ACTIVITIES IN AREA

Right around the corner, located in the quaint James Bay village, are grocery shopping, a drug store, a book store, coffee shops, pubs (one in a haunted heritage house!), lounges with live entertainment, and restaurants. All of the city's best sights and sounds are within easy walking distance. You don't even have to walk into downtown to find designer boutiques, world class dining, luxury spas, as well as the beauty of Victoria's spectacular Inner Harbour.

Enjoy live entertainment in the Inner Harbour lit up by the Provincial Parliament buildings outlined in sparkling lights. Licensed street entertainers and buskers will keep you smiling! Summer festivals in Victoria include FolkFest, JazzFest and BluesFest. The Rattenbury designed Empress Hotel overlooks the harbour and nearby are curio shops, theatres, art galleries, the Royal BC Museum and the IMAX, all within an easy stroll from home. An Irish Pub and Scottish Pub featuring live music are at the entrance to Bastion Square where you'll also find the BC Maritime Museum. Chinatown, Market Square and the Bay Centre Mall are a few blocks further. Further along the Inner Harbour, Fisherman's wharf is a unique marine destination offering food kiosks (including the famous Barb's Fish & Chips), unique float homes and eco-tour adventures in the heart of the working harbour. Rent kayaks or paddleboards, go whale watching or take a little harbour ferry tour – pick them up at many spots along the sea-walk around the harbour.

The Victoria Clipper to Seattle, the Coho ferry to Port Angeles Washington, and several sea plane terminals are also located in the inner harbour. The Victoria Airport is only 35 minutes away by car. An hourly shuttle bus service will take you to the world famous Butchart Gardens on the scenic Saanich Peninsula.

A ten minute walk away, Beacon Hill Park has a beautiful showcase of flower gardens, a putting green, cricket pitch, tennis courts and lovely walking paths. The Beacon Hill Children's Farm is fun for grown-ups too, with peacocks, miniature horse, donkeys, pigs, llamas and charming baby goats —the twice daily goat stampede is a must see! Just beyond the park are the beautiful vistas of the snow-capped Olympic Mountains and the rugged cliffs and log-strewn beaches of Dallas Road along the Juan de Fuca Strait. Continue along the shoreline cliffs and you may see kite-boarders, wind-surfers or paragliders. The Ogden Point Breakwater is a nice way to end your shoreline walk, and you're still just a few blocks from home! Golf enthusiast? Victoria has many courses... from the spectacularly Jack Nicklaus designed Bear Mountain to two 18 hole mini-golf courses to choose from at Mattick's Farm in Cordova Bay. Victoria is extremely cyclist-friendly with many dedicated bike lanes. To venture further out-of-town or for a workout, check out the Galloping Goose network of paved cycling trails. Our home is the perfect place to settle in for your extended stay and a great location to explore and enjoy all Victoria has to offer.
