We lived on Vancouver Island from 2010-2014 while going to school at UVic. While we live in the lower mainland now, we still try to visit the Island as often as we can. Victoria offers a lot of family-friendly activities and events, and the surrounding Island is beautiful. The more I see, the more I want to explore!

Explore Vancouver Island! Discover fantastic beaches, hikes, campgrounds, museums, attractions and more!

Here are the places we’ve had a chance to visit so far…
