Good Morning, Gardens - Free with your wristband
The Butchart Gardens, as a signature spot in the tourism scene, is often avoided by locals because of the plethora of people who are there during the summer. You can get a guided ride from downtown offered by CVS Tours during the weekend of Be a Tourist In Your Own Town! The Butchart Gardens, however, is one of the very few local attractions that offer season passes for locals at a very affordable rate. As a mostly outside garden, Butchart makes sure that there is something new in every season. During Be a Tourist in Your Own Town, you get access to their beautiful Spring Prelude Indoor Gardens. The Blue Poppy Restaurant is transformed into a dazzling indoor garden spring display with koi ponds, water features, and flagstone paths. The perfect starting point to an ultimate family staycation in Victoria.
