Things to Do
Victoria’s idyllic beauty means that popular attractions like the Royal BC Museum, The Butchart Gardens, and the Parliament Buildings are usually teeming with visitors, particularly in the summer months. And while the city remains committed to accessibility, that volume can present challenges for disabled travellers. But as Victoria reimagines itself in response to COVID-19, and would-be visitors explore closer to home, that little bit of extra space provided us some much-needed room to move.
Our journey can be tough at the best of times, so breaking out of quarantine and into the tranquil luxury of the Oak Bay Beach Hotel came as sweet relief. Highlights of the lauded hotel include two excellent restaurants and a magnificent ocean-side mineral pool and hot tub, complete with food and beverage service. The views from the pool sweep across the San Juan Islands all the way to the Olympic Mountains in Washington State.
