Victoria!

After spending a short amount of time in Victoria this weekend I thought I would put together a little "Exciting things to do in Victoria" list....here it goes.

Butchart Gardens - 800 Benvenuto Avenue, Brentwood Bay

This National Historic Site of Canada, owned by the Butchart family for over 100 years, offers 55 acres of world famous floral displays. I can recall seeing a spectacular fireworks show (best I've ever seen) which usually display every Saturday night during the summer (last one is August 30th)

Bastion Square Market is in the heart of downtown Victoria and is a must see for any tourist. It goes from May to October. It is open Wed-Sun and all holidays from 10:30am-5:30pm.. You can also see local entertainers. Much of the square has been restored and boasts many heritage buildings, cobblestone walkways, and wrought iron lampstands. Walking through the square you will find a variety of artisans peddling their art and crafts, and the Maritime Museum and much more

Inner Harbour - take walk along the harbour and see the Parliament Building and the Fairmont Empress Hotel. It is gorgeous during the day but even better at night with all the lights!

Recently I experienced the most delicious sushi I've had in awhile at Azuma Sushi on Yates St. The service was quick, pleasant and the rice was perfectly cooked!

Check out Victoria!
