My very favorite place to visit in Victoria is the Butchart Gardens. This is a wonderful way to experience the many beautiful flowers, trees and plants that can grow on Vancouver Island.
The Gardens is a 22-acre expanse that is absolutely breathtaking. A wander through the Gardens takes you though an immense number of plants. Orchids, roses, tulips and even butterflies are some of the highlights that can be found there.
The Gardens are open year-round and each season brings something special to offer. For example during the summer months, there are fireworks on Saturday nights at dusk.
There are also 3 restaurants on site, where one can enjoy a peaceful meal. They even have a gift store that sells seeds of some of the most beautiful plants and flowers.
Finally, as an added bonus, check the event calendar before you visit and you may catch some interesting musicians that are scheduled to perform at Butchart Gardens. More information about this grand place can be found at www.butchartgardens.com.
