    We spent about 2 hours going through the gardens. We had a terrific time even though it decided to rain all day. The gardens had free umbrellas to loan out. The Sunken Gardens is amazing to view ... pictures of it on web sites don't begin to express the amazing beauty you see there.

    Everything you would want for a day of pleasure is here. Indigenous vendors are here. Museums & restaurants are here. Excursions can be booked from here. This is Victoria's tourist hub. Take a walk and breathe in the colour of the city.

    This is an amazing one hour hike with awesome views inspiring views of the coastline. The trail is well marked with plenty of benches for resting, sitting and picnics

    We never miss a visit to Beacon Hill park when we are in Victoria. It’s a great place to walk about and also encounter peacocks, ducks, owls and lots of squirrels.

    Spring time is beautiful with all of the flowers and trees blossoming.

    You can connect to the beach and walk and explore for some time if you want.

    So many things to see and look at. Decent price to get in, took about two hours to walk around and see everything. Lots of history, beautiful photo display during my time there.

    11/10, our guide Nikolai was easily the most enthusiastic and informed person I have ever met about their specialist field. The caves were beautiful, definitely one of the highlights of our holiday.

    Stroll around the grounds, take in a spontaneous performance, stay for lunch, arrange a tour. I love hanging out on the lawn when there is a protest taking place. You are right on the Inner Harbour so there is all kinds of interesting traffic; planes, boats, buses, horse drawn carriages. Keep your eyes peeled for all the interesting buildings, some strange, some institutional, interesting materials. Take in the sights of the site.

    There is ample parking at Craigdarroch Castle, and it's free. The house is enormous, very nicely restored, and the rooms are presented with furniture that was likely used in that period. Great way to spend a few hours, not too far from downtown Vancouver.

    Beautiful beach. Great to walk when the tides out. Eagle souring adds a great dimension to the environment. Be aware of the tide schedule as it is a large change.

    Long Beach is famous for its long stretches of sandy beaches, dramatic shoreline, and powerful surf. It's a popular spot for surfing, beachcombing, and taking in beautiful sunsets. Visitors can stroll along the sandy shores, watch the crashing waves, and enjoy the coastal scenery.

    Interesting little venue with quirky little houseboats, some good food venues, scenic spot and a couple of nice shops. Just stake out a table and let your folks roam! Nice park next to it, for those restless little legs!
