1 and 2 July 2019
Victoria has been near the top of our travel wish list so we were especially excited to see it on the horizon from the deck of our ferry. It is located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, northwest of Seattle. The city is known for its European feel and temperate climate. We had the added benefit of being here on Canada Day when the city was filled with energy and excitement.
Three nights and two full days in town was a perfect amount of time for us. We enjoyed outdoor dining along the harbor, walking the shoreline to Beacon Hill Park, shopping on Government Street, visiting Miniature World, and being immersed in the Canada Day festivities. Victoria is among the many great places to visit in Canada.
Next up, Vancouver.
