As a former British colony, Victoria retains stately mansions and picturesque gardens perfect for walking and gazing. Its mild climate and location on the southern end of Vancouver Island also make it an excellent location for outdoor activities, too: Take a kayak tour of Victoria Harbour, or walk a half mile over the sea on the Ogden Point Breakwater. For excellent traditional fish-and-chips on the docks, try the aptly named Red Fish Blue Fish.
