Victoria to Campbell River - Stops

Will be doing the drive and looking for a nice place for quick lunch - nothing too expensive - preferably on water...also looking for a good place en route to stop for BC wine shopping??

We get in late in the afternoon and have over 4 hour drive from airport...we would like to get to destination as quickly as possible...I assume that means Hwy 19 and NOT 19A?? Does it add much on the trip to take 19A?? As much as we don't want to miss nice scenery, we need to get to our destination for an event that night. Thanks.

I'd say 19A can add as much as an hour..especially if there's summer traffic. Your first stretch out of Victoria and over the Malahat will be scenic..you can always look at coming back along 19A..assuming you're returning the car to Victoria airport.

Ok. Hwy 19 it is. Now we have to find a good place on Hwy 19 to pick up groceries and wine for our condo. Thanks for all the info!

There's a couple big malls/ grocery stores/ liquor store on hwy 19 just near Nanaimo. . I'd start a new post asking specifically about groceries as Bucaneer Dave and others will have tons of info.
