When in Victoria, make a side trip to see Goldstream Provincial Park in Langford, approximately Langford away. And it doesn't end there: make a trip to The Butchart Gardens, visit Fisherman's Wharf, look for all kinds of wild species at Victoria Butterfly Gardens, and get to know the fascinating history of Inner Harbour.

For photos, reviews, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Victoria attractions planning app.
