Comox is one of several seaside communities in the Comox Valley but it is the only one that offers what it does. For starters it has a great marina located about two blocks from the main street. Also located just off the main street and very close to the central part of the town is a scenic 9-hole golf course. A variety of small shops are located along the downtown core along with a recently updated mall that has a very competitive food store that was also recently updated. Professional services are also located near the central part of the town. Perhaps most impressive is the small town feel that is both welcoming and charming. Of course, the views of the ocean and mountains are pretty spectacular as well.
Over the past few years new construction in the town has continued at a fairly rapid pace. Comox offers a number of established neighbourhoods to families such as Foxxwood Heights, Beckton Estates and Lancaster Heights.
