Exploring Victoria, British Columbia

Sightseeing
Easy walking trail around a very picturesque lake close to the city, but with that out-of-the-city feel. Be sure to pack a lunch as there are many nice picnic spots along the way! Swimming and a sandy beach in summer time. Lake is much warmer than the ocean!

Awesome, awesome, awesome. Completed in 1890 by Island coal baron, Robert Dunsmuir (see his Wikipedia page for an intriguing read), Craigdarroch Castle is a must see if you are into history, architecture, and things of that nature. Afterwards, stroll down some of the nearby side streets for a look at some stunning Victorian and Edwardian era mansions.

We can't say enough about this place. Fantastic, especially in winter, as it's a nice little getaway from the rain and grey skies. Tropical plants, flamingos, and hundreds of butterflies, what more could one ask for?

Victoria's urban beach. Sandy, spacious, and full of folks of all ages on a hot summer day. Slap on some sunscreen!

If you like cemeteries, you're in for a treat. Ross Bay Cemetery, established in the late 1800's, is the final resting place for many notable and interesting individuals including Emily Carr (artist), the Rogers family (chocolatier), and victims of the SS Princess Sophia which has been referred to as the "Titanic of the West Coast". Nature lovers take note, this is a hang out spot for many local deer (loved by some, loathed by others, especially gardeners), so keep an eye out. :)
