About Living in Nanaimo, British Columbia


Driving is usually the favoured approach to get around in Nanaimo. Parking is easy, and most real estate listings are a reasonably short car ride from the nearest highway, such as Nanaimo Parkway. On the other hand, the public transit service in Nanaimo is not very frequent. Nonetheless, the city is linked by around 20 bus lines, and bus stops are not very far away from most houses. Nanaimo is not very suitable for those who travel by foot because meeting day-to-day needs is at times challenging by walking.


Daycares and primary schools are convenient to reach on foot from any location in this city. However, there are only a few high schools and therefore they can be a long walk away. As far as food is concerned, reaching one of about 30 grocery stores by walking is possible for some, but not all, house buyers in Nanaimo. A small number of restaurants and cafes are available as well.


The character of Nanaimo is exemplified by its relaxed environment. There are over 300 parks nearby for residents to visit, such as West Marsh Park and Linley Valley Park, which makes it easy to get to them. This city is quiet overall, as the streets are usually calm.
