprisingly comfortable experience that I would highly recommend. The endless Tapas meal we enjoyed was a very special treat – every single tapas was mouthwatering and exquisitely presented!

Jeremy Aubertin “The Best of Qualicum Beach and Parksville!”

Hilary Smith

Judy Preston

On a recent trip to Parksville we had the good luck of stumbling upon the Rod & Gun, which first opened in 1895. Unfortunately, the original deal of $1.50 for bed, breakfast and dinner is no longer available, however the breakfast we got was still delicious and a great deal! And who wouldn’t love that sign?

My favourite restaurant in Parksville is at Pacific Shores Resort. The food is delicious and the giant salt water aquarium is fascinating.

Adam Piechnik

“Memories From My Youth!”

There is a must-visit restaurant in Parksville; Sushi Ichi. Coming from Vancouver, my taste for sushi borders on impeccable, and this is one place guaranteed not to disappoint! When you visit, make sure to order the Parksville Roll, as it’s not even on the menu.

“Learning to Swim”

Lilly Helpard “Geocaching”

Every trip to Qualicum we have to stop off at Quality Foods and enjoy a Latte and a bite to eat, plus some people watching at their upstairs café.

At least a half-dozen Sunday brunch locales let you feed a hungry brood on a budget or splurge on ultimate decadence.

Lefty’s Restaurant in Parksville is a great casual and fun restaurant! They have a great menu and you can re-fuel with their organic coffee! Great place for families or couples.

If you are headed to Qualicum and are looking for a great place to eat, check out the Sandbar Cafe & Art Gallery. While you are enjoying the home cooked food, you can take in some of the amazing art they have on display! A great way to get a great picture of local art and delicious food!

Parksville is one of the most relaxing places I’ve ever visited. In one day we walked along the beach, with water so still it looked like glass. After that we hopped into the hotel’s hot tub and melted away any remaining stress. Then back to the room for a beverage on our beach view patio. Does it get any better?

Boutiques & Markets Reb Stevenson says…

Viviana Ruiz “Summer 2010”

We stayed an extra day just to catch the local street fair. It was wonderful and I even had my tarot cards read. We also had some Hawaiian snow cones. Our eight year old daughter had a very long conversation with one of the artisans about rocks and jewellery. She loved this. Summer by the Sea Art, jewelry, handcrafted toys, baked goods – you name it, we’ve got it at Parksville’s eclectic Tuesday night market on Craig Street.

The Black Eyed Peas are cool n’ all, but I prefer being serenaded by Qualicum’s town bells while I shop. The cohesive village centre, citizens who offer cheery “hellos” and hourly chimes almost seem transported from England itself. The best part is, this quaint community has put the kibosh on chain stores, making it a haven for locallyowned boutiques and artisans. Busier Parksville is the area’s commercial centre, but you can still find loads of Oceanside originals at the open air Summer by the Sea street market in July and August. And not to be missed, Coombs: home of quirky shops, mountainous ice cream cones and fame obsessed goats who will stop at nothing to infiltrate your photo album.

Christmas in Qualicum Beach is a truly delightful experience. As shoppers browse the quaint little shops so beautifully decorated, illuminated hanging baskets of seasonal greenery and lighted trees adorn the streets and the sound of Christmas carols ring out from the Town Hall carillon.

Keira-Anne Mellis

“We Love Oceanside”

Having grown up on Vancouver Island, I can truly say that shopping in Parksville /Qualicum Beach is an incomparable experience! I’ve found homespun knits, savoury cheeses and even locally crafted pottery in stunning ocean colours that I’ve begun collecting. Perhaps the region’s greatest charm lies in the array of bookstores, bakeries and handmade beauty boutiques that I find to be nothing short of curiously quaint.

100-Mile Diet Food from over 70 local producers can be found at markets in Errington, Qualicum Beach, and Parksville from April to October.

Local Lifestyle

Carina Vause (Voter Selected Winner)

Reb Stevenson says…

Nothing shows you what the town of Qualicum Beach is really like the way our Family Day Parade does. Half the town comes out to watch the parade, the other half is in it! You won’t see anything flashy or high-tech in this parade, it’s full of home-made, wholesome, small town goodness. It makes your heart swell to watch it.

Don’t freak if you’ve been bitten by something out here on the West Coast – it has nothing to do with the Twilight vampire stories. Many succumb simply to our tranquil, laid-back beauty. Oceanside residents enjoy a comfortable average temperature of 14 degrees Celsius, traffic-free streets and an outdoor playground on their doorstep. Victoria, Campbell River and Vancouver are close but don’t encroach upon the small-town vibe. So feel free to join us for eternity (muahahah!).

Arts & Culture Reb Stevenson says…

It should come as no surprise that a setting as stunning as this inspires some art to be reckoned with. Perhaps you’ve heard of the Louvre. Well, allow me to introduce Oceanside’s version: The Old School House Art Centre, where you can actually watch artists in action (definitely a leg up on The Louvre – I mean, who’s seen a live Da Vinci session lately?) If even that seems too formal, self-guided studio tours allow you to drop in on some of our homebased creative luminaries. To round out your artistic immersion, we’ve got music festivals ranging from blues in a casual pub to jazz in a posh garden, not to mention amusing theatre and singing seagulls aplenty.

Dramatic Setting

Artful Tours

Jazz It Up

Catch an ECHO Players Village Theatre Spring or Fall production and Bard to Broadway shows throughout the Summer.

Follow the Oceanside Community Arts Council’s “Guide to Artists and Studios”, also known as the Blue Brochure.

Feel jazz, bluegrass, and rock come alive at music festivals in spectacular garden, country, and beach settings.

