As soon as the weather warms up al fresco dining spots blossom on the sidewalks of old town Victoria. Above is what Milestones Restaurant looked like this Easter weekend - probably the prime location in the city as they are right on the Inner Harbour Causeway.
Situated on the far west coast of Canada, on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, Victoria is the capital city of the Province of British Columbia. Its benign climate (the warmest winters in Canada) and placid lifestyle make it a favorite retirement location as well as a popular tourist destination. About 400,000 people live in Victoria and adjacent communities. Click the photos to see them larger!
