Nanaimo is a small city that can be a hub/gateway for the rest of Vancouver Island. It is easy to get to with a ferry from Horseshoe Bay just north of Vancouver.
Nanaimo has a bit of history and has a very calm and friendly downtown strip that is great to just sit and relax. There is great scenery along the harbor and at a few small islands nearby, and the locals are very friendly.
