The Ultimate Family Staycation Victoria Be a Tourist In your Own Town

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.

Off to see the Flamingos next - Free, with your wristband

Spending the morning wondering around the spring flowers, it is worth checking the Victoria Butterfly Gardens out next. It is such an amazing experience, walking around the tropical climate amongst thousands of butterflies flying around. Can you spot the flamingos or their rowdy parrot? The Butchart Gardens and the Victoria Butterfly Gardens are free with your wristband on Saturday and Sunday, during the event.
