Take a walk along Victoria's most famous scenic walk. Follow the walkway beside the ocean from Cattle point all the way to the Breakwater. There are many beach access points along the way, you'll walk past Mile Zero and in spring, summer or fall you'll likely get a look at any number of cruise ships in port.

Great family outing, especially if it's a rainy day. Check to see if there are any special exhibits on while you're in town. Don't miss out on the IMAX either, super fun experience. Sometimes they play feature films as well as the documentaries.

Small local grocery store with local products, a short drive or 20 minute walk away. Their claim to fame though is their amazing sandwich bar. Build your own sandwich, wrap or bun. Much fresher than Subway with a great price. They also have tables outside to eat at or it's a great grab and go option.

This grocery store is a little further away but it is my all time favourite store for produce. It has an amazing selection and great prices. They try to source produce that's as local as possible but they also bring in products you don't see every day from around the world.

A Victoria original that has evolved over the years. There are multiple locations but the spot on Douglas is great if you're going to be hanging out downtown. The name says it all, lots of great Asian noodle dishes or go with rice. Eat in or take out.

Best fried chicken I've ever had. It's Korean style so there are a few different flavours to try. A full order feeds my husband and I for dinner. The sides are great too. You can eat it but it's a good take out option too.
