PARKSVILLE, BC, July 7 /CNW/ - More than 37 years after Anne Murray sang
Snowbird, the phenomenon of flying away from the cold shows no sign of waning.
On Vancouver Island, the Parksville-Qualicum Beach region, commonly
referred to as "Oceanside", is gaining the reputation as Canada's long-stay
With the country's mildest climate and low annual rainfall, along with
19 km of sandy beaches, it has been called the Canadian Riviera. There are no
currency, language or cultural adjustments to make either.
A nest for every species
The region has 33 resorts, hotels and motels, nearly 30 bed and
breakfasts, and 32 vacation rental homes to choose from. There are also
time-shares and condos for sale.
