Victoria, BC, Canada
British Columbia's capital city, Victoria, is located on the southernmost tip of spectacular Vancouver Island, just a short Helijet, floatplane, catamaran or commercial flight from BC's lower mainland region, Metro Vancouver, and Washington State. You can also reach this delightful, cosmopolitan island destination via car, coach, ferry, international flight, or even as part of an incredible whale watching adventure from downtown Vancouver with the Prince of Whales.
Victoria is known for its old-world charm, decidedly British flavour, world-class hotels, decadent dining, wine, seafood, and some of the best microbreweries on the west coast. The Great Canadian Beer Festival in early September attracts beer lovers from as far away as Australia and England. Other highlights include; unique European-style architecture, antique shopping, art galleries, great outdoor adventure travel, second highest number of restaurants per capita in North America and gardens, gardens, gardens!
Victoria is also home to the Royal BC Museum, one of the foremost cultural institutions in the world. Housing British Columbia's provincial museum and archives, the RBCM also offers a state-of-the-art IMAX Theatre, is host to ever-changing exhibits of interest and the Royal BC Museum and BC Archives website is a great resource.
