Bucharest Gardens is my favorite part of part of Victoria Island. But there were so many additional attractions, it really is hard to pick:
The castles, the butterfly gardens, the harbor, the museum and its totem poles, a beautiful restaurant on the tiptop of a ravine, the waterways to and from Victoria -- "to" being west from Anacortes through the San Juan islands, and "from" being across the Straits of San Juan to the south, back into Washington.
Everything is worth your while! You mustn't plan less than a week, and more if you can afford it!

This is a beautiful part of Victoria, with plenty of interesting buildings (Fairmont Empress, Parliament Building, Steamship Terminal Building) as well as lovely floral displays, musicians, street stalls, places to eat and places to sit and watch the many comings and goings in the inner harbour itself. Plenty of pleasant walking opportunities, both short and a bit longer, too.

The inner harbour is well maintained and quite pretty with all its flower beds. As with many places in this part of Canada you wonder how Fairmont hotels managed to get their huge building positioned in a prime location, but I guess it’s all lost in history. Generally the area is attractive and interesting, especially with the float planes taking off and landing, although parts could do with a tidy up.

I visited on Canada Day and enjoyed the celebrations. There were amusements for the children, food trucks, and live entertainment.

Love the harbor and all the views. This is a world class city and the harbor is "all that". Plenty of things to see down at the harbor.

Beautiful harbor to look at and walk around. We walked both sides of the harbor as they have a very nice walkway.
