How to spend a fall day in Victoria, BC.
1. SHOP LOCAL ALONG LOWER JOHNSON
This little shopping haven of downtown Victoria is known for its colourful facades and boutiques full of local goods and beautifully curated clothing, home wares, art, and gifts. Pop into Market Square and check out the eateries and do some vintage shopping.
2. COZY UP WITH A HOT DRINK AND A GOOD BOOK AT ONE OF VICTORIA’S MANY CAFES
Spend a morning browsing the unique selection of books at Russell Books on Fort Street. Pick the perfect book and bring it to one of the many nearby cafes. The perfect activity for a rainy day. Your tummy and your mind will thank us.
3. ESCAPE TO NATURE AT GOLDSTREAM PARK
Located just outside of the city, Goldstream Provincial Park is our favourite place in Greater Victoria to escape for a walk in the woods. Rain or shine, this park is a sight to see with its forest of massive evergreens, winding river, and striking waterfalls.
4. TAKE A TRIP BACK IN TIME AT CRAIGDARROCH CASTLE
Craigdarroch Castle is an exquisitely restored mansion that was originally built by the coal baron Robert Dunsmuir. Stepping inside is like stepping back in time, giving visitors a peek into privileged life in the 1890s.
5. TAKE A WALK IN BEACON HILL PARK
Explore over 200 acres of beautiful gardens, charming duck ponds, shoreline trails, playgrounds, and the lovely Beacon Hill Children’s Farm. It’s a must visit for locals and visitors alike.
With winter soon approaching, Now is the time to take advantage of the little time left in fall. Here are a few of the must do activities for all true Victorians and visitors alike.
