The capital city of British Columbia, Victoria is home to historic Buildings, great shopping and some of the best museums in Western Canada. Established in 1843 as a fort for the Hudson’s Bay Trading Company, you can still see many British legacies such as double-decker buses, horse drawn carriages, and original Buildings. Though rich in history, Victoria is now a busy city with entertainment and a wide range of street festivals & activities. Even today, you can go to the iconic Bay Mall for some of the best shopping on the island! While for those nature lovers, there is also a beautiful walk along the water front that allows for the most amazing natural views in Victoria.
