In the mid-1800s, Victoria was just getting started as a settlement with an estimated 500 residents. When gold was discovered in the Fraser River, an influx of miners — many from the United States — made their way to Victoria, expanding the population to more than 30,000 miners in a short time.

In 1871, Victoria was named the capital city when British Columbia was established as a province of Canada. Through the following decades, the city became a significant destination for fishing, information technology, and forestry, marine, and agricultural research.

With its friendly climate, lush landscape, scenic views, and array of fun activities, Victoria offers a quality lifestyle for its residents and serves as a beautiful destination for business and leisure travelers.

Travel overview of Victoria, BC

Victoria has been one of primary tourist spots in British Columbia; thanks to its relaxed pace of city life, year-round comfortable climate, popular attractions and contemporary topnotch amenities. Whatever your interest is, there is surely something for you to enjoy throughout your stay. Heritage buffs will marvel at the few remaining oldest edifices in town such as 19th century British Columbia Parliament Buildings and Empress Hotel. In addition, it houses the second oldest North American Chinatown next to San Francisco, US and the most intact across the country. Sports enthusiasts have been also flocking into town whenever Victoria would host prestigious sports events such as 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup, the annual Swiftsure International Yacht Race and Bastion Square Grand Prix Criterium. Cultural travelers can indulge themselves with world-class performances by Victorian talents in Belfry Theatre, and by Victoria Philharmonic Choir, Ballet Victoria and Pacific Opera Victoria in Royal Theatres.

Nelly Furtado, a global pop superstar and perhaps the most famous resident of Victoria, British Columbia, once remarked in an interview, 'I would never know what good life is if I had stopped trying. I have never given up, and stood behind myself through thick and thin, and I just hope my own children “ all younger people, really “ do the same. 
Even though it may sound like very vague and generic, there is the power of experience and affection behind those words. The City of Victoria in British Columbia is, in many ways, a shining example of efforts making things happen. 

It is, indeed, the most Victorian city in the whole of Canada. There are signs of the Empire on every corner, in every street and every old buildings. The city and her people have, instead of choosing to disregard their roots, chosen to stick with them and preserve them without any dismay. Right from the name, the city is an exemplary evidence of centuries gone by. 

Founded in the 18th century by adventurers, settlers and missionaries, the origin of Victoria lies in their bullish defiance against harsh weather and unfavorable land. 

Today, however, Victoria is one of the largest cities in Canada, the second largest (only next to Vancouver) in British Columbia and a home to over 80,000 people. 

As much as its historical heritage matters, the present state of the city owes a lot to modern efforts and people who have come from distant corners of the world and adapted her as their own motherland. Victoria of the 21st century is a calm and composed ode to her turbulent and battle-scarred past. It is a city that attracts students from various countries (thanks to over 5 world-class universities it hosts), senior citizens from Canada and working professionals from everywhere. The city is best known for its young population that contributes to the growth and an overall sense of energy that one can feel in Victoria. 

Finding Affordable Hotels in Victoria 

Frequent travelers would know that Canada is not as notoriously priced as other developed countries like the US and the UK when it comes to traveling, lodging and seeing about. Finding cheap hotels in Victoria is a much easier task than finding similar cheap hotels in comparably large cities in other parts of the world. This is not to say that Victoria is a lesser city “ far from that! Victoria, for a few years now, has consistently ranked in the top 20 cities in the world to lead a healthy and happy life. 

So, when you are visiting Victoria, finding an affordable choice of accommodation should probably be the last thing you should have lurking in the backdrop of your mind. From very pleasant bed and breakfast units to modestly set up hotel establishments, Victoria present a full suite of budget hotel options for tourists, travelers and businessmen who are visiting the city for work.

The Craigdarroch Castle is perhaps the best known attraction in Victoria. It is a grand aristocratic mansion flaunting high European architecture that presents itself as an oddity in a faraway Canadian land. Royal Beacon Park, with its lush green grounds and numerous botanical peculiarities should also serve as a refreshing addition to the itinerary of tourists. 

Empress Hotel, British Columbia Museum and the British Columbia Legislature building are not to be missed either, when in Victoria.
