There is a little bit of everything when it comes to the best places to visit in Victoria BC, which stands for British Columbia. It reminds me of a vacation to London because of all the royal buildings and other historical buildings. Are you ready to explore the top attractions in Victoria? Some of the best places to visit are even free, which saves you money on your travels.
For example, you can visit the British Columbia Parliament buildings, and the tour is free. Of course, that doesn’t mean that it’s not one of the top attractions. It is an excellent example of the beautiful architecture, and there are many history lessons to be learned when visiting the Parliament buildings in British Columbia. There is also a harbor taxi ferry trip that you can take when you want to visit this attraction.
It was mentioned that I think Victoria British Columbia seems a lot like a voyage to London, England, and so the next attraction I want to mention is Craigdarroch Castle. When is the last time you went to a castle? This castle is from the Victorian era, which is perfect for an attraction in Victoria. For your next stop, visit the Empress Hotel, which is another historic building, not a place you can find lodging of course.
Continue revisiting history at the Royal British Columbia Museum, which has a Wooly Mammoth and other great permanent exhibits. While visiting all the historical sites is a highlight of vacationing in Victoria, there are other things to do as well, like go to Beacon Hill Park and enjoy the Scenic Marine Route. You get the ocean of course, and you also get to take in the mountains when you take the Scenic Marine Route.
One thing that attraction and the historical attractions have in common is the fact that they are great for pictures. If you want something else to remember the trip by, then there is a gift shop as well for souvenirs at the museum mentioned earlier. That’s one thing you can count on with a great museum, and you can imagine there are going to be many unique finds in the gift shop.
The Inner Harbor is another great attraction, and it’s ranked #2 on one top travel review site. You can take in everything located at the Inner Harbor, which includes the Empress Hotel mentioned earlier. However, this harbor features many more things to do and is a cultural experience that you don’t want to miss.
Vacationing in Victoria is a trip you won’t forget. Other things to do there include Fisherman’s Wharf, Miniature World, Victoria Pier, and Christ Church Cathedral. You might be thinking that you’re also going to be told to visit the zoo. Well, in Victoria, there is something a little different, and it’s called a Bug Zoo. You’ll find that the list of places to visit continues when you show up in person in British Columbia.
