Wondering where to start in terms of must-do activities on Vancouver Island? Never fear! I've asked all my local friends (at least, the ones that I could pin down on Facebook) to come on over and tell you what they think are the best places to go, things to do, and sights to see while you're here.
They're a pretty vocal and opinionated bunch, so I expect there will be more than a few conflicting opinions, but hey, that's all part of the fun, right?
After all, if you're a heat-seeking sun bunny like me, you're bound to disagree with one of those freaks who loves snow, ice, and barreling down a mountain on two skinny pieces of wood in the middle of January.
Oh sorry. That was rude, wasn't it? The fact is, there's room for all colours and flavours here. And no, those weren't typos. That's just how we spell in Canada.
But I digress once again.
To get a feel for what the locals love about Vancouver Island and the activities that they most enjoy doing here, just click on any of the links below the submission form.
You see that headline just down there that says, "Check Out The Locals' To-Do Lists?" Yep, that's it.
You'll be able to read their must-do activity lists and see some great photos too. Assuming they remembered to take some while they were engaged in whatever they were doing - which they should have if it was as great as they say, right?
There's even room for comments, so if you've tried any of the recommended activities, feel free to let the world know what you think.
