Girls Trip Victoria Brittish Columbia

Planning a girls trip Sept. 2013 to Victoria Brittish columbia. We are staying near the Inner harbor. Does anyone know the best places to shop, eat, fun things to do? Also are there any day trips to some scenic places that wouldn't be too hard to find? I thought about renting a car and going to Pacific Rim National park but maybe that is too far away? Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

The drive from Victoria up to Pacific Rim is about 5 hours one way, so that's an overnight trip.

I'd suggest you have a look at these for a start:

I highly recommend spending a wee bit of time reading about Victoria on the Frommer's online guide book :)


You could spend all your time in the 3 pubs that this company operates!

You might try afternoon tea. The Empress Hotel, although referred to by some visitors as the "Gold Standard" in this respect, is very expensive and there are other options, such as the White Heather or even Butchart Gardens, if you are going out there to view the Gardens. Here is a thread from last year which mentions some of the alternative and different views -

Hope you are not looking for a 'Wild and Crazy" nightlife. Victoria is pretty sleepy....

Well as for nightlife, that depends on your ages and tastes,, my stepdaughter regularily drags her butt home at 3 am,, thinking shes found some nighlife downtown... lol There are a few clubs for the younger drinker partier set, its definately more sedate for the over 25 crowd though, mostly people do dinners out, then hit a pub for a few rounds.

A nice place for the over 25 s is Swans, or Bard and Banker when they have live music.
