Interesting & unique trip

My husband and I will be leaving Seattle for Vancouver Island on July 1, 2013 and are considering taking the ferry and renting a car in VI. We will take the ferry to Vancouver City on 7/3 and then the Amtrak back to Seattle on 7/10. We will joining friends for the Vancouver City portion of the trip. Questions: Other than Victoria, what are other must see/do attractions on VI? We are into hiking, driving, good food and prefer sites that are less crowded. What area in VC would you recommend for a group of 8 friends (no children) to stay? Interested in restaurants, walking and exploring the city. Should we rent a car to visit the surrounding areas of VC?

I look forward to your feedback!

There are a couple of short hikes near Victoria that will give the quintessential VI experience.

Whitty's Lagoon will reveal rain forest, a waterfall, a tidal lagoon, and sand beach, all within a 20 minute walk. Tod Inlet will take you past a deep forest ravine, and out to a small bay with forested mountain slopes surrounding. Google CRD Parks
