WHERE TO STAY AND PLAY IN COWICHAN WITH KIDS

Dreaming about a quick family getaway this Spring, but don’t want to worry about passports or flying?

Between Victoria and Nanaimo, the Cowichan Region enjoys Canada’s warmest mean temperature, making it the perfect destination for a family vacation throughout the calendar year.

Cowichan is full of kid friendly attractions that will be sure to leave a lasting impression on the whole family. The views from the top of the top of the Malahat Skywalk are pretty spectacular but we know its all about the 20 metre spiral slide coming down. Don’t worry, adults welcome. Book you next visit here. All aboard! Ride historic trains over the Somenos Lake Trestle. Relax and enjoy views of the 100-acre museum! Visitors to the BC Forest Discovery Centre will experience educational exhibits, and a whole lot of fun. Re-opens in mid- April! Book your next visit here.

At the end of the day, know that you can rest comfortably in Cowichan. Check out hotels, lodges, campgrounds, and unique stays.
