If you live in Victoria, you know how awesome it is!
The ‘Garden City’, Victoria is beloved by all who live here. Well known for it’s abundant parkland and outdoor activities, the city has a dynamic, thriving economy and vibrant arts and culture scene.
Victoria, BC’s capital, lies right by the coast at the southern tip of Vancouver Island with a population of approx 94,000, making it the 2nd largest municipality on the Island after Saanich. Popular neighbourhoods in Victoria include James Bay, Downtown, VicWest, Hillside/Quadra, Fernwood, Rockland, & Oak Bay to name a few.
Victoria is home to many beautiful parks including Beacon Hill Park, the magical Butchart Gardens, with 55 acres of vivid floral displays, plus statuary, water features and a carousel, is one of many formal gardens in the city. The city is also home to the thriving University of Victoria (UVic), the island’s largest university, and just recently was voted Canada Best Small City.
‘City of Newly Weds and Nearly Deads’, is it really though? We say, it depends who you ask…
