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 Inner Harbour and Dolphin & Whale Watching. Visit Craigdarroch Castle and Chinese Cemetery for their historical value. Step out of Victoria with an excursion to East Sooke Regional Park in Sooke--about 46 minutes away. The adventure continues: go for a walk through The Butchart Gardens, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Andrew's Cathedral, contemplate the long history of Hatley Park National Historic Site, and indulge your taste buds at Glenwood Meats.
