Victoria area is also home to some of the country’s most exhilarating scenery: there’s an ocean or mountain (or both!) vista around every corner, and the city’s flower gardens are famous the world over.
Whether your taste runs to golfing, hiking, biking and fishing, or you’re more the shopping, dining and theatre type, Victoria has you covered. And bring the kids – the city was included in the Top 10 Family Vacations in Canada in TripAdvisor’s 2011 Travelers’ Choice awards.
Established in 1843 as a fort for the Hudson’s Bay Company, Victoria’s British ancestry is apparent in the double-decker buses, horse-drawn carriages, formal gardens and tearooms. The city is now a cosmopolitan centre with a lively entertainment scene and a wonderful array of attractions.
