My husband and I will be in Victoria mid-September for three nights (arriving Tuesday from Vancouver, leaving Friday for Seattle). We would like to rent a car for one day to drive ourselves to Butchart Gardens and do some exploring. I've read some about the West Coast Road, and would like to drive a bit of it, but I understand that it's the opposite direction from the Gardens. Is there a driving route that would incorporate some costal scenery either before or after we visit the Gardens? A route that includes an interesting lunch stop is even better. We'll be picking up the car early in the morning and returning it by 6pm.
