Expedia is out with their list of the top ten places to visit in Canada.

The website is calling Nanaimo a slice of harbourfront heaven.

The reasons, it says, have a little something to do with the thriving arts district and bounty of heritage buildings, and a lot to do with the lively waterfront district, scuba diving and swimming lagoon, loads of restaurants and bars along the shore and the short ferry ride to Canada s only floating pub.

Tofino is also on Expedia’s list of places to visit.

With the Canadian dollar where it is, according to Trivago, more Canadians are opting to vacation in Canada and Nanaimo came in second for being one of the best value cities.

Trip Advisor is also giving Nanaimo top marks saying a visit to the Harbour City will be a one-of-a-kind experience.
