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.
Attractions like Royal BC Museum and Miniature World make great kid-friendly stops. Visit Inner Harbour and British Columbia Parliament Buildings for their historical value. And it doesn't end there: get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, explore the historical opulence of Craigdarroch Castle, stop by Russell Books, and take in the exciting artwork at Alcheringa Gallery.

Make your Victoria itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

Vancouver to Victoria is an approximately 3.5-hour car ride. When traveling from Vancouver in June, plan for a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Victoria: temperatures range from 20°C by day to 13°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Mon) so you can drive to Tofino.
