Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
A pocket-sized combination of Seattle and Vancouver, Victoria is a dash of Jolly Olde England washed with westcoast flair and we’re all for it. Situated on the southern tip of the 460-kilometer long Vancouver Island, this community of about 350,000 is a scenic float or flight over on one of the many scheduled ferry and flight services in the area. Yes, you can take a day trip here but a longer stay will yield plenty of pleasant distractions, affording you the chance to properly experience all the very best things to do in Victoria, from a visit to manicured parks and excellent brewpubs to national historic sites and, of course, a lot of eating within the best restaurants in town.
For reasons made apparent upon your arrival (and that will make you never want to leave), the town is also known as the City of Gardens. What are you waiting for? It’s time to run to Victoria!
