With some terrific day trip options available in the surrounding area, having your own car makes good sense. Without one, it’d be much more difficult to soak up everything that Courtenay, 35 miles away, has to offer. Among the first stops you make here should be Crown Isle Resort and Golf Community, Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park and UB Diving. Powell River is another wonderful option. It’s 35 miles away and boasts an array of interesting things to do. Powell River Recreation Complex, Powell River Putters Mini Golf and Powell River Historical Museum and Archives are just the start.
