A quick ferry trip across the Strait of Georgia and you’ve arrived in beautiful Victoria, where old-world charm meets urban West Coast style. It’s a perfect weekend getaway for Vancouverites who are looking for enchanting gardens, harbour views, colourful storefronts and hip eateries in hidden alleyways.

On his recent trip to the Island. Grab a porchetta sandwich at Roast Carvery on Douglas Street – you won’t regret it. Tour the inner harbour on the Victoria Harbour Ferry. Dine at the ultra-cool Ulla Restaurant and try the elk leg with huckleberry sauce. Finally, spend the night at the lovely Magnolia Hotel & Spa conveniently located a block from the harbour.
