From Cattle Point to Ogden Pier the ocean views overlooking Washington State's Olympic range are spectacular! There's also plenty of stops to park along the way, and you should stop at every one! Cattle Point is great for history buffs, and Clover point has those...More

This is a nice drive along the coast and through very nice residential areas. There are areas to stop and park in order to enjoy the scenery, and the path is generally well marked.

A visit to Victoria is not complete without a tour along the waterfront, starting in James Bay, along Dallas road, past the cruise ships, and on to a few little parks/stopping point and views beyond compare. Windsurfers and kiteboarders are great entertainment, and yes, i...More

Enjoyed the Oak Bay section of the scenic drive. Would not describe views as spectacular but certainly very scenic. There are some fine homes along the way though saw few one would call magnificent

We slowly drove around the southern part of Victoria. There are tons of parks to pull into and walk around. Each one is slightly different, but each has a great view.

I'm not much of an evening person, so I can't recommend evening entertainment. If I had one restaurant near Victoria that I would go to, it would be Deep Cove Chalet--about 30 min drive from downtown--it is truly a special... More
