Garden City

Many urban centers call themselves "Garden City," but thanks to its many manicured parks filled with native and exotic plants, Victoria probably deserves than moniker more than most.

There's still lots to do: stroll the grounds of Ross Bay Cemetery, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Andrew's Cathedral, take in the waterfront at Victoria Pier, and explore the historical opulence of Hatley Castle.
