The wall mural art in Chemainus is beautiful. We enjoyed the cultural touch in this quaint town. Around every corner is an interesting piece of history captured in large murals for you to ponder.

This little town is like no other. Quaint, picturesque with giant installations of artwork located on walls throughout the town. Very unique and famous.. Yellow footprints are painted on the sidewalks to guide you from one mural to another. There are coffee shops and restaurants throughout, as well as artists offerings, souvenirs and good thrift stores. Plus a live performance... More

Stop in Chemainus and enjoy a walk around the townsite viewing the murals. They are very beautiful. You do not really need a map because there are steps painted into the sidewalk to follow, great idea. You can see many of them within an hour.

We checked out the murals during a 7-night stay in the town. They are huge, and don't come across in photos as much as they do in person. They may not appeal to everyone, but still is interesting The yellow-footprints lead you on a nice stroll through many different environments - downtown, a park with large trees, then an older...

Each time we went to Chemainus, we walked around our destination and wondered at the murals and the new and newer water fountains.

My wife and I were in Chemainus picking up a kayak. We had no idea that this tour of wall murals was here. Needless to say we spent the better part of an afternoon walking the tour and seeing and reading about all of the murals. It seems that these murals revived a dying timber town. Well that they did.... More

A family member mentioned the wall murals in Chemainus. You follow yellow footprints in the little town, and they lead to all sorts of wonderful murals. Worth seeing.

We were supposed to have had an hour hear on the way back from Victoria the previous day, but things didn't quite work out that way, thank goodness! We spent a good 4 hours hear and could have spent longer. It was a lovely day, and I couldn't think of a better way to have spent it. These murals and... More

Take some time to view these creative images. Chemainus set this trend decades ago and many communities have imitated the initiative. It brings colour and interest to what might otherwise be just another small town along the tourist trail. Take a little time to walk around and sample the hospitality in this charming island community.
