Whether you’re new to Victoria or returning for another visit, you’ll never run out of amazing places to see or things to do.  Victoria is known the world over as the City of Gardens and for the flora enthusiast it is a paradise of splendor 365 days a year.

And the city is so much more.  A visit to Victoria would not be complete without a stroll in the Inner Harbour to view the fabulous Empress Hotel, take in the Royal BC Museum or explore eclectic Fisherman’s Wharf just a short distance away.  Locals and visitors alike love shopping along Government Street and getting “lost” in the quaint side streets of downtown like Bastion Square or Fan Tan Alley and Victoria’s Chinatown, the oldest in Canada.

Venturing a bit further out, you’ll discover some of the most amazing beaches and coastlines in the world.  Whether you’re looking for a whale watching excursion or an eco-tour of the inlets and coastal areas accessible only by boat, a day on the water will never disappoint – no matter the weather.  And of course, there’s The Butchart Gardens which has been welcoming visitors for over 100 years.
