North Island Lanes

Bowling in Port Hardy

With old-school bowling alleys tumbling like knocked-over pins across BC, this immaculately preserved six-lane hangout is a must-see even if you don't want to play. The yellow-painted walls and retro-cool backlights make it like a living 1970s museum. But rather than being a mothballed old exhibit, it's also one of the friendliest and liveliest evening hangouts in town.

It's especially lively on Fridays and Saturdays when 'cosmic bowling' takes over.
