Victoria is the capital of British Columbia and is located on Vancouver Island. Not only is Victoria one of Canada’s prettiest cities, but it is also home to the British Columbia Parliament Buildings.
Whether you are moving to Victoria or planning to visit or vacation, there is so much to see and do in this beautiful city. For the garden enthusiast, Beacon Hill Park and Butchart Gardens are showcases of Victoria with stunning flower gardens, ponds, and exotic trees. Make it even more fun and take a horse-drawn carriage ride through Beacon Hill Park. A great time to visit is between May-Sept when the weather is mild and dry and the flowers are spectacular.
For the outdoor enthusiasts, there is cycling, diving, kayaking, rock climbing, caving, and surfing. For those who just like to relax and chill, there are beautiful beaches all around the island and great shopping at Market Square.
For wine enthusiasts, there are many wineries on the Island with exceptional wines. B.C is known as “Little California” when it comes to fine wines.
Another favourite pastime is whale watching. See them swim and play in their natural environment. Take the family and explore Fisherman’s Wharf Park, learn about aboriginal art and customs, and see the ancient totems at Thunderbird Park. And last but not least, be sure to watch the spectacular sunsets at Mount Tolmie Park.
