Victoria, the capital of British Columbia, is an international tourist destination. It is the 14th largest urban area in Canada with a population of approximately 330,000 residents. Imbued with scenic beauty and rich heritage, Victoria is often referred to as the Garden City.
Victoria enjoys a sub-Mediterranean climate with mild winters and warm summers. The rain shadow effect is the reason for the less rainfall and dry sunshine in Victoria. It is blessed with greenery throughout the year because of the mild climate.

The town site of Victoria was developed in 1852 by James Douglas. It developed into a hub of trade and commerce. Today, the main occupations are tourism, technology and government administration.

Overall Guide : Victoria has been the centre of tourist attraction for its museums, beaches, adventures, etc. It offers various delightful attractions in arts, entertainment and outdoor activities. The Beacon Hill Park with its exquisite gardens, exotic species of animals and playing areas is... more a charming attraction. It also hosts the Luminara Community Lantern Festival. In the heart of Victoria lies the Fairmont Empress Hotel. Famous as a tourist stop, it reflects the grandeur and heritage of this city. The Butchart Gardens is another wonder which attracts over a million tourists a year. It gives a breath-taking display of flowering plants coupled with entertainment and lighting arrangements. Victoria also has noteworthy museums which explore its history and rich culture. The Royal British Columbia Museum is one such beautiful museum which captures the imagination of tourists.

Overall Guide : Most beautfiful magic place. Victoria, once a Brittish Colony, still exudes it's Brittish flare with elegance and gardens. Victoria is a beautiful small city located on Vancouver Island off the Coast of Brittish Columbia Main land. You can access Victoria... more by Air from Vancouver or Seattle, or by Ferry from either place. I highly recomend visiting Victoria and Vancouver Island. Drive North to Tofino to go whale watching. On your drive, be sure to stop at Cathedral Grove, an ancient magical Redwood Forest. In Tofino, you can walk Long Beach, go surfing, or do a whale watching excursion. Vancouver Island is magical, you will leave wishing you had stayed longer.
Not to be missed Cathedral Grove , Empress Hotel , Tofino
