We stayed in a wonderful little palce called, Chemainus. We stumbled upon it while running an errand for our niece. We passed a sign on the highway about the murals there, so, when we were done with our errand, we decided to go back and see what it was all about.
We checked into the Best Western there. It is fairly new and well appointed. There was a lovely whirlpool and swimming pool as well. That facility is the only one of its kind in the town, so the locals pay to use it as well.
We checked with reception to see what might be of interest in the town for us, and of course to inquire about the murals. The receptionist, brought out a map, which showed all of the murals as being numbered. The next day we decided to walk around and check things out. We were pleasantly surprised to find that all the little shops were boutique style, and there was everything from a candy store, christmas store, ice cream parlor, and a barber shop that offered shave with a straight razor. They had a nice amphitheatre, with entertainment going on, a great little museum, all about their town and area's history. The murals were fabulous! They were done by many different artists. We spent most of the day wandering around and taking in this beautiful little place. We walked back to the hotel, and got ready for dinner.
We had purchased tickets before we left that morning for the dinner theatre that came highly recommended by the receptionist at the hotel. Well, what a great experience! The food was fabulous, and so was the play.
I would recommend taking in all the sights in this little town. For some people who might be interested. They also have a beautiful golf course. We don't golf, but it looked very nice. I don't think there is one thing that I could say bad about this town. I would give it a five star rating!
