“Nanaimo's Wildplay & Dinghy Dock pub are so much fun!”
Reviewed 6 August 2008

We have had a ton of company visiting us lately and have been getting to be a tourist in our home town while showing off all the great hot spots.

We took friends to TreeGo at Wildplay and had so much fun. 2.5 hours of fun and a great workout for only $40.00 - so affordable for so much entertainment. Even if you don't participate in one of the activities, the gardens and patio are a great place to hang out. Many people brought their own picnic or the burgers from the Adreneline cafe are awesome.

We've also just been to the Dinghy Dock pub to try their new menu and see the updated decor. What a cool atmosphere - not to mention the view of the harbour, the city lights and Mt. Benson. WOW. Great service, really good food and an amazing view. Our visitors were super impressed!

We also visited the Bastion and participated in the Cannon Firing that happens at 12 Noon through out the summer - so cool!

We found this little place called CoCo Locos - she makes the most delicious smoothies in every flavour you can think of and all organic. For $10.00 we got a large smoothie and a huge wrap. What a deal!

Not sure what we'll try next - perhaps hiking around Newcastle Island or hitting the farmers' markets.

“Loved the Harbour”
Reviewed 15 May 2003

The harbour is beautiful. There is a harbour tour which was excellent and full of history of the islands nearby and the city itself. Would go back in a minute.-Toronto
