Things to Do

There’s something for everyone here.  Victoria’s unique in North America for it’s combination of urban culture and natural surroundings.

Culture

A relatively small city on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, Victoria is the seat of the Provincial Government and boasts not one, but two universities.  As a result, Victoria’s urban core has a thriving arts and cultural scene that matches cities you’d expect to be much bigger.

Hip restaurants, cafés and shopping areas in the downtown area complete the urban experience, but never so far from a park or the water that you’d forget you’re very close to one of the most beautiful and pristine landscapes in the Pacific Northwest.

Visit Tourism Victoria for a complete picture of what we’ve got going on in the city.

Nature

If urban culture’s not your scene, you’re in for a treat.  Within 15 minutes drive of the downtown core, you can find yourself lost in a network of regional parks. 15 minutes further, and you can be communing with nature at some of the Pacific North Wests most beautiful temperate rain forests.  One ting is for sure:  if you’re in to nature, bring your hiking boots because there’s lots to see around Victoria.
