Goats on the Roof?! – Since 1973, Coombs Old Country Market has been delighting guests with a wide selection of fresh local produce, a scratch bakery, mouth-watering delicatessen and gifts from the farthest reaches of the world. What has truly made the market famous however are the goats that are airlifted each spring to live and thrive on the market roof.
Cathedral Grove – Off of Highway #4 on the way to Ucluelet is Cathedral Grove MacMillan Provincial Park. Laden in forest sounds and smells of the west coast forests, the park offers a network of short rainforest wilderness walking trails weaving in amongst moss covered fallen trees covered in blankets of ferns. Cathedral Grove Park is an excellent way to experience the lush world of nature and the many mini eco-systems that exist within a rainforest.
Longing for Long Beach – Set in the famed Pacific Rim National Park, the awe-inspiring Long Beach offers miles and miles of pristine white sand and a heart stopping view. Summer on Long Beach is the ideal time for surfing, photography, hiking, or simply kicking back and watching the waves crash on the shore.
