I grew up in this lovely city and even though I moved away many years ago, I still enjoy visiting as often as I can. First, check out this excellent short video on some of the highlights of this Amazing City.
Definitely worth taking a few moments to watch!
I have fond memories of growing up in Victoria and my wife and I have recently moved back to Vancouver Island after my retirement from my profession of 30 years. From riding my bike in pea soup fog, enjoying fish and chips at Fisherman’s Wharf, to the sounds of the fog horns off the island putting me to sleep at night, it truly was a wonderful place to grow up! 🙂

Victoria is The Capital City of British Columbia
My parents escaped the cold winters of Alberta moving to Victoria when I was just a little boy and thinking about it today, am I ever glad they did! 🙂 Victoria is situated on Vancouver Island in Beautiful British Columbia, Canada. The city is the Capital City of BC and is located on the most southern tip of the island.
Vancouver Island is located off the Pacific West Coast of Canada approximately 100 kilometers from the mainland and City of Vancouver. Greater Victoria has an area population of about 330,000 and continues to grow and expand each year. The reason being, it is perhaps one of the most desirable places in Canada to live.
Why you ask?
Well for starters, its natural beauty and climate are probably the two biggest reasons. The west coast and in particular the southern the tip of Vancouver Island, offer the warmest year round climate of all of Canada and breathtaking scenery to go along with it as well.

If you like golf, well you have come to the right place. Because of the warm climate, golf courses are open year round. Want to play a round on Christmas Day? Should not be a problem in this City! Of course summertime is always the most preferred time to take vacations in Canada, unless of course you partake in the endless amount of winter activities also available in the country.
To experience the absolute beauty and view the many activities Victoria BC has to offer, I suggest July, August and September as the ultimate time to visit. There are so many unique summer activities and planned events taking place at this time of year for everyone to enjoy!
The city simply comes alive, like most, in the peak summer months.
