Victoria has always been one of my most favorite places to visit. IT’s a picture perfect city with our parlement buildings overlooking the inner harbour, and a diverse collection of tourists and street entertainers linning the streets and walkways.

The downtown core is full of amazing shopping and great places to eat and enjoy the evening. The hotels are full of character and the people are warm and welcoming. Victoria gives you a small town feel even though you’re in a city.

Victoria residents have done a great job preserving the environment around the city, both on land and in the water. A trip to Victoria wouldn’t be complete without getting to know some of the true locals, whether that be through a whale watching tour or spending time in the trees at a local park.

If you’re interested in planning your own family adventure in Victoria be sure to start with Tourism Victoria. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and will help you make the most of every single day!
