More About The City

About Victoria, BC

Victoria, the capital city of British Columbia, is located on the southernmost tip of Vancouver Island, halfway between Seattle and the city of Vancouver. Founded as a Hudson's Bay Company fort in 1843, the city was named in honor of Queen Victoria. Much of Victoria's British-influenced charm remains, thanks to an abundance of old Victorian homes, cricket fields and pubs. The tradition of afternoon tea is still alive and well in Victoria, although the city is anything but stodgy. It's a food city, with hip bistros on every corner, and some of the West Coast's most innovative cuisine. In fact, Victoria boasts the second highest number of restaurants per capita in North America (San Francisco is #1). Victorians are passionate about their city, and many cite the excellent climate as the reason. Mild year-round temperatures allow residents to get out and hike, kayak and picnic in the parks, harbours and gardens that surround them.
Victoria, BC Factoid
The University of Victoria campus is attractive especially Finnerty Gardens and Mystic Vale and attracts plenty of wildlife including deer, owls, squirrels and even cougars now and then. But perhaps its most endearing residents are the rabbits. The campus has become well-known for its large population of domestic rabbits, which are probably the offspring of abandoned house pets. The furry little critters get ample food and even names from students and staff, and Victoria's mild climate has proven to be quite agreeable to them. So hop on over and have a look!
