Why Victoria?

For a perfect day filled with old world charm, you can't do much better than sightseeing in Victoria. This lovely city is filled with stately buildings, which make perfect subjects for photographers, as well as a grand waterfront area. There are so many fun things to do in Victoria it's hard to narrow down which Victoria attractions to choose.

If you're a nature lover, you might enjoy Beacon Hill Park, with its wild peacocks, manicured gardens, petting zoo, and a view across the bay. Spend a relaxing day picnicking in the grass or watch a concert in the band shell. If you want to get even closer to nature, try the Garry Oak meadow habitat. It includes a rare wild example of the environment that used to reign, unspoiled, across this part of the country.

Love architecture and fantastic old buildings? You're in for a treat. Your list of Victoria Things to Do will definitely include exploring Craigdarroch Castle, the 1845 St. Anne's Schoolhouse, and the 1925 Crystal Gardens, which was originally built to house a salt water swimming pool. You can roam the streets all day, just taking in the ambiance and admiring the incredible designs.

Music lovers from around the world make a point of visiting Victoria during the BC Day holiday. The Victoria symphony hosts Symphony Splash, a waterfront concert featuring the symphony seated on a barge in Victoria's Inner Harbor. The event culminates in a spectacular evening concert featuring the 1812 Overture complete with cannons, a carillon, and a fireworks display. Is your taste in music more modern? That same weekend, Victoria is host to the Electronic Music Festival, with DJs from around the world showing off their skills.
