Within the borders of the Comox Valley Regional District [PDF - 940 KB], there is unlimited possibility for things to do.  Whether it's skiing on Mount Washington, walking the shores of Goose Spit, playing a round on one of the seven golf courses, working out in one of the recreational complexes, hiking the trails in Seal Bay or Nymph Falls park, or enjoying the diverse downtown areas of Courtenay, Comox and Cumberland, the Comox Valley offers something for everyone.

The Sid Williams Theatre showcases music, drama, and comedy; the art gallery presents painting, photography and sculpture; the docks in Comox offer up fresh-caught seafood, and the old Japanese and Chinese cemeteries and townsites in Cumberland bring back a world of history. 

And if you're a “foodie”, there's no better place: the Comox Valley farmers' market brings the best from the area's rich agricultural resources: cheese, chocolate, fresh fruit and vegetables, homemade pasta, salsa, sauces and soups, breads and baking, free range eggs and a wide variety of locally-raised meat, including bison, lamb, beef and chicken. 

And if you'd rather someone else do the cooking, the diversity of restaurants will give your tastebuds a workout: Thai, Japanese, Indian, Chinese, Mexican, Italian, and – because of the bounty of food close at hand - local!”
