Victoria, B.C. - Visit the City of Gardens

The well-mannered city of Victoria is British Columbia’s Garden City. Enjoying a year-round mild climate washed in by the Pacific Ocean, and snuggled up against the Coastal Mountains, this city named for a queen offers a unique blend of metropolitan attractions and natural wonders. Staying in Victoria condo rentals gives you and your group the chance to experience everything from a royal High Tea Service at the Empress Hotel to white-water rafting down a rushing mountain river.

Smell the Blossoms

Situated at the southern tip of Vancouver Island on Canada’s West Coast, Victoria consistently makes the list of one of the most livable cities in Canada and the world. It is pretty, clean, safe and home to some of the loveliest gardens anywhere. If you plan a Victoria home rental, you can visit the stunning Butchart Gardens, which cover more than 50 acres of land with breathtaking flowers and plants blossoming all year long.

The people of Victoria are also avid gardeners who take advantage of the favourable climate to dig, plant and prune in their own yards. Every February, Victoria holds a Flower Count, when citizens welcome spring by counting each and every flower in the city. In 2011, the number came in at more than 260,000,000!

Shop Locally at the Victoria Farmers Market

A vacation in Victoria puts you in the heart of the North American push to eat and shop locally. With the beautiful climate, there are lots of fresh fruits and vegetables grown all around the area, not to mention an abundance of locally caught fish and shellfish.

At a Victoria farmers market you can shop or just browse. The Moss St. Market is a wonderful open market where you can sample freshly made foods. Live bands also perform here, and fun activities are available for the children. Pick up the fixings for an organic lunch or dinner, put together in the private kitchen of your Victoria condo rental.

Enjoy the Beauty of Victoria Beaches, Right in the City

Vancouver Island is home to some of the best beaches in all of Canada. Tofino Beach, on the west coast of the island, is widely considered the most beautiful in the country. However, you don’t have to venture outside the city to find great Victoria beaches perfect for swimming, splashing or long romantic walks on the shore. There are more than a dozen beaches immediately around the city. Willow Beach is a popular sandy beach for swimmers and sun-seekers. Artists and photographers flock to the beach at Island View Park. The most popular of Victoria beaches is China Beach, just outside the city. A short hike through the forest reveals an incredible secluded beach right on the Pacific Ocean.

A Victoria home rental is an ideal choice for a family vacation or a romantic escape for two. It offers a comfortable home base in a charming city, with plenty of access to some of the most beautiful landscapes in the country.
