Millennia before Columbus and Cabot, Vancouver Island’s First Nations constructed huge cedar-plank houses and towering poles as testaments of their ancient heritage. Stand dwarfed by a grouping of these sculptures in Thunderbird Park or see ancient totems and other First Nations artifacts in an award-winning exhibit at the Royal B.C. Museum. Gain a deeper appreciation for these cultures at the First Nations interpretive walkway at the Inner Harbour.

Take a trip to the Quw’utsun Cultural and Conference Centre, located one hour from Victoria, and immerse yourself in First Nations culture. Exquisite arts and crafts by established and emerging First Nations artists are showcased in many fine galleries.

European and Asian Influences British influence was established by the Hudson’s Bay Company when they built Fort Victoria here in 1843, and you can still visit the home of one of their farm managers at Craigflower Farmhouse. To ensure British sovereignty over the new colony, the admiralty established a naval base at Esquimalt, which became the headquarters for the Royal Navy’s Pacific squadron and is still the base for Canada’s west coast naval fleet. The entrance to Esquimalt Harbour is marked by Fisgard Lighthouse, a national historic site built in 1860. You can discover what life was like aboard a Victorian man-of-war at

the Maritime Museum of B.C. or the CFB Esquimalt Naval and Military Museum. When the gold rush started in 1858, Victoria grew into a wild frontier city almost overnight. The population increased tenfold in one year as businesses sprang up to serve the needs of thousands of miners of European and Asian descent that arrived, joining the British, French-Canadian, Métis, and Hawaiians who were already here working for the Hudson’s Bay Company. The evidence of these cultural influences is everywhere in Victoria. Some of the city’s most impressive structures, the Parliament Buildings, The Fairmont Empress Hotel, and Old Customs House were built around the Inner Harbour. The Gate of Harmonious Interest is a modern addition to Canada’s oldest Chinatown, once a “Forbidden City” of mystery and intrigue where few Westerners dared enter. The architecture of St. Ann’s Academy reflects the Quebecois origins of the sisters of St. Ann who arrived in 1858

and played an important role nursing and teaching in the early days of the city.

Living History You’ll see examples of how history blends into contemporary life throughout the city: horse-drawn carriages, double-decker buses, resplendent gardens, pubs, tearooms, shops, and restored heritage buildings downtown and throughout Greater Victoria. Historic homes like Emily Carr House and Point Ellice House preserve beautiful examples of Victorian residential architecture and provide windows into the lives of early pioneer families. Prominent among those pioneers, Robert Dunsmuir became one of the richest, most powerful men in North America, building a fortune based on coal mining and transportation. He spent lavishly on Craigdarroch Castle, but his son, James, spent far more building Hatley Castle, his vast Edwardian estate in Colwood, now part of Royal Roads University.

In 2008, Victoria is joining in the province-wide celebrations marking the 150th anniversary of the establishment of the colony of British Columbia and the start of the gold rush of the Fraser River. A wonderful array of events and festivities are taking place throughout Greater Victoria all year. The Royal B.C. Museum is presenting Free Spirit: Stories of You, Me and BC, from March 13 until January 31, 2009. A major 10,000-square-foot exhibit, Free Spirit brings the history of British Columbia to life with real life stories and unprecedented displays of treasures from the past, from the province’s first printing press to a 1.6-kilogram gold nugget, Judge Matthew Begbie’s wig to Eleanor Goddard’s 100-year-old teddy bear. Other highlights of the year include the Historical Regional Fair, a multimedia educational program to increase interest and awareness in our history, May 2; the Cowichan 2008 Spirit Pole Tour, May 19 and 20; the 150th Anniversary of St. Ann’s Academy, June 5 to 8; the Victoria Tall Ships Festival, June 26 to 29; the Historical National Fair, July 7 to 14; the Victoria Heritage Festival, September 13 to 21; Firebells and Fanfare, a celebration of fire protection in Victoria, August 2; B.C. Day, featuring special B.C. 150 Year events, August 2 to 4 ; and 150 years in Golden Mountain, August 8 to 10, a celebration of the 150th anniversary of Chinatown. For more information, see page 20.

