It is worth calling into Chemainus which is a quaint restored historic town just to visit the murals. Stop for coffee or lunch then take a strool to view the murals.

Stop by the visitors centre & pick up the mural guide. It is $3 & supports the centre. We traveled around the small town looking at all the murals. They have footprints painted on the sidewalk & roads to lead you to the various murals. It was a great way to explore this small & older town. People are friendly... More

Mural's scattered about several blocks in sleepy little twon, Chemainus. Parking lots and street parking available. Good choices for places to shop for souvenirs or to sit down on a patio for a coffee. I found it best to take a tour and get a history of each mural.

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...
