Victoria is a popular tourism destination and so has much to do and see. The Butchart Gardens, whale watching and kyaking are among the most popular attractions, but the city is also rich with cultural events, parks and shorelines with fascinating sealife to explore. It is well connected to Vancouver by Victoria International Airport, but also by bus, ferry, seaplane or helicopter. There are also regular ferries to the Gulf and San Juan Islands, Port Angeles on the Olympic Penninsula WA, as well as regular boat trips to Seattle. The city is surrounded by small farms, forrest, mountains and the sea – a convenient stopping point when heading to the wild surfing beaches near Tofino or to hike the West Coast Trail. The climate is moderate – a long, warm and dry summer/fall with a mild winter and early spring with much less rain than other areas of the Pacific Northwest. Fall and winter are perfect for long walks – watch eagles snatch spawning salmon from streams, sea otters play on docks and piers, and seals watch you curriously from just off shore.
