Overview

Victoria is the capital of British Columbia, and it lives up to all expectations. While you're there, you should make a trip to the Inner Harbor which abounds with quaint shops and street performers.

Interesting for tourists. Some of the exhibits are rather poor (the animal ones namely), but others are stunningly wonderful. Don't miss the Native display upstairs.

A nice crescent walk along the waterside, dropped below the level of the street and chock-full of people peddling their wares. There's everything from hot dog stands to singers and musicians and clowns down there.
