This is our first trip to Victoria so we spent yesterday afternoon strolling along the Inner Harbour. The view of the water and the surrounding buildings are spectacular! We loved watching the seaplanes taking off and landing. The Empress Hotel is beautiful inside and out. Many wonderful places to eat all along the waterfront.

It really is one of the "must do's" in Victoria. Besides being beautiful, it is home to many great buskers, shops and awesome things like magicians! Have fun with family and friends! Heck, can even just watch the boats and seaplanes come in and out too!

One of my fondest memories as a kid was walking the harbor in Victoria. There is so much happening. Everytime I go back I make sure I walk around and check out the scenery, the entertainment. Lots of busking, and cool things to see. Check it out!

...to get a feeling of the history of the city. The two main iconic buildings are next to the inner harbor: The Empress hotel and the parliament building - both worth seeing, day and night! Besides of that, there is a lot going on in the inner harbor: Seaplanes, Whale watching tours, all kinds of stuff... What is also nice... More

We enjoyed the Busker's Festival - didn't really know what a busker was before this, and now we are glad we were there for it! Also loved the market and used the opportunity to buy a few unique gifts. The restaurants around it were fun and the good was good, and we loved just strolling there during the day.

The Inner Harbour area is a great place to spend some time. Many large and historic buildings, The Empress Hotel, the Parliament Buildings and the old Steamship Terminal, all surround the Inner Harbour. A very wide boardwalk/walkway is along the water front and lots of activities and shopping are centered on this level. We saw several buskers and mimes and... More
