Other than that most of the trail is easy. Small little beach at the eastern portion of the park. Great place to launch a kayak or canoe.

A huge park with loads of different trails to hike of varying difficulty - Coastal, inland, viewpoints, mine shafts, and a small cabin to take shelter in along the coastal trail on a wet/windy day. If you've never been before, stick to the main trails as its pretty easy to get lost on all the side trails, and plan to return to the parking lot well before sunset.
We’ve fused traditional pastas with international style, from linguine mixed with Moroccan spices to bucatini combined with Asian sauces – and we believe pasta is no longer about the noodles alone.

Our warehouse-style locale merges modernism with an industrial feel, from brushed concrete floors to 17-foot ceilings, and piping to polished subway tile. It’s the place to unwind after work, savour a glass of vino with friends and celebrate a birthday with family.
Beautiful and peaceful. Being away from the sound of traffic we got to hear the beautiful sounds of birds. Saw a seal and a sea otter jumped onto a little dock. While having something to eat, we watched an eagle fly in from one tree to another than it flew low a few feet above the water as it whipped past. An unforgettable experience!

Ferris' Oyster Bar & Grill opened its doors on the 4th of February, 1991. Its original name was Ferris' Oyster and Burger Bar Restaurant.

Ferris' menu has greatly expanded and consequently, a name change seemed appropriate. Today, Ferris' Grill (as the main floor is called), features a diverse array of fine foods, ranging from burgers, to pastas & fresh seafood, and of course, oysters!

You should think of Hatley Castle, and Hatley Park National Historic Site, more as an elaborate mansion and less of a medieval castle. It is still very grand and very impressive! The entire Castle was built within 2 years and had an expensive electrical system as well! The castle also had 13 fireplaces! It has a large garden with 3 ponds to it's West side and a massive lawn to it's South. The castle was occupied and acted as an academy for the armed forces but currently serves as an administrative building for the neighboring college. These are just some of the facts and figured that you will learn if you get to chance and have the time to take part in their paid tour! It's definitely worthwhile. This site also has a huge grass lawn along with a multiple gardens that, altogether, contain 3 ponds. Ample paid parking just south of the castle. This is also a great place for weddings and formal ceremonies.

Small and cozy location. We greatly enjoyed the heritage burger (added cheese and bacon) and the delizioso chicken burger. The fries and chips are house made and I like that they'll do a half of each as your side. After 9pm daily burgers are half price, though unfortunately this appears to be their busiest time of day.
Great meal, lovely location. Amazing views of marina and beach. Market price clams and mussels were lovely and other members of the group loved the brisket breakfast and chowder. Mange smoothie great for a sweet after. Friendly staff. Would definitely recommend!

Welcome to Siam Thai Restaurant, Victoria's BEST Thai Cuisine!
Thai cuisine is light, fresh and traditionally seasoned with chilli peppers and aromatic herb, a gourmet delight for those who know and love good food. It also has a temper.

Keep in mind that most hikes start at the bottom which means the hard part is first, then it's all downhill. This hike is the opposite.

If I had a boat this is definitely a place I'd anchor for a bit of peace and tranquility. Beautiful little spot.

Craigdarroch Castle is a definitively Victorian experience. It is a shining example of a “bonanza castle” — massive houses built for entrepreneurs who became wealthy during the industrial age. In this case, the industrialist was Robert Dunsmuir, a Scottish immigrant who made his fortune from Vancouver Island coal. This legendary Victorian mansion, built between 1887 and 1890 on a hill overlooking the City of Victoria, announced to the world that Robert Dunsmuir was the richest and most important man in Western Canada. He died in 1889, leaving his entire estate to his wife Joan, who lived in the Castle until her death in 1908. The immense fortune of the Dunsmuir family is reflected in the four floors of exquisite stained glass windows, intricate woodwork and fabulous Victorian-era furnishings.
Great experience the few times I've been. The inside is beautiful, lots of gorgeous woodwork and stained glass. There's a charming pub atmosphere with live music some nights. The couple times I've been we've ordered the delicious nachos - very worthwhile. Great location along major bus routes and a very short walk from the inner harbour or downtown.

Hermann’s Jazz Club began nearly 40 years ago, on February 25, 1981, at the Bastion Inn on Government St, when German entrepreneur Hermann Nieweler [Knee-well-er] was persuaded by his friend Barry Stubbs to book Friday Harbor’s Island City Jazz Band for a weekend performance at his hotel lounge. Hermann’s love for a good party, lively music and happy patrons led to his establishment of the Dixieland Inn at the hotel. Hermann moved the club to the current View Street location in 1986 when it was renamed “Hermann’s Jazz Club”. In 2000, our 753 View St location suffered heavy damage from a fire. A testament to his commitment, Hermann rebuilt at great personal expense. Our friend Hermann passed on June 10th, 2015. From 2015 to 2019 his family faced many issues but have remained dedicated to their father's legacy. After running a successful fundraising campaign the non-profit Jazz On View Society has taken over as of July 15th 2019.

The Maritime Museum of BC opened in 1955 as a naval museum located on Signal Hill just outside the gates of the HMC Dockyard in Esquimalt. By 1965, the Museum had outgrown the original location and found a new home in the former Supreme Court building in Bastion Square − the oldest surviving courthouse in the province. In 2014, the Museum got news from the Government of British Columbia that the provincially-owned historic courthouse was in need of major repairs that require the building to be empty. The Museum has since relocated to a new public storefront location at 634 Humboldt St., where we have our exhibits, public research space, and a gift shop. The majority of our collections are now stored off-site but are still accessible through our research request program.
