After our BC Legislature tour on a day in late November, our chaperoned high school groups from Vancouver have one to two hours of free time in downtown Victoria.
What would be some highly recommended eateries, shops, and activities to check out? While I do appreciate the tourist sights in Victoria, I'm looking for those attractions that might have some appeal beyond the tourist audience.
For example, when we took some high school students to San Francisco, while everyone went to Fisherman's Wharf, I took the students to the Ferry Building, which contained a public market and eateries. In Vancouver, I've taken senior students to Subeez and the Vancouver Art Gallery, with positive feedback.
Suggestions? Thanks in advance.
