Nanaimo is the second largest city on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. Nanaimo is also sometimes referred to as the Hub City because of its central location on Vancouver Island and due to the layout of the downtown streets which form a hub pattern.


Nanaimo is home to Petroglyph Provincial Park, where visitors can view ancient petroglyph rock carvings and runes. Newcastle Island is another provincial park in Nanaimo, and was at one time a world-famous summertime tourist destination.