We really enjoy the TOSH Jazz Club Happy Hour on Tuesday afternoons, sipping a glass of wine while listening to old favourites with Jim Kilburn on guitar and Ron Hadley at the piano. It’s always interesting visiting the various studios where you can watch artists and artisans at work. The Grand Prix d’Art is really exciting and into its sixteenth year this summer. It’s a form of race as competing artists from Vancouver Island and Lower Mainland have a three hour time limit within which to complete a street scene from a location assigned by lottery in Qualicum Beach.

Cathy Brockman Kris Kringle Craft Fair. My daughter and I visited this event for the first time, friendly, spirited, tradition. Bard to Broadway “Glee” club – entertaining and talent filled show featuring the vocal talents of our local youths and young adults.

Hit The Links Reb Stevenson says… The air is so invigorating, the climate so mild and the people so gorgeous, you’ve probably already guessed it: Oceanside is a hotbed of year-round swinging. Golf club swinging, you ninny! We’ve got seven striking courses to stimulate the Tiger Woods in you (I’ll abstain from making another swinging joke here) and five mini-golf courses to boot. One even features a gigantic boot. And remember: you can always blame a shoddy drive on our distracting scenery.

Richmond, BC

Fairwinds Golf Club is the place for golf in the Parksville and Qualicum area! They have a 71 par course and have won an award for their environmental efforts!

Jen Burke (Voter Selected Winner) Richmond, BC ”Magic of Qualicum”

If you are looking to hit a few golf balls while in Parksville, check out brigadoongolfcourse.com They have an amazing course and some of the best green fees you’ll encounter!

“My Golf Favourites”

Pheasant Glen may have the toughest three finishing holes in BC. My other favourite is the 14th hole at Fairwinds. It’s one of the most difficult par-3’s anywhere. There’s a massive rock wall to the right of the green that makes the hole even more intimidating.

Score!

Morningstar Golf Club was named to SCORE Golf’s 2009 list of Best Canadian Public Golf Courses.

Fairwinds Golf Course is one of only eight golf courses in BC to be certified through the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program.

Many consider the executive length Arrowsmith Golf & Country Club to be one of the best drained courses for year-round golfing.

Liza Poirier (Voter Selected Winner) Comox, BC “Memories That Have Been Made With The Love Of My Life”

Being that we live in Comox we generally do not have a need for accommodation in Parksville or Qualicum Beach. We have discovered though that a “staycation” can be just as refreshing as getting away from it all. Pacific Shores has a lot to offer including free kayaks for you to go out and enjoy the water (fantastic idea).

time you’re hanging with us (just during waking hours). But we’ll still strive to impress you while your peepers are shut. We’ve got worldclass resorts, cosy B&B’s, rustic campgrounds, family-friendly beach motels and dangling tree spheres to lull you to sleep. Or make yourself at home in a long-term vacation rental. Whatever your choice, Oceanside is the stuff that dreams are made of.

Sue Gwin (Panel Selected Winner) “Parksville/Qualicum so relaxing!”

We have stayed in a few places, but I like the Riverside Resort in Qualicum. Lovely little cabins, with kitchens and fireplaces. Perfect for families or couples. Lovely little stream flows through the property. I highly recommend. 38

Get away without breaking the bank Jeff Bateman says…

Psssst! Gather round and listen closely if you’re curious about one of British Columbia’s insider secrets... there is nothing the least “off”about off-season here where sea and sky, mountain and river meet in Parksville and Qualicum Beach. As more and more enchanted visitors understand, these months are the ideal time to linger and relax here at their own chosen speed–to genuinely savour and appreciate a world-renowned portion of Vancouver Island that is happily exhaling after another busy summer of breathless activity. The roads are quiet and the holiday throngs have returned home. Reservations can be made at short notice in the finest restaurants. Settle in at a choice window seat with panoramic views or cozy up next to a fireplace. Accommodations are readily available in resorts and motels that traditionally offer discounted nightly rates and long-stay bargains. Kick off your shoes and settle in for some quality time with a partner or a good book. Tee times at local golf courses can be booked with a quick phone call. And adventure guides are happy to escort you out to sea or deep into the wilderness. Check out myPQB.ca/Specials and search our specials by location, season, category, and price.

Camping by the Ocean

My hubby and I moved to the Island last year from St. Albert, Alberta. For our first ocean camping experience, we decided to visit Rathtrevor campground. It was incredible, best camping trip we’ve ever had! There is nothing better than waking up to the sound of the ocean and lazing the day away on a sandy beach. Thanks Parksville!

Stacey Tomlinson Perfect Romance in Parksville

My husband and I stay in a cabin on the ocean. After falling asleep to the crashing of waves on the beach, we share an intimate breakfast. Then we head to the beach. We run around playing with our dog on the beach, reveling in the joy of being with each other doing whatever we feel like doing.

Dianne Pollock Time to Visit Parksville ... AGAIN!

We visited Vancouver Island 36 years ago, when we were on our ‘honeymoon’…we have decided to go back to the Island this winter with our RV and stay at an oceanfront campground at or near Parksville.

Reb Stevenson says… While venturing out in public wearing a swimsuit may be an event in itself for you, we wouldn’t want you to miss out on any of Oceanside’s big annual gatherings. We celebrate the usual holidays, but we also spice things up with some admittedly bizarre festivals. When 20,000 Black Brant Geese land on our beaches every Spring, we party. And betcha didn’t know that ice sculpture appreciation is best done with your mouth on fire.

The Parksville & Qualicum Beach region is known for over 140 annual festivals and events. Many of these events don’t post their dates far enough in advance to make this guide and there are too many to list. On page 60 you’ll find an overview of what you can expect by month. Be sure to visit our website often and get our app for full details –
