I’ve only ever visited Victoria in the summer but all 3 times it has been absolutely charming. It’s a very walkable and pleasant city. I loved strolling the scenic inner harbor and waterfront.

Beautiful city with such kind people. Though it’s a small city, it’s packed with tons of activities! Don’t be afraid to talk to locals they will always recommend the best things! If you’re ever in the area, please go to the Old Spaghetti Factory. Oh, and don’t forget the poutine!

This is one of our favorite cities in Canada. It is just the right size, has terrific weather and very friendly residents. It almost has a European vibe to it.
