In typical Maloney fashion, he says there are great restaurants downtown....Chris also says the Butchart Gardens are a must...some great museums...the harbors...and some great wineries...

Adding to Mike's list:
Chinatown -Canada's oldest
Capilano Suspension Bridge
Craigdarroch (sp?) Castle & Museum
Butchart Gardens is amazing
Great whale watching from Victoria
Lots of float planes landing and taking off from the harbour downtown
A beautiful city!
The Empress Hotel - I think it's a National Historic Site
The whole inner harbour area, Empress Hotel, Parliament Buildings is a great walking and sightseeing area

Rodger and Fiona are from that area too, (Black MBG roadster) who was trying to auction off his USA speeding ticket at the banquet last year ;)

Drew will have fun up there!

In Victoria there Science World, pretty neat place to visit.
