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.
Get out of town with these interesting Victoria side-trips: Port Renfrew (Botanical Beach Provincial Park & Sombrio Beach), Metchosin Pioneer Museum (in Metchosin) and Sooke (Fishing Charters & Tours, East Sooke Regional Park, & more). And it doesn't end there: admire the natural beauty at The Butchart Gardens, get to know the fascinating history of Inner Harbour, look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, and walk around Beacon Hill Park.

For where to stay, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, use the Victoria trip planner.

You can drive from Vancouver to Victoria in 3.5 hours. Traveling from Vancouver in July, you will find days in Victoria are slightly colder (22°C), and nights are about the same (15°C). Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Fri) so you can drive back home.
