Garden City
Many urban centers call themselves "Garden City," but thanks to its many manicured parks filled with native and exotic plants, Victoria probably deserves than moniker more than most. A trip to Victoria lets you discover a photogenic regional capital that serves as one of the safest and most livable seaside cities in the world, where restored 19th-century architecture creates a perfect balance with modern architectural gems. On the southern tip of scenic Vancouver Island, this highly walkable city of just 80,000 residents provides quick access to both water-based activities and adventures in rugged mountain terrain. With pristine nature never more than a short drive away, you can spend you Victoria vacation hiking, biking, sailing, kayaking, and whale-watching right from the city center. Add Victoria and other destinations in Canada to your travel itinerary using our Canada trip itinerary site.
