The Parksville and Qualicum Beach region is a first choice for long-weekend getaways on Canada’s west coast – temptingly close to home for nearly 3 million residents in the Pacific Northwest yet just far enough away to rate as a bona fide holiday destination.
Those 72-hour weekends stack up fast as spring begins its slow, delicious shift towards summer. Easter, Mother’s Day, Victoria Day and Memorial Day are all primetime for visitors here. Yet this four-week window still rates as a “shoulder season” – meaning that accommodations are cheaper than they will be when school’s out and the crowds arrive.
The happy result: A few more dollars in your pocket to spend on a memorable evening on the town.
Milner Gardens begins its seven-day per week schedule at the start of May and the estate’s rhodos are at their most glorious. Our golf courses are rounding into putt-perfect shape. And with the ocean breezes growing warmer, our legendary beaches start attracting the year’s first shorts-wearing celebrants.
Some carry cell phones, all the better to call envious family and friends in other parts of Canada still feeling the last sting of winter.
