Victoria, BC, Canada is a lovely & great place to visit for just a weekend or longer. If you go after Christmas up until the 12th day of Christmas Butchart Gardens normally still has their holiday lights up to view after dark. The rest of the year just visit during the day to see these beautiful gardens.
Victoria, capital of British Columbia, sits on the craggy southern end of Vancouver Island. With abundant parkland, it’s known for outdoor activities. The city's British colonial past shows in its Victorian architecture, including stately Craigdarroch Castle mansion. Butchart Gardens, with 55 acres of vivid floral displays, plus statuary, water features and a carousel, is one of many formal gardens in the city.
