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.
Royal BC Museum and Cowichan Bay Maritime Centre will appeal to museum buffs. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to The Raptors and Shawnigan Lake Museum. Change things up with a short trip to Salt Spring Island Cheese Company in Salt Spring Island (about 1h 30 min away). And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at Robert Bateman Centre, trek along Scenic Marine Route, stop by Russell Books, and make a trip to Government Street.

For reviews, photos, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Victoria travel route planner .

Surrey to Victoria is an approximately 2.5-hour combination of train and flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight; or take a bus. In March, daily temperatures in Victoria can reach 11°C, while at night they dip to 6°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
