This is a nice scenic route into Victoria. Decided to take this way into town from Butchart Gardens and loved seeing all the different neighborhoods and the dramatic coastal views. Nice option if you've got some time.

I come here each and every visit to Victoria. It's scenic, photogenic, panoramic, very beautiful and i always seem to make friends here also. Love this route, great place to park and chill, walk down to the ocean, photo shoots, picnic, etc.

Travel the coastline. Amazing collection of older homes to modern new ones. Coastline is so different as you drive along. Several parks to stop and hike through along the way. Great way to spend the afternoon.
