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 some historical perspective at Craigdarroch Castle and Emily Carr House. Explore Victoria's surroundings by going to Sooke (French Beach Provincial Park & East Sooke Regional Park). And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Beacon Hill Park, admire the landmark architecture of Empress Hotel National Historic Site of Canada, admire the natural beauty at Abkhazi Garden, and see the interesting displays at Royal BC Museum.

To see maps, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Victoria sightseeing planner .

Toronto to Victoria is an approximately 8-hour flight. You can also fly; or do a combination of flight and bus. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time to Pacific Standard Time is minus 3 hours. In February, Victoria is a bit warmer than Toronto - with highs of 9°C and lows of 5°C. On the 16th (Fri), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
