Chemainus was a stopover on our way to Whistler. So many great murals. A walking gallery of the history of the town. Have seen murals around the world however this would be the best display we have seen.

I will never get tired of seeing the Chemainus murals. What beautiful works of art. Chemainus is such a beautiful spot, and these murals are lovely to look at while exploring all the quaint shops.

Despite Chemainus revolving around that one main quaint street and the park, there are a lot of murals, in a few hidden corners too... You can wonder if you miss one.. And they depict scenes from back in the days... Quite cool.

The little town of Chemainus has many murals painted on the sides of building that depict a lot of its history. It is delightful to walk around this quaint town and soak it all in.

We had read about this town and the murals in our travelguidebook. We took the detour of the highway. We very much enjoyed the walk following the footsteps painted on the pavement.

Our second time to visit Chemainus from UK and we're still loving the murals around the town. They give an authentic feel to the town and attract many people, not to be missed
