“Always a great walkabout”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Great place to stroll, people watch, boat watch, plane watch. Stunning on a nice weather day. Everyone's favourite spot. Make sure you visit at night to see the legislative buildings lit up - quite spectacular. It doesn't cost a cent!

“Day or night great to walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Victoria is small, and easy to walk around, beautiful lights, great little stores and lots of places to stop and have a bite or drink.

“Pretty harbour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Didn't have enough time to really explore. Nice views though. Was pretty at night. The Parliament building was interesting to see after dark. Lots of lights around the harbour.

“A Charming Circus of Activity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Whenever we visit Victoria, we plan multiple big blocks of time just hanging out around the Inner Harbor. Walking the paths. Shopping for art from the outdoor vendors. Watching the continuous parade of Water Taxis and Sea Planes, Ferries and Whale Watching boats, visitors and locals. Whenever possible we like to book a room with a harbor view, and eat at a harbor view restaurant, preferably at an outdoor table. And our transportation of choice is the zippy little Water Taxis.
