Peace, quiet and community life reign in this pretty seaside village, a repeat winner in the Canada-wide Communities In Bloom competition. Main streets are lined with restaurants, hanging flower baskets, unique independent retail outlets and friendly townsfolk. A lively cultural scene is based out of The Old School House Arts Centre with its performance space, educational studios and galleries. Seawall walks, beachcombing and rambles through an old-growth forest not far from the town centre are on everyone’s daily to-do list. The songbirds cheerily greet visitors to Milner Gardens, a stately oceanfront property rated as one of Canada’s top public gardens. After an evening meal, enjoy a show at the Village Theatre, home in the fall and winter to the ECHO Players theatre troupe and, during the summer, the Bard to Broadway Theatre Society. For the big-picture perspective, book a tandem skydiving jump with experienced instructors based at the Qualicum Beach Airport.
