Explore BC cities
This year, see Kelowna, Metro Vancouver, and Victoria in a whole new light.
Spring—especially this spring—is a magical time to visit BC’s most popular urban centres. Jackets are shed, umbrellas furled, sidewalks lively with patios and foot traffic. But no matter how busy and bustling the city, nature is never far away—and it’s all in bloom right now.
If it’s been a while since you’ve visited one of the famous display gardens in Vancouver or Victoria, make this the year you do. One of the most charming is “The Garden that Love Built,” the Abkhazi Garden, built by the Prince and Princess Abkhazi in 1940s Victoria. Or venture out to the fast-growing communities of the Fraser Valley, and tiptoe through the Chilliwack Tulip Festival, where millions of tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths bloom across 20 colourful acres.
