Travel to Canada (B.C.): Tofino
The Long Beach Unit of the Pacific Rim National Park occupies most of the coast between Ucluelet and Tofino and displaces most economic development to Ucluelet or, especially, Tofino. You have to squint past the scones and lattes to see the fishing community that was Tofino in 1950.
With the mountains of Strathcona Park in the background, the view here is east over Tofino Inlet, which wraps the east side of the peninsula.

Tofino has long been a fishing port.
Fisherman's Wharf at Tofino, with Tofino Inlet in the background.
There's a government wharf at Tofino, too, a public facility at the foot of First Street. The large building overlooking it is a restaurant, indicative of the shift toward tourism.
With the rise of recreation, the older residential stock of Tofino has acquired a quaint look.
The new economy calls for new subdivisions, such as this one.
The real residential money is going into waterfront homes like these, on Chesterman Beach.
