Gay Travel Feature: Victoria, British Columbia

Published Date Author: , November 20th, 2010

Gay Victoria, BCIn early September, my partner and I visited Vancouver to explore British Columbia. While there I insisted that we travel to the elegant city of Victoria to retreat from the hustle and bustle of urban life to be embraced by the breathtaking beauty of the Pacific Coast.

Victoria is a quaint town with only 82,000 people, but don’t let that fool you. There is an abundance of art, culture, shopping, architecture, food and more to enjoy. And it’s all within walking distance. No wonder Victoria was named Canada’s fittest city and the cycling capital of Canada as well. Victoria is a perfect getaway or romantic honeymoon destination for the LGBT community.

Rooted in rich British heritage, Victoria is influenced by many outdoor activities, luxury resorts and Asian traditions. There are many contrasts to the town and yet there is a sublime harmony and ease that makes it one of the most charming locations I have ever visited. Plan to stay longer than you think when you come. Your pace slows down ( it’s island time here ) and there is much to see and do!
