Victoria is the Capital City of British Columbia and has a well-earned reputation for its myriad of beautiful flower gardens, lush green shrubbery and wide variety of fantastic trees of every kind, size and shape. Canada’s ‘Garden City’ is surrounded by sparkling ocean and splendid mountain views and from May to September the downtown streets are brightened by the over-flowing baskets of flowers hanging from classic antique lampposts.
With its distinctive architecture and natural beauty Victoria is a favourite destination for tourists arriving by ferry from Port Angeles, Seattle and Bellingham and is a popular stopping point for Alaska-bound cruise ships.
The City offers an abundance of historical and tourist attractions and a full spectrum of entertainment, cinemas, theatres, pubs, clubs and international and seafood restaurants.
