"Definitely one of the nicest museums I have been in. Superb displays that are very well thought out. Just enough information, without causing brain overload. Loved the first people's section. Loved the Mayan displays. The artifacts are truly impressive".

Opulent Parliament Buildings
"Amazing. I didn’t even know you could tour this building. We were walking by just admiring the architecture on the outside and one of the security staff asked if we wanted to see inside. All totally free. It’s a really amazing building and I’m glad we got this opportunity. It’s worth a visit."

Large Urban Garden & Pond Retreat
"We stayed near beacon Hill park and walked through almost every day while in Victoria. The flowers were out, the ducks were out, and the peacocks were entertaining. I'm always impressed by the forethought of city planners to have a beautiful area like this in the middle of a city".

Beautiful Views, Busking, & Vendors
"Beautiful, peaceful place to spend some time, especially on a warm, sunny day! A few very tasty restaurants, check out the multi colored-float homes, possibly see the local harbor seals looking for a snack plus the absolute best place in the city to buy live Atlantic lobster and live local Dungeness crab right off the Hi-Gear boat on the wharf. Best prices around and SO tasty !!"

Historical Victorian Mansion
"What an absolutely amazing historical site. The self guided tour is very worth it and the volunteers that are inside are very knowledgeable about the place. On a clear and Sunny day you can see the water all the way from the highest tower. This castle is a real treat."
