Known as "Hollywood North," Vancouver boasts one of the largest film/television industries in the world, second only to Los Angeles and New York.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Victoria Butterfly Gardens as well as The Butchart Gardens. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Granville Island and Vancouver Art Gallery. Vancouver Downtown and Lighthouse Park are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Vancouver: Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Richmond) and Fishing Charters & Tours (in Chilliwack). There's much more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Grouse Mountain, snap pictures at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kitsilano Beach, and push the limits with an extreme tour.

To see maps, other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, go to the Vancouver trip planner .

Victoria

Many urban centers call themselves "Garden City," but thanks to its many manicured parks filled with native and exotic plants, Victoria probably deserves than moniker more than most.
On the 27th (Tue), see the interesting displays at Royal BC Museum, then get a sense of history and politics at British Columbia Parliament Buildings, and then take a leisurely stroll along Inner Harbour. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 28th (Wed): admire the natural beauty at The Butchart Gardens, identify plant and animal life at East Sooke Regional Park, and then pick up some local products at Glenwood Meats.

To see more things to do, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Victoria trip itinerary planning site .

Getting from Vancouver to Victoria by flight takes about an hour. Other options: ride a ferry; or do a combination of car and ferry.

Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 29th (Thu) to allow time for the flight back home.
