Many travel to Victoria from all over to witness the stunning floral displays at Butchart Gardens. Victoria is the perfect balance between big city and outdoor living; with shopping centers, high-end accommodation, and restaurants, Victoria gives a similar feeling to its neighbour across the Strait of Georgia, Vancouver. Drive 15 minutes from town, and you are surrounded by beautiful forests and trails that are waiting to be explored.

Victoria has a rich history that is visible in and around the city through the beautiful heritage architecture. Many of Victoria's homes hold the cities heritage. Take a drive around different neighborhoods and witness the beautiful homes for yourself. You can take a tour of the Parliament building, cross the street to the Royal BC Museum, experience the IMAX Theatre, or visit one of the many festivals. With downtown surrounded by water in nearly any direction, Victoria is a truly unique city.

For anyone who prefers to bike, Victoria is the cycling capital of Canada due to its extensive bike networks around the city. So if you have always wanted to bike to work, with the great climate and vast bike-friendly streets and trails, Victoria is the place to do it.

Getting to Victoria

In the mid-1800s, Victoria became the gateway to the mainland for gold miners worldwide. To this day, Victoria ports still connect them to international markets. The Swartz Bay Ferry terminal, located only 30 minutes north of Victoria, is a heavily trafficked network from Victoria to the mainland and surrounding gulf island. With multiple ferries running daily, it is exceptionally convenient for people to use.

If you prefer to travel by air than land or sea, then you are in luck! Victoria International Airport has direct flights to Vancouver, Calgary, Kelowna, Prince George, and other destinations. Victoria Harbour Airport terminal offers quick and easy flights via floatplane! Victoria’s location provides for an ideal way of life and acts as a fantastic service and transportation hub for Vancouver Island.

Victoria Weather

Victoria enjoys a sub-Mediterranean-like climate and experiences consistent offshore breezes perfect for hot summer days. This means Victoria has warm, dry summers and mildly cool, rainy winters. Victoria receives annual precipitation of 583 mm, which is substantially lower than the Vancouver Islands' average of 1850 mm. Victoria averages only 260 mm on snow annually, which is nearly half of what Vancouver receives. The rain Victoria does receive during the winter sets the stage for beautiful plant growth throughout the spring and summer.

These long warm summers are perfect for barbeque season! Create your backyard sanctuary and host your friends and family on the back patio, long into the clear summer nights. Furthermore. Victoria’s mild weather is ideal for anyone who loves to be outdoors year-round. Victoria residents take advantage of all this beautiful weather by hanging out on the beaches, swimming in the local rivers or lakes, and of course, enjoying their favourite beverages on one of the many patio restaurants throughout the city.

Victoria Culture

The Victoria region has been home to bands of the First Nations People long before European settlement. These peoples can be separated into Songhees, Sooke First Nations, and Saanich, who spoke different dialects of the Lekwungaynung or North Strait Salish language. Beacon Hill Park is a popular landmark in Victoria, yet its history is not commonly known. Beacon Hill was once the site of a prehistoric village and is very sacred to the Lekwungen People. The park encompasses multiple known and believed sites, such as the burial ground at the park's southeast.

In the mid-1800s, gold was discovered in the Fraser River on the mainland, and Victoria became the gateway to the mainland for gold miners worldwide. Before the gold rush, Victoria had a tiny population of roughly 500 people, but only two months after news got out about gold, over 30,000 people made their way through Victoria!

Believe it or not, into the late nineteenth century Victoria was the largest city in BC until Vancouver emerged as the largest city and became the major port for British Columbia’s west coast. Although, to this day, Victoria’s British heritage can be seen through the beautiful heritage homes, architecture, historic sites, and energetic downtown. There are many ways you can experience Victoria’s history and culture. Take a guided tour of Victoria’s Parliament Building and visit the huge Royal BC Museum, which will keep the whole family entertained. The BC Museum also has exhibits that highlight the region’s First Nations people.

Victoria Real Estate Market

Victoria is one of the most desirable cities in the country. With excellent weather, plenty of amenities, and natural beauty everywhere one looks, it’s an ideal place to call home for young professionals, retirees, those starting a family, and more. The attractiveness of Victoria is reflected in the high cost of real estate in the area. While slightly more affordable than Vancouver, real estate in Victoria can be prohibitive for first-time buyers.

Downtown Victoria has seen a boom in new high-rise condos recently, which offer the convenience of living in an urban centre and proximity to the excellent artistic, culinary, and historical attractions that the city has to offer. Many of these new condo units are relatively small in size, balanced out by the walkability and excellent atmosphere of the area, making it a great place to be out and about.

One prestigious area of Victoria is Fairfield, located in the most southern part of the city. It provides the ocean and mountain views that Victoria is known for and offers residents the convenience of living near downtown while maintaining a quaint, old-fashioned charm. Many of the available properties in Fairfield are large single-family homes that are a hundred years old or more, located on quiet, tree-lined streets. Fairfield offers quintessential Victoria living on the waterfront, right next to beautiful Beacon Hill Park. 

View Royal is technically a town and offers affordable options for real estate investors who don’t mind being slightly outside of the city itself. View Royal is twenty minutes from Victoria by car and easily accessible by bike on the convenient Galloping Goose Trail—a popular commuting route. View Royal is home to reasonably new affordable condos and townhomes, although it also features large ocean-front properties. 

Finally, Hillside Quadra is a centrally located neighbourhood a little north of downtown Victoria. Blanchard, Bay, and Cook Streets offer easy access to the surrounding areas by car. In Hillside Quadra, you’ll find relatively affordable single-family homes built in the ‘50s and ‘60s. These homes are typically two or three bedrooms and have commonly undergone renovations, making them excellent options for young families. Character homes in Hillside Quadra that date back to the early 20th century offer ambitious real estate investors unique opportunities.
