Great small town on the west coast of BC. A little paradise cut off by the ferries, but great hiking, biking and rock climbing. If you want to get out on the water, or underwater, this is the place.

A wonderful, inexpensive town to retire in and a nice place to raise a family.

Lots to do for outdoor types and a lot of artists. Come on up and visit.

big town/small city in british columbia/canada. considered one of the biggest party scenes in percentage to most places in canada. most underage drugs/drinking. many drug dealers. has a part of town where if u walk in the forest, you will see marijuana plants everywhere you look. many cases of abuse, neglection, many children forced to go to drugs or alchohol to survive the pain and neglection. hard place to grow up.

A British Columbian town 5 hours north of Vancouver, a trip which must include a ferry or plane. Enjoy dirt beaches at the local lakes, marvel at the number of shitty oversized pickup trucks, and savour seafood fresh out the sea- although you'll have to look hard for it, since the locals don't like seafood. Also, don't eat any shellfish because most of the local beaches are contaminated with untreated sewage waste.

Culture vultures will enjoy the charming night-time entertainment at the local watering hole the "Zoo", a surely captivating experience.

Tip #1: When a local says that Powell River is a world class destination, agree with him, even though there's a good chance he's never left the province or even been to Vancouver before.

Tip #2: When a local proudly tells you that "zunga" is a locally coined word, smile and nod like you know wtf they are talking about.

Tip #3: Make sure your hotel bookings can be cancelled, because if it starts raining (like it does 80% of the time) you will have SFA to do.
