Arts, Culture & History Tours
In the tradition of nearby Comox and Courtenay, Cumberland presents newcomers with keys to the village in the form of four self-guided walking tours under the Comox Valley Heritage Experience banner.
The quartet of village walks take visitors on a Main Street time trip and three strolls through distinct historic neighbourhoods. The brochure provides richly detailed historical background and vintage images every step of the way.
Main Street - the most central and important of the tours - covers downtown, an easy itinerary that readily incorporates pauses for coffee and lunch, a little shopping and a pint o'suds at the village's favourite watering hole. Interpretive plaques provide detailed historic info at every stop. And while at it, take note of the street's benches: They're replicated coal bins cut in half.
