Advice for Visitors to Canada

Victoria Vacations

Lovely Victoria is located roughly 75 km from Vancouver across the Strait of Georgia. It is a quaint little town resplendent with elaborate rose gardens. This “little bit of England” on the North American Continent is probably the only place in the world where you can head out in the morning to watch a pod of killer whales and head back into town in time for afternoon tea! And if afternoon tea is your thing, treat yourself to a delightful one at the grand Empress Hotel.

Craigdarroch CastleThings to do
If golf is your game, be sure and spend a day at the Victoria Golf Courses. If you love gardens, Butchart Gardens is the ideal spot for you to while a way an afternoon and if you stay into the evening you may be delightfully entertained musically. These botanical gardens house over a million plants. Stroll through Chinatown, the oldest one in Canada. Victoria vacations should include a day at Inner Harbor, a patch of waterfront with lots of stores, restaurants and interesting sights to keep you busy. Board a ferry for a harbor tour! For the romantics out there, don’t miss a tour of Craigdarroch Castle.

Walk about
The Galloping Goose Regional Trail offers over 20 km of unpaved trails for biking or hiking or even just a leisurely stroll.

Rainy Days
On rainy days you may want to head indoors and visit the Royal British Columbia Museum. For a lark, stop in at the Royal London Wax Museum with its collection of wax statues of American and British celebrities.

Don’t forget to buy life insurance and enjoy a carefree trip to Victoria.
