“Best of what Victoria offers”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Victoria is located in an amazing spot and they have done a great job of keeping the main water from accessable along a beautiful drive. There is ample parking in multiple areas should you wish to stop and stroll along the walkways or venture down onto the beach. This is some of the best that Victoria has to offer and it is only a short drive from downtown and is even walkable.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

I don't think one even gets used to the beauty of the places surrounding Vancouver. You can go on to any ferry ride and the routes go thru different islands. But it can get cold and windy, so always be prepared - even in May!

A beautiful scenic drive all along the ocean with places to stop and view points. Even a duck crossing walk. Majestic houses and rocky shores. I take visitors all the time

We drove the scene route to Butchart Garden. The outlooks were beautiful and the homes were extraordinary. Good suggestion.
