Victoria

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.
Escape the urban bustle at Scenic Marine Route and Zipline. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at The Raptors and Sooke Potholes Provincial Park. Get out of town with these interesting Victoria side-trips: Sooke (Marshall-Inman Gallery, Dolphin & Whale Watching, &more) and Botanical Beach Provincial Park (in Port Renfrew). And it doesn't end there: go for a walk through The Butchart Gardens, admire the striking features of Craigdarroch Castle, trek along West Coast Trail, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Inner Harbour.

Find out how to plan Victoria trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.
