Traveling with your family and kids to Parksville can be a vacation that you are never going to forget. It is mostly frequented by travelers from Vancouver and is definitely a beautiful destination. The town has to offer family-friendly activities that can re-energize people of all ages. When you are in Parksville, here are some activities that you can enjoy.
- Ocean kayaking
I greatly enjoyed kayaking with my family. This can prove to be a great workout for your kids. The best thing about this was that we got to see ocean creatures like sea lions up close. Take guided tours for an awesome experience.
Caving isn’t for everyone a lot of people tend to feel claustrophobic by it. However, going underground with your shining headlamp to check out hundred-year-old formations is incredibly cool. Drive from Parksville to Horne Lakes to have a family tour that you are never going to forget. Keep in mind that you have to make reservations.
- Visit Coombs
Have fun at the Old Country Market at Coombs. Don’t miss out the amazing ice-parlor serving mouth-watering ice-creams. In the bustling market, you will find goodies from different parts of the world. I got some souvenirs from here. Try out the jalapeno cheese bread, it is a killer. There are some gift shops, too.
- Walk on Rathtrevor Beach
Stroll around the Rathtrevor Provincial Park while the tide is out. My kids had so much fun here. There are activities like crab racing, sandcastle-building, and kite-flying activities to take part in. You will be able to spend a perfect day at the beach. Grab a chair and watch water washing the shore.
- Enjoy Milner Garden
This garden on Qualicum Beach will take you around woodland forest which alters into a great English Garden. There are trails where you can take a walk with your child and view is just beautiful.
