I've been to Victoria twice, and I don't think I would ever tire of visiting this beautiful, inner harbour. Particularly around Labour Day weekend, the Classic Boat show, touring boats from all over showcasing their handy works. Artists and musicians to entertain, stop for lunch and a drink nearby. Close proximitiy to the beautiful Empress Hotel and the Iconic British... More

It's great both in the day time and at night here. You get lovely views over the water and you can see the parliament buildings from here too. It's pretty at night as every where is lit up. There's restaurants along here and a Starbucks too so you can grab a coffee and sit on one of the benches by... More

Having the fantastic view of the harbour was people Reflect for my husband to dream and relax. You will learn to love seagulls and the four o'clock ferry horn to Port Angeles. Visit the wharf and see the harbour seals and the floating houses.

One of my favourite places to visit when I'm in Victoria! Lots to see and do. Very beautiful to just sit and chill and enjoy the scenery! Always something happening! Great tourist attractions and restaurants in the area! I have sailed in and walked in! Parking is a bit expensive compared to Manitoba but not drastically higher!

Always a good place to visit, especially when the sun is out and the buskers are in full action! Wander around enjoy the smell of the sea and the view of the Empress and the Legislative Buildings and grab an ice cream cone at the same time!!

Park your car and get out and walk!! There is so much to see and do in such a small area. Enjoy the fresh ocean air and take it all in. Lots of great places to eat as well

It's beautiful, specially during spring season. Go for a walk along the harbour is a great experience, and you can learn a bit about BC and Canada's history, which is told through some boards and signs along the harbour.

This is a nice harbour right in the heart of the city. Great place for an afternoon stroll and great for people watching. Can see the famous Empress and the provincial government buildings from here.

The inner harbour in Victoria is a rare treat in a city - you can rent boats, take a tugboat ferry to other ports of call in the harbour, leave for a whale watching tour, or catch a float plane. Protected from alot of the wind, we sometimes have, there is a walkway around the harbour, where you can see... More

Be sure to see the amazing works of art for sale by the First Nations people. Many great souvenirs here-authentic and made by local artisans here in Canada.
