Outstanding Outdoor Sites

Port Alberni, located on Vancouver Island, is encircled by majestic mountains. Along with gazing at the eye-catching scenery, you can hike through the Alberni Valley on the many trails running through the wooded, lakeside forestland. Head to Victoria Quay, about a five-minute drive from Valley Vision Optometry, to picnic in the waterfront park. Be sure to gaze upwards at the two Welcome Figures that rise above the entranceway; the local Hupacasath First Nation carved these colossal columns. You can also watch black bears safely from this site across the river from the Somass Estuary.

Port Alberni Harbour Quay offers a picturesque area to browse and shop in boutiques, view art galleries, and enjoy a bite from local eateries. Visit on Saturday mornings to experience the lively Spirit Square Farmer’s Market. Another glorious waterfront park is at Canal Beach, at the south end of Port Alberni, BC. The lovely panoramic harbour backdrop will wow your sense of vision!

Local Heritage & History

Our optometry team encourages you to visit the Alberni Valley Museum, one of the best community museums on Vancouver Island. See a variety of intriguing First Nation displays alongside a fascinating collection of vintage items. Next, you should hop aboard the Alberni Pacific Railway steam train and journey to the historic McLean Mill, the only commercial steam-powered sawmill in Canada.

Fresh & Flavorful Food

Just around the corner from our eye care center is the Yellow River Restaurant, a great all-you-can-eat, casual place to satisfy your craving for Chinese food. Another restaurant that’s almost next door is the Harvest Restaurant, with a diverse menu of comfort foods. In the mood for Italian? Drive about three minutes down Redford Street and up 6th Avenue to La Bruschetta Bistro, where you’ll be delighted by the savory dishes.
