Victoria vacation

by 1victoriaus

My wife and I are going to spend about four days in Victoria as part of a 7 night Vancouver/Victoria vacation package. We are staying at the Empress on Government street. What time of year is your favorite and why? We have a weekend available for Vancouver or Victoria. Which place would you prefer to spend a weekend? We don't want any on the water activities (sea sick issues) or extreme physical activities. This is going to be a relaxing, music, walking, visually stimulating, reasonably priced dining type of vacation. What are some of your suggestions along those lines? Any input is welcome. It will be our first time in this part of the world.

Summer is a good choice for Vancouver and Victoria.

I like Victoria for relaxing for a few days. We live in Vancouver and don't even take the car to Victoria most of the time. From the Empress you can spend a couple of days of easy walking. You can relax at Butchart Gardens, the Provincial museaum is across the street from the Empress. Take a tour on the double decker bus. Lots of good restaurants near the hotel. If you are going from Vancouver to Victoria or reverse take and Empress class ferry usually on the odd hour in the summer and enjoy a nice buffet. In normal weather most people don't get seasick.

Hi In 2007 we had 7 days in Vancouver, end of June into July, fantastic weather, plenty of sunlight, and a fantastic holiday. We took a day trip to Victoria, extremely nice city, we also visited the Butchart Gardens whilst in Victoria, it is out of the city and our day trip included a 2 hour vist.
We liked Victoria and an overnight stay or 2 would be max for us.

Vancouver is a fabulous city with plenty of places where you can relax such as Stanley park, the esplanade on the harbour, visit Grouse Mountain for fantastic views and the cable car ride. Visit Lynn Canyon, we used public transport to get there, free entry and we walked down to the bottom after walking across the suspension bridge. The stream and the natural vegetation were beautiful. You are welcome to view my pages, you might find something that appeals. The hotel we stayed in was great value and well located, we walked to most places.

Good Luck,
Mike

Travel Tips for Victoria

Second oldest Chinatown in North America

by tvor

Chinatown in Victoria is not very big these days but it used to be much larger 100 years ago or so. It's in the older part of the city and it's the second oldest in North America and well worth a look around. You will find interesting shops and markets and very good restaurants here as well. I was particularly interested in Fan Tan Alley.

Victoria has a few small alleys that contain or lead to shops and courtyards. Fan Tan Alley used to contain gambling houses and opium dens 100 years ago. It's bordered by Fisgard Street on one side and Pandora Street on the other and is a narrow little alley with a few funky shops in it. One has a lot of neat import items and there's also a small second hand record and music shop. There was a restaurant and a music instrument place as well.

At the Fisgard end there is a huge Chinese emporium with lots of little alcoves and one that contains a reproduction of an old Chinese gambling counter. That was interesting but mostly the items in this store were cheesy tat. Go for the other import store at the back part of Fan Tan Alley!

Victoria and the whole...

by jypsylade

Victoria and the whole surrounding area on the Island is incredible. If ever visiting British Columbia you must go to Vancouver Island. Beautiful old growth forests, ocean scenery and more! The Butchart Gardens are amazing, and must be visited.

Orca Whales in Victoria

by meteorologist1

When you are in Victoria, you will see a lot of orca whale sculptures throughout the city. This is part of the Orcas in the City project. Local artists painted these orcas. You can also find lots of orca sculptures in Vancouver as well.

Decorated Street Electrical Cabinets

by glabah

In any city anywhere, electrical cabinets on the street are fairly common. They house electrical transformers for the various low voltage loads, they contain the control equipment for traffic signals, and they are used for a wide variety of other needs.

They are so much a part of street scenery that most people don't notice them, and most of the time they really aren't that worthy of notice: they are simply street clutter, and that is it.

In Victoria, this is not necessarily the case. Here, the various electrical cabinets have been decorated as unique and one of a kind works of art. Some of them are somewhat humorous, some of them are clever, and others of them are fairly standard and expected art.

Any of these are better than the standard plain old metal enclosures seen in all the other cities in the world, and some of these are worth noticing and looking at a second time to see their detail or humor.

Canada Day Celebrations in Beacon Hill Park

by rmdw

If you're in Victoria on July 1st then head over to Beacon Hill Park for a wonderful day of celebration.

There's a bit of a story with this photo. It was taken on July 1, 2000. I took my friends, Jorge & Patty, to the festivities that day. They had recently moved from Mexico City and I wanted to show my amigos how my country celebrated its birthday.

We came upon this huge cake and learned that they would soon be cutting it up and handing out pieces for everyonet. Patty, feeling her new found Canadian pride, insisted that we wait so she could have a piece. Like good boys, we shrugged a passable "sure" and she headed off to wait in line ... a fairly long line. Jorge & I stayed near the cake, where Patty would eventually end up.

The line eventually got moving. We waited. One of the "cake servers", seeing us there, came up and offered us each a piece. I politely declined but Jorge accepted.

Just as he was about to bite into his piece of cake, some older lady, who had been in line near Patty, started screaming at us and waving her finger in a ferocious manner. "How dare you two bud into line. That's not fair!", she exclaimed. We thought about explaining to her that we had just been standing there minding out own business when cake was offered to us but mutually decided that she'd probably beat us with her cane! So us two chickens made a quick exit stage left.

Patty was killing herself laughing the entire time.
