How to Get to Victoria, BC:
Last weekend, Clipper Vacations invited us to visit Victoria, BC! We live in Seattle and frequently drive up to Vancouver but have yet to visit Victoria, so we were excited for the opportunity! From Pier 69 in Seattle, we boarded the Clipper at 8am on Saturday and docked at Victoria in 2.5 hours.
The Butchart Gardens:
I’ll have a full blog post for The Butchart Gardens soon! It’s totally worth a visit. The weather was gorgeous, the air was so fragrant and the blooms were stunning, and the entire atmosphere was surreally peaceful… I Snapchatted a million flowers that day!
Where to Stay:
We stayed at the Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe Hotel Resort & Spa in a beautiful waterfront room. The hotel is conveniently located near the pier and downtown, so we were able to walk everywhere.
Exploring Downtown Victoria, BC:
The following day, we walked around Victoria’s quaint and cute downtown. I recommend checking out Jam Cafe for brunch and Hey Happy for coffee, and then just strolling around the boutiques in the neighborhood. Wander over to the historic Chinatown, and visit the famously narrow Fan Tan Alley and have afternoon tea at the darling Venus Sophia.
Departing Victoria, BC:
A big thank you to Clipper Vacations for a fun weekend trip!
