Although the Oceanside area is well known for being a retirement destination, the things not so obvious are how amazing of a place Qualicum Beach is to raise a family. There are countless activities and programs for youth like the local Track Meet I attended yesterday. These are in addition to the amazing outdoor amenities the area offers that area conveniently located right around town so kids can walk or bike to them before they are able to drive. More and more families are moving back to the area, choosing lifestyle, a reasonable cost of living and having free time over the city hustle that many have grown accustomed to. School is almost out for summer so if you are thinking of a move, come for a vacation and see the area at its best.
