Richmond, Victoria, BC, Vancouver
With the mildest climate in Canada, flowers bloom and the grass stays a lush green in Victoria year-round. It is often the talking point for residents who like to point out that they go out for afternoon strolls through grassy parks while the rest of Canada is shivering in bitter cold during the winter months. Draped around the southern tip of Vancouver Island, Victoria has tied to both land and sea with the rugged natural beauty of the Pacific coast never far away. Easily explored by foot, a visit to Victoria in winter is relaxing and rejuvenating. Take advantage of the diverse historical, architectural and cultural mix that comes with the oldest city in the Pacific Northwest.