considering that Emily Carr is its unofficial patron saint. Emily Carr, one of Canada’s foremost artists and writers, was born in Victoria in 1871 and has had a tremendous influence on the development of local arts. Her work continues to gain international respect and admiration posthumously. Emily is particularly renowned for her interpretations of coastal landscapes and First Nations villages. She is also well known for her writing and her first book won the Governor General’s Award in 1941. The Art Gallery of Greater Victoria holds a substantial, permanent collection of Emily’s work, largely with First Nations themes. Emily Carr House, the artist’s birthplace and childhood home, is a museum open to the public for tours and special events.

Victoria’s cultural element has won the attention of the country and, in 2005, the city was awarded Cultural Capital of Canada status, a designation that has led to several new cultural projects that reflect the city’s history, diversity, and artistic community. As a city, Victoria loves its festivals and the community gathers for gala celebrations to honour all the things Victorians love: world beats, jazz music, ghosts, gardens, beer, wine, fine food, visual arts, literature, boats, fringe theatre — and that’s just the beginning! Check out the list of annual festival highlights on page 20 or visit www.tourismvictoria.com/events.

Soothing Spas Victoria is also gaining a reputation for its spas. While spas have been around for centuries, Victoria has given the concept a whole new angle by incorporating elements from nature into some of its most ravedabout treatments. Unwind at one of Victoria’s many spas, partaking of nature’s plenty with a sea-salt body scrub, seaweed facial, or hydrotherapy bath infused with the fragrance of Douglas firs. Try a vinotherapy pedicure that includes crushing locally harvested grapes with your toes or a massage of homegrown lavender and hot stones collected from a nearby beach.

Year-Round Entertainment Victoria’s social calendar includes an impressive line-up of touring performers and shows at several venues throughout the city. The Black Eyed Peas, Rod Stewart, Cher, Avril Lavigne, Bob Dylan, Def Leppard, Mötley Crüe, and Chris Isaak have all included a visit to Victoria on their tours. At Christmas, the city sparkles with festive spirit. With the mildest climate in Canada, Victoria rarely sees snow.

The city’s multitude of art galleries showcase the outstanding work of myriad artists and artisans who capture the splendour of living here in everything from glorious paintings, prints, and sculptures to jewellery, clothing, and folk art. Victoria’s performing arts companies offer year-round entertainment ranging from mainstream to experimental. Victoria and surrounding areas boast the highest number of artists per capita in Canada and is unofficially known as the “BoHo” capital of British Columbia.

Victoria’s traditional elegance is intermingled with a distinctively youthful energy that is especially apparent in the city’s arts and culture scene. Refined and sophisticated, bohemian and alternative – Victoria has a vibrant culture, and the pulse of the city can be felt in the theatres, art galleries, concert halls, and on indoor and outdoor stages throughout the city.

Victoria’s youthful spirit is also amply evident in its cuisine. In addition to Victoria’s longtime affection for afternoon tea, Victoria and southern Vancouver Island are developing a reputation as Canada’s Provence. Artisan cheeses, seaweed, water buffalo, poultry, produce, ciders, and wines are created and harvested by a handful of local farms and producers. You can experience Vancouver Island’s bounty in many of Victoria’s restaurants, thanks to a plethora of hip, young chefs committed to promoting local cuisine. The Saanich Peninsula, twenty minutes from downtown Victoria, and the Cowichan Valley, 45 minutes from Victoria, are gastronomic destinations that abound with opportunities to tour wineries and farms, sample an array of products, and meet the people behind the cuisine. Winery maps for self-guided tours are available, or sign up for a guided culinary adventure. If you are a beer aficionado, you’ll want to sample Victoria’s locally crafted brews, a 150-year-old tradition that continues in several pubs and microbreweries. Distillaries are a new addition to Victoria’s culinary scene and are making a promising debut.

