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 Victoria Butterfly Gardens. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Beacon Hill Park and Craigdarroch Castle. Venture out of the city with trips to Sidney (Tanners Books & Mary Winspear Centre), Salt Spring Saturday Market (in Ganges) and Everything Old Canada (in Saanichton). The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at Royal BC Museum, look for all kinds of wild species at East Sooke Regional Park, paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour, and stop by Mattick's Farm.

For maps, other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, you can read our Victoria road trip planning app .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Vancouver International Airport and Victoria International Airport. In May in Victoria, expect temperatures between 60°F during the day and 50°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
