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

to a delightful one at the grand Empress Hotel.
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

house over a million plants. Stroll through Chinatown, the oldest one

The Galloping Goose Regional Trail offers over 20 km of unpaved