The Christmas season still arrives with fervour, however, and residents and visitors alike are swept up into the magical spirit of the most wonderful time of the year. Lights, music, and special events fill the streets and venues of B.C.’s capital city. For more on Victoria’s Christmas events, see page 20 or visit www.tourismvictoria.com/events.

EXPLORING GREATER VICTORIA AND BEYOND

Here’s your guide to exploring Victoria’s neighbourhoods and surrounding communities.

DOWNTOWN

> See the floating homes at Fisherman’s Wharf

The spectacular Inner Harbour is the city’s most recognized scenic highlight and is home to many excellent attractions. Old Town and Market Square date back to the gold rush of the mid- to late-1800’s. Nearby, Victoria’s colourful Chinatown is the oldest in Canada. James Bay is the city’s oldest residential neighbourhood and is graced with many beautiful heritage homes along tree-lined streets and a popular weekend market. Fisherman’s Wharf features an eclectic collection of floating homes and fishing vessels and is the place to go for seafood fresh off the boat. Some of the city’s most impressive historic mansions are located in Rockland, and nearby Fairfield features a delightful shopping area at the Cook Street Village and the Moss Street Market on weekends. Beacon Hill Park is Victoria’s oldest park and offers gardens, fountains, shaded pathways, playing fields, and a century-old cricket pitch. All of these wonderful downtown areas are within easy walking distance of each other if you want to explore on your own. Maps for several self-guided walking tours are available at the Visitor Centre at the Inner Harbour. These walking tours lead you through downtown Victoria’s most scenic areas, and some are themed to highlight aspects of the city’s heritage and culture. Other downtown touring options include guided walking and cycling tours, double-decker bus tours, horse-drawn carriage tours, boat tours, pedicab tours, and coach tours. Stop in at Tourism Victoria’s Visitor Centre at the Inner Harbour for maps, information, accommodation bookings, tickets for events and activities, and more. WWW.TOURISMVICTORIA.COM

Casual/Family Dining

courtesy brentwood bay lodge & spa

West Coast or “Island” cuisine is prevalent and includes specialties such as Pacific seafood, Island-grown produce, and local cheese. Many restaurants feature Vancouver Island and B.C. wines paired with local and exotic cuisines. You can also sample the results of years of brewing experience in restaurants, as well as at micro-breweries and brewpubs where the ales are made right on the premises. In late February/early March, many restaurants participate in Dine Around and Stay in Town, a two-week culinary event featuring special menus and prices and special accommodation rates at local hotels, resorts, and bed and breakfasts. To guide you to Victoria’s best dining, check out the overview of restaurants on the following pages. For brewery, culinary, farm, and winery/cidery tours and dinner cruises, see Outdoor Activities and Tours beginning on page 45. Visit www.tourismvictoria.com/dining for more dining information.

OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES AND TOURS Exhilarating whale and wildlife watching tours get up close and personal with sea lions, seals, dolphins, porpoises, and whales in their natural habitats. These thrilling tours are always vacation highlights, especially between May and October when the approximately 80 killer whales, also called orcas, are closest to shore and sightings are almost guaranteed. Superb golf is one of the many reasons vacationers choose Victoria as a destination; there are gorgeous courses in the Victoria area and all the way up the Island to Campbell River. Kayakers can explore coastlines, bays, and inlets, and cyclists can pedal along cyclefriendly streets and multi-purpose pathways. Other great outdoor activities include boat tours, dinner cruises, freshwater and saltwater fishing, diving, nature tours, sailing, garden tours, horseback riding, surfing, windsurfing, hiking tours, and paragliding. Check out the directory below for more details. Tours are a great way to get out with a knowledgeable local guide. From air tours to winery tours, including sightseeing and walking tours, you’ll find excellent ideas in the following pages. For information and tickets, call Tourism Victoria’s Visitor Centre at the Inner Harbour at (250) 953-2033. Visit www.tourismvictoria.com/thingstodo for more information about activities and tours.

Bus companies provide service between downtown Vancouver and downtown Victoria via ferry. From Washington State, ferry options include vehicle and passenger service from Bellingham (seasonal), Port Angeles, and Anacortes and catamaran service from Seattle.
