Vancouver Island’s “The Harbour City”, Nanaimo, B.C. is a treasure of a city on Canada’s west coast. Flanked by one of the longest shorelines in Canada and forested mountains to the west, Nanaimo is a stunningly beautiful place to live, with an abundance of outdoor activities to enjoy.
Pacific Rim Storage offers residential and commercial storage solutions in the city and appreciates the incredible community and landscape, including these three things to love about living in Nanaimo.
A Vibrant Community & Lifestyle
One of Pacific Rim Storage’s favourite things about Nanaimo is the vibrant community and lifestyle that residents enjoy. Nanaimo has a bit of a reputation for being home to friendly and welcoming people. If you’d like to have a strong sense of community and neighbours that will become lifelong friends, Nanaimo may be just the place for you.
In addition to wonderful people, Nanaimo also has something for everyone to do. There are a variety of sports, arts, and entertainment options at your fingertips, as well as a number of unique activities like whale watching, snorkeling, and touring the Harbourfront Walkway. Oh, and don’t forget the Nanaimo Bar Trail!
Life By The Water
Nanaimo is located along the east side of Vancouver Island, facing the Strait of Georgia. It is home to the Departure Bay Ferry Terminal and is surrounded by a number of beautiful lakes to the west of the city.
Life by the water makes for easy access to the mainland, as well as a number of fun and exciting water activities. Nanaimo residents enjoy fishing, scuba diving, kayaking, boating, and many more water sports and activities, just minutes from their homes. When they want to hop over to the mainland, they can enjoy a lovely ferry ride, easily accessible at the Departure Bay terminal.
Last but not least, Nanaimo offers a truly special community to call home at an affordable price point. Many British Columbians from the mainland and Albertans have relocated to Nanaimo because of the affordable real estate prices. The city also offers more space for families to grow and thrive.
