Victoria, BC, is the capital of the province of British Columbia and located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island. The city has a range of bustling activities to choose from, and also some of the best dining and scenery in the Pacific Northwest. The weather varies significantly from season to season so you’ll want to plan your Victoria timeshare holiday accordingly, with rainy springs, comfortable summers, and moderate winters.
When you look out from your Victoria timeshare, you may notice how green and vibrant the city layout is compared to many other cities. Victoria is known as the city of flowers and you will find them all over - from the famed Butchart Gardens to Beacon Hill Park in the south overlooking the waters of Juan de Fuca Strait. To catch a glimpse of the island's ancient wilderness, Goldstream Park sits just outside the city limits and is home to salmon, waterfalls, trees, and mountains. In winter, the mountains surrounding Victoria are the perfect winter playground with downhill skiing, snowboarding, and simply lots of family fun in the snow.
Amazing Culture and Cuisine
Culturally, Victoria has more restaurants per Capita than any other Canadian city, so you can sample cuisine from around the world on every visit. When you stop by the Inner Harbor Causeway you'll see the Robert Bateman Center, a gallery showcasing dozens of paintings by the well-known wildlife artist, and along the causeway itself, art and artists of all types busking their creations to visitors. After dinner, you can attend the Victoria Symphony or catch more live music at one of the city's many annual festivals. The BC craft beer scene is a major part of the community and you can sample local brews at many bars and restaurants if you are looking for nightlife.
A Victoria timeshare is a great option for families looking to take trips to local museums to learn about the native cultures to boat tours on the Pacific to watch Orca whales swimming out at sea. There are also many Victoria-era buildings and historical sites including a castle, Craigdarroch Castle, which sits in a neighborhood of grand 19th-century homes and mansions. The area's natural beauty also makes it a great place to vacation for days in the great outdoors, hiking along mountain trails, playing at the beaches, and strolling through city gardens.
When to Visit Victoria
Quite naturally, the busiest tourism season is from June through August when summer travelers come with their families to enjoy the mild yet sunny weather. The second-busiest months for a Victoria timeshare vacation are in the spring, but the slow season from mid-fall through the winter months are a great time to find deals and winter fun.
