Tell us your favourite things to see and do in Nanaimo

The crew at the News Bulletin is already hard at work compiling our annual list of 101 Things to See and Do in Nanaimo.

Our annual magazine is still two months from hitting your doorstep, but the crew at the News Bulletin is already hard at work compiling our annual list of 101 Things to See and Do in Nanaimo.

And this year, we’re asking for our readers’ help.

We know there are far more than 101 fun and exciting things to see and do in the Harbour City – we want you to tell us your favourites.

We’d like to know readers’ thoughts on the various places and things we know are popular, or maybe someone has some interesting ideas we’ve never heard of they’re willing to share with the rest of this fine city.

To submit, just send an e-mail to with the subject line ‘101 Things’.

Include a brief description of the activity, place or event, as well as why it’s your favourite. Photo submissions are welcome (but please also include names of the people pictured).

We’ll include as many submitted entries and photos as possible in our 2012 edition of the 101 Things magazine, scheduled to hit your doorsteps in late March – just in time to plan a spring and summer full of fun things to see and do.

Get local stories you won't find anywhere else right to your inbox.
